Nigeria’s foremost music chart publication, TurnTable Charts, and Nigeria’s largest music community, WeTalkSound, have teamed up to launch a music certification body in Nigeria called Recording Certification of Nigeria (RCN).
TurnTable Charts, which launched in July 2020, has sought out to create solutions around different problems emanating from a lack of structure within the Nigerian music scene. Having partnered with WeTakSound (WTS) on a number of projects, the two organizations are formally collaborating on one of the most ambitious projects involving Nigerian music.
The team of Recording Certification will consist of the data department of TurnTable Charts; TurnTable Data & Analytics, and founding members of WeTalkSound. With time, RCN will move to bring in more individuals that align with its goals and core values.
