I received this today. Quick ! Help-Mudcatters! Musicians are finding themselves at stakes in Nigeria. I have heard of burning heretics- but
why burn musicians?- Ah wait a minute- now I see- this one plays R&B and Raps- to the stake with him!
Jack The Lad

Dear sir/ma,

Good looks are much needed representing of authority and style.With so much at town,much like a name,a brand logo is an instrument of a larger-and in the case of promoting and sponsoring,a much larger-entity that many viewers use for identifications. Image,in itself,has the potential to be overplayed but not the option of being under-estimated.

          Certainly ,Sir/ma I am age 21 a young upcoming artist and has this problem to turn to you for help and i believeed you would see me to my feelings.It is a case of promoting a music that[ has been written and packaged) with a problem of recording,sponsoring and viewing publicity.

I must tell you in a sincere heart that the entertainment industry in Nigeria is packed-fill with awaiting discovery stars to be shown on public TV,but found themselves at stakes.(Reason not given). As a global world,entertainment world I am aware that "AMERICA" is a Nation of diversity.At one end of the scale it has well developed industries,Financial institution and communications infrastructures.

                I hereby refered to your organization for help as in the case of promoting my music( R&B and RAPS). Sir, It was this underground MUSIC that drew me to AMERICA( MUSIC)websites:the lilt and wail of the fiddle,the bright laughter of the accordion,the windy purl of the flute.This is the channel of my generation 's forebears;once it got hold of me,the power of my music that comes of it roots in the wild landscape of Nigeria and i believeed it is going to reform the country's history of entertainment.

    Sir/ma,incase you need some vital info from me ,here is my contact address below

9 salvation road off opebi,
ikeja,lagos,
Nigeria.
E-mail:generalquiet@yahoo.com
       OR;kareem4ever@uymail.com

Sir/ma,with due respect i would be very grateful if you come to aid and in one way or the other of support.I shall know how to begin if there is a procedure to follow.Thank you for granting my request also thanking you in anticipation.

Yours faithfully,

Kareem.
         PLZ NOTE:THIS IS NOT A SCAM.........IT IS REAL PLZ.

Fancy beggar? I dunno. Unless he's offering to send you samples of his music it's on a par with those cardboard signs held up by professional veterans at traffic lights. Depends on how charitable you are able to feel, I guess. I think SOrcha's right!

No. don't invite him, please.
(a) If it's a scam you will be wasting your time
(b) if it's real, you are likely to end up in all kinds of bureaucratic situations as the poor guy tries to enlist your support to get a travel visa and/or air tickets and/or an address to travel to.

I have been in this situation trying to organise a scientific conference and bring scientists from Nigeria. I speak from experience that it is a thankless and ultimately pointless business, as the immigration authorities in all Western countries are very well aware of the problems posed by people who travel for ostensibly good reasons and then "defect", claim asylum, or just disappear. Your well-meaning invitation could possibly be cited as a valid travel reason and you could find yourself assuming responsibility for someone you know nothing about. As best you could awaken hopes in the guy which would ultimately be dashed as he fails to get a visa or at worst, he could appear on your doorstep expecting payment and/or support. What do you do then?

ANd some of you have called accordian music "noise". It's "bright laughter". Obviously, this guy has some brains.

Mind you if he came over to the UK and tried to perform, they'd probably lock him up because he didn't have a PEL.

I'm sure you don't need one over in Nigeria.
