Godwin Tom furthers his charge on education in the African entertainment space.
The entertainment industry in Nigeria – and Africa at large – is bursting with opportunities at this point in time. According to a report by PwC, Nigeria will be the world’s fastest growing Entertainment & Media market in the world over the next five years.
With growth and opportunity comes a commensurate demand for skilled professionals to fill and leverage these opportunities. This is why Godwin Tom’s company is expanding their music business education repertoire and launching the Music Business Academy, Africa.
In July, they held a Talent Management Online Bootcamp that was spread over four weeks and had dozens of people in attendance. This program further affirmed the need for a focus on music business education.
