On this episode, I spoke with Temitope Salami, one of the leading entertainment lawyers in Nigeria, about music contracts, split sheets issues, and copyright battles across Africa’s music industry:

  • Nomcebo Zikode/Ntimela Chris Chauke/ vs Master KG (‘Jerusalema’ copyright battle)
  • Portable and Poco Lee ( ‘Zazu Zeh’)
  • Carter Efe vs Berry Tiga and Producer X (‘Machala’)

Our conversation also covered building a legacy through wills and estate planning as well as Tope’s efforts to empower African artists and creatives through his creative firms The Creative Yard, and The Y, The X.

Pause and take a quick second to think about how you generally get to know about an upcoming film. Is it through the trailer or film still?

For a lot of people in Nigeria, their first exposure is most likely usually through the trailer. Film stills generally come second or even third. Why is that?

Chukwuka Osakwe, an emerging Photographer, filmmaker and director based in Lagos, Nigeria, joins us to explain the need for more unit photographers in Nollywood movies and why stills are critical to the success of a film.  

He is also passionate about the treatment of film production crews in Nigeria. "If you hold people's money back for that long, 2 months, after the hard work that they've done, for how ever long we were on set for, I think it's just very unfair," Chukwuka says. 

We hope you enjoy the conversation!
