bridging the gender gap in the creative industry

A non-profit organisation based in Lagos, Audio Girl Africa was established to create more opportunities for women in music with audio technology and music business skills. Audio Girl Africa, aimed at nurturing a safe space to create through workshops, internship opportunities and mentorship programs, provides its students the adequate support and professional network that bridges a gender gap in audio engineering and record production in Nigeria.

In line with Women’s history month, Audio Girl Africa is set to launch their first ProducHER series bootcamp in Nigeria, a sequel to their 5-day bootcamp hosted in March 2023. The initiative will be joined by leading Nigerian music label, Mavin Global for the flagship songwriting and recording boot camp held in Lagos. The writing and recording sessions are aimed at fostering a collaboration amongst female creatives across the industry, mobilising them to create and release a project as a group. This year’s boot camp was supported by a series of sponsors including the Warner Music Group(WMG). Managing Director for Warner music Africa, Temilade Adeniji shared, “In awarding Audio Girl Africa with a grant under the Repertoire Fund supported by the WMG BFF Social Justice Fund, Warner Music Africa furthers our commitment to championing participation of young African women in audio technology and the music ecosystem at large.” 

Through this grant, Audio Girl Africa hosted her first 2-day Live Sound Workshop for 2024 in Ibadan, training fifteen young women on the basic skills of live sounds, including live music set up, sound mixing and recording plus more. The ProducHER boot camp series will hold from 11th March to 15th March, extending an invitation to all emerging and independent female producers, vocalists, songwriters and other creatives, to participate in an opportunity to collaborate with some top creators in the industry. With over four years in the making, according to Founder and CEO of Audio Girl Africa, Febe Adedamola, this inaugural ProducHER session promises to be crucial in expanding our creative community with more bright minds.
