It’s the end of 2016, with just over a month left before we whip out our diaries and begin our ‘New Year’ resolution ritual. Yep.2016is almost at its end, and activities are in place for artistes tocashout via performances.
Where previous years have been dominated by the traditional mega concerts which feature a long list of performers and one major star, this year is different. The focus of this year’s growth of stars have been on their person, and they are wielding it as a tool to generate personal, independent income. Independent, artiste-driven concerts is the new thing.

2016 is the year where artistes have grown bolder, and have chosen to maximize their celebrity and fan base to create personal concerts.Phyno’ssuccesfull concert has left many with the inspiration to do more. The rapper whose concert is in its second year and took place on Sunday, November 27,2016at theNnamdi Azikiwestadium was by every standard asuccess. Over 25 thousand people were present, screaming to his every word, and enjoying his performance.

That showed thepowerand influence thatPhynocommands from his home base, and many artistes who hitherto have felt a bit scared are looking at these concerts. They might not fill stadiums, or command the attention thatPhynoreceived. But they will be giving their fans a personal performance of their music, and taking independent data from attendees.

This data can then be used to generate a personal marketing plan, and also give them a rough estimate of how much they have in the bag in terms of fan base, and inspire them to work harder.
