Who is A Music Producer?

A music producer is involved in every stage of recording music. From pre-production, where they help determine what recordings will be made and with whom, to post-production where they oversee editing and mixing and supervise song selection and sequencing. In most cases, producers are either self-employed or have established relationships with record labels. They can be paid per song or receive royalties based on sales or airplay of records produced by them.

How Much Does It Cost To Produce Song In Nigeria?

If you’re seeking a professional studio, expect to pay ₦800,000 or more per song. You can cut corners with less expensive options (₦80,000-₦200,000) but it will take longer and your quality will be lower. In some cases, it might not be worth it. Is that something you want? Keep in mind that having money doesn’t make anyone a great producer or engineer. However, working with someone who knows what they are doing does. If there’s someone on your team who is a true expert at what they do and if you are willing to pay them accordingly—don’t settle for less than that! Paying too little means taking risks that could result in a poor-sounding track (or worse).
