Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), Africa’s fastest growing collective management organization for musical works and sound recordings will hold an Extra-Ordinary General Meeting (EGM) on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 in Lagos. The meeting will take place in the Arena of the magnificent COSON House, Ikeja.
A major highlight of the meeting will be the consideration by members of the society of a proposal to be submitted by the Board for the distribution of royalties for the year 2017.
Speaking on the forthcoming EGM, COSON General Manager, Mr. Chinedu Chukwuji said, “There is no gainsaying that COSON has continued to be on top of her game. Despite the harsh economic down turns being experienced in the country, COSON remains bold and as a collective management organization continues to ensure that at the end of the day, copyright owners in the music industry do not work in vain and get regular income from the exploitation of their works. We remain committed to the growth of our industry”.
Also speaking on the forth coming EGM, music artiste and COSON Director, Azeezat Allen said “Seeing how effectively and efficiently COSON runs today gives me joy, because it is on record that COSON has thrived successfully in places and sectors many people thought they didn’t stand a chance. Today, we have a collective management organization that does not give excuses or tell stories. It may appear like a dream to some but it is worthy of note that COSON has paid royalties every year since inception. I am looking forward to December 19, 2017 with hope that once again, our great COSON will say a meaningful “Merry Christmas” to its thousands of members, assignors and affiliates.
