The skills and resources of the two organizations are being aggregated to ensure that starting from October 1, no organization using music in a commercial setting or in public anywhere in Nigeria will be allowed to do so without the payment of royalties as required by law.
At the signing ceremony, Okoroji said that the choice of Olusola Adekanola & Co was based on the firm’s proven capacity to deliver.
