Understanding Music Royalties for Nigerian Artists

Are you an artist looking to maximize your earnings from streaming platforms? Understanding music royalties and how they work is crucial for your success.

At Viral Playlists Digital, we provide tools and resources to help you navigate the music industry and get the most out of your music.

Our stream calculator is designed specifically for Nigerian artists to estimate earnings from various streaming platforms.

What Are Music Royalties?

Music royalties are payments made to rights holders (songwriters, composers, recording artists, and producers) whenever their music is used. These royalties are a major source of income for artists and can come from different sources such as streaming platforms, live performances, and synchronization with visual media.

Types of Music Royalties

  1. Performance Royalties: Earned when your music is played on the radio, TV, in public spaces, or live performances.
  2. Mechanical Royalties: Earned from physical or digital sales, such as CDs, vinyl, and downloads.
  3. Streaming Royalties: Earned from plays on streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.
  4. Synchronization Royalties: Earned when your music is used in synchronization with visual media like movies, TV shows, and advertisements.
