PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has received his share of the N100 million distributed to musicians recently by the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON). It was not clear how much the President was paid but we gathered that the cheque was sent to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Starconnect was reliably informed that office of the chief of staff in the Presidency has confirmed receipt of the fund. We gthered that the President was entitled to the money since his musical renditions are found in COSON’s repertoire. Musicians registered with COSON received at least N30, 000 as part of general distribution while those who have been on the scene for a while got the sum of 3.037 million Naira as part of specific distribution.
