This year promises to be an exciting one for upcoming musicians as Gbeduhour Entertainment, launches a new platform for upcoming artistes- Gbeduhour.com. Tipped as the no 1 website for upcoming artistes, gbeduhour will also feature Online Music & Video Competitions. In between competitions, there will be weekly prizes for music fans to win.
Speaking on why he delved into the project, Chief Executive of Gbeduhour, Babajide Igun noted that he felt the need to fill the vacuum in the music industry and provide avenues for upcoming artistes to get into the mainstream. “I’ve been working on this project for about three years. The Nigerian music industry is evolving and there’s a need to continue satisfying music listeners. Over the years, I have seen talented upcoming artistes suffer, not because of the quality of their music, but for their inability to rightly explore the opportunities that lie there-in. One will say, ‘if your music is good, you’ll make it.’ While that’s true, it doesn’t happen to everyone who does good music. Gbeduhour however intends to bridge that gap. “
He added that “Currently, the Nigerian music industry is the number one in Africa and the opportunities that are in it are quite numerous, and we are only taking advantage of them. One of our aims is to empower Nigerian artistes and we have devised various means to achieve that.”
Amongst its many offerings, Gbeduhour will provide free music beats on a monthly basis from seasoned producers, home and abroad, for artistes to make a recording on. To use this platform, artists must first register on www.Gbeduhour.com and then they will be granted access to download these music beats for use. A deadline for each competition will be set, and immediately after, an online voting process will commence to determine the monthly winner of the grand prize.
Once again, artistes and fans should register on www.gbeduhour.com to take part in this.
