I’m writing to propose an event themed “ROOTS: Concert & Album Launch”


Our lives are marked by epochs characterised either by a singular event or strings of several ones - and we find that we have aged or matured not necessarily because of the passage of time, but much more because of these epochs.

2014 marked the end of one of the most momentous epochs in my life. At the end of that year, I had written my 110th song, more than half of which held (and still holds) serious significance to me. These songs define the roots of my consciousness and convictions.

I want to pick the 6 of the most significant of them to immortalise as I perform them live in concert in the physical and the virtual worlds.


Ticketing And Admittance.

NFT Tickets will be sold and those who purchase it will be privy to certain perks like front row seats, post-event photoshoots and interviews with me, complimentary drinks and free autographed audio CDs.

The concert will be streamed live in the Metaverse (NearHub) for those who will be unable to make it to the event in person. Five lucky attendees will get the chance to participate in a random draw for prizes (a Near Roots branded T-Shirt :tshirt:, $50 dollars or NFT videos). These perks will serve the purpose of stimulating, incentivising and appreciating attendees.

The Video

The high quality video produced as a result of the concert will be minted as NFTs and sold. Those who buy these NFTs will also get ornate DVDs in lavish packs sent to them as totemic representations of the NFTs.


Social media marketing and advertising will be used generously to garner publicity. NxM Social Media and other affiliated platforms will create substantial hype on Twitter, Instagram et alia.

The Rehearsal

I project three to four weeks of intensive rehearsals, a band of 4 to 5 musicians including 2 backup singers.


The entire project will run between 3 to 4 weeks ie 7th to 30th of September, 2022, with 30th of September as the tentative date for the concert.

Milestones and Metrics

  1. 20 NFT tickets sold at least

  2. At least 60 people in attendance

  3. At least 15 virtual attendees in the Metaverse

  4. Onboard Tobi Osho, an established artiste.

  5. Produce 3 NFTs (audio, video and pictures)


Mixing and mastering $300
Venue ( Citizen’s Place, Oremeta, Lagos) $200
Sound System $100
Graphics, infographics for the event, Fliers, &Banners $200
Logistics $100
Video Coverage &Streaming $200
5 Musicians $250
Video Production $100
Adverts & Publicity (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) $100

Total $1550

My ask is $1000 with $500 up-front per NxM funding policy. I will augment the funds provided personally.

Thanks, @NxM.


We commence preparations immediately.

Cheers :clinking_glasses:


Thanks for the proposal.

Can you share more details of the events.

  • Where is the venue and are you paid by the venue for the activites ?

Also what is the difference in both of these.

The venue is now Ethereal Productions Studios

The latter part of the question is unclear. Could please, rephrase?

The Video Coverage and Streaming charge is for the cost of the live video coverage and live streaming to platforms including Nearhub and social media.

Video Production basically refers to the post-production (or post-processing) of editing, etc. the videos.




Hello, @NxM.

Preparations are underway to make #rootsconcert a resounding success.

The venue and musicians have been secured and rehearsals have begun.

I, however, have to report that the concert, earlier slated for the 30th, has been postponed till the 21st of October, 2022.

The major reason for this postponement is the apparent difficulty in scoring, rehearsing, etc. 6 original songs before the 30th.

Apologies for the inconveniences this postponement may have posed, and thank you for your support.

Hello Everyone!

This is just an update, not the report proper.

The event happened as scheduled. Video and audio are currently undergoing post-production processing. When this is done, a premiere will be held on Nearhub and a report will be provided.

We made magic and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.

Thanks @NxM
