Scriipo Academy assists artists in growing their professional and creative careers.
As many young music producers know, it can be difficult to maintain creative inspiration in the studio. Scriipo Academy can assist in professional growth with its many unique courses, such as the science of drum programming, song structure, finding the right melodies and chord progressions to fit your unique sound, and overcoming creative blocks, just to name a few.
Gospel on De Beatz saw a gap in the African music market with a lack of education and guidance on navigating a professional music career. He created the academy as a way to give back to the creative economy through his own experience, knowledge, and challenges he had to personally overcome to achieve industry success. He is committed to closing the gap of lack of education and guidance in the African music scene and becoming a mentor for aspiring artists.
There are great opportunities for investment and growth in the African music industry, as it's gaining momentum globally.
Afreximbank, led by Professor Benedict Oramah, recently positioned the creative industry as a major tool for Africa’s GDP.
A committed 500 million USD support fund has now been initiated to continue successful growth and assist artists like Gospel on De Beatz on their initiative to create a strong business structure in the African music sector. A study conducted by Statista in Nigeria revealed that the music sector’s revenue grew from 26 million USD in 2014 to 34 million USD in 2018. With artists such as Burna Boy and Davido now bleeding into the US market, the sector’s revenue is expected to grow to 44 million dollars by 2023, according to Statista.
