For 10 Years, @SoundcityTV has been a huge
supporter of #PSquare and the #PSquare brand, right
from their 1st music video to the last video released in
2014. Most of their videos got massive airplay on
@SoundcityTV than any other music channel.
@SoundcityTV viewers sometimes complain about the
dominance of #PSquare videos on the channel &
charts. We were a huge supporter and gave
everything to their works.
We have assisted the #PSquare brand, toured with
them over Africa at our expense.
Gave them ad-spots
for their events / projects. Gave them prime time slots
for their videos and included them in our array of
Programmes / programming.
We invited #PSquare to one of our annual events last
December 2014 and they insisted we pay a certain

reserves the right to air music videos on our cable /
satellite or terrestrial platforms.
Overall, we wish the duo the best in their endeavours.
@SoundcityTV will keep airing works of the best and
upcoming Nigerian artistes, and also, the best
#African artistes to the world, especially nurturing
their talents from inception till they become huge
megastars and international superstars.
