The BlackMusic initiative started 15 years ago to create a cultural and social change in Africa as a whole. They held the first maiden of the annual award to celebrate key players and major achievers in the Nigerian music space in Lagos, Nigeria. According to its convener, Ms. Fehintoluwa Odejide,” the media then were all about trivialities in music rather than quality sounds and that era swept futuristic music away. I am optimistic that we can take our rightful position in global music”. The event celebrates the African style of music and promotes the African culture to the world.
