How Nigerian Artistes Can Go Viral With Their Songs

Music is huge in Nigeria and while there are
celebrities already dominating the industry, there
are quite a number of them still struggling to be
heard and seen.

No doubt, for every musician - popular or not, the
dream of making every single a major hit is of a
recurring nature. But, how do you go viral with
your music? This is what every musician should do for the to get viral.

•Ensure the song sounds amazing

You cannot expect a song that is not appealing to
the ears or lacking great content to go viral,
really. If you want your song to catch on and go
viral, the obvious answer is for it to be your best
work and nothing less. It has to be catchy and
easy to sing along to. Listeners should be able to
bob their head and smile as they sing along too.
Putting out an amazing song is the perfect way to
make people want to spread your music around,
ensuring it goes viral much faster.

•Put out a video

A great way to reach a large number of people
and get your music across on the internet today
is through video. Video is considered by Google
as a higher form of engagement, therefore you
have a better shot at reaching more people if you
do a video for your music….but not just any
video. It must capture and keep your audienceʼs
attention. Also, endeavour to keep your video
short and entertaining.

•Share your song on all platforms

While social media, especially Twitter and
Facebook are undoubtedly the best and most
reliable platform for boosting the visibility of your
song and making it go viral, you should also
consider the old media: Radio and TV. They are
not "trendy' as much anymore, but they are
definitely still relevant. Push your songs to the
relevant guys on these platforms and see the
effects of massive airtime play. Basically, know
the right people with the right numbers and
influence on all the media - broadcast, print,
social media and other social networking sites
you opt for, and enlist them to support you.

•Get people to do covers of your song

A great way to get your music go viral is to get
your fans and community of friends to do a cover
of your song and post it on social media. With a
number of people making covers and tweeting
about it, even tagging others on Facebook, it is
bound to get some attention and eventually go
viral. To spice things up, you could make it a bit
competitive and attach a prize to the fan with the
best cover. You however must ensure the entire
process is transparent.
