Africa: Songwriter Credits + (Nigeria)

These days, I am getting used to receiving messages from legal colleagues within and outside Africa curious about Africa’s intellectual property laws and specifically, Nigeria’s as it pertains to its fashion and entertainment industries.  If you are interested in knowing what I have to say (I always have a lot to say :)), feel free to begin with my latest article on Songwriter credits featured on is probably the most popular music online site for Nigeria’s music industry. I author a basic law and business column targeted at the industry titled ‘Ask Ms. Uduak.’

Also, I was just notified by one of the editorial team members at about their legal publication called ESQ Legal Practice. The magazine site features a listing of law firms in Nigeria, among other things.Check them out here.
