We don’t know if you heard it but earlier this year, Facebook announced their music monetization aspect on Facebook and Instagram and Occulus. Information reaching us reveals that facebook will begin to pay artistes whose songs were registered on the platform and are monetized.
Anyways, the good news is that this monetization will benefit all musicians (both stars and upcoming) in Nigeria. All you need do is to register the song with Facebook Sound Collection and BAM! You are on to getting fat pay check from Facebook.
See some of the upcoming artistes songs we have registered already with facebook:

How does the Facebook Monetization service work?
With Facebook Monetization, users will be able to use your music in the content they create and share on the Facebook and Instagram platforms. This will be super beneficial to artistes who for example run contests/challenge asking people to dance to their songs, when they do this and share on FB or IG, as your song is played underneath those videos, facebook sound collection will gather some dollars for you. It is similar to Youtube sound recording if you understand what that means.
How much does it cost to monetize my music on Facebook?
Top Naija Music will register one song for N15,000 only and album/EP for N50,000 only. You will get 80% of the revenue we collect from Facebook. Now, being your distributing agent, we will be in charge of your account and then you can contact us from time to time to get update about how much you have earned.
