Why incorporate your Entertainment Company?

Registering your entertainment company as a private limited company provides many benefits and is an important step in establishing a legal and professional business.
Here are some reasons why Entertainment Company Registration is important:

Separate Legal Entity

It is a separate legal entity that possesses all the rights to sue or to be sued. It acts as an artificial person and can buy any property or assets in its own name.

Legal protection

If there are any legal disputes or liabilities, they will be directed toward the company rather than you personally.

Brand Protection

Your company name will be protected and cannot be used by any other company, nor can another company register a name that is similar to your own company name.


Registering your company can increase your credibility in the eyes of clients, partners, and investors. It shows that you are a legitimate business and are committed to operating professionally.

Perpetual Succession

A private limited company has perpetual succession, which means that it can continue to exist even if its owners change or pass away. This provides stability and continuity to the company, which can be important in the entertainment industry.

Access to funding

Registering a music company can help you access funding from banks, investors, and other financial institutions. It provides a formal structure for your business, making it easier to apply for loans and other forms of financing.

A company limited by shares is a corporate entity that is legally separate from any directors and shareholders. As it can stand alone as a legal entity, it can enter contracts as a company and hold assets in its name.

The word limited here refers to the shareholder’s limited liability. They are only responsible for any company debts up to the value of their shares within that company. No personal assets are at risk.

Shareholders are people who own shares in a limited company – and shares indicate how ownership of the company is divided. Therefore, shareholders collectively own the business.

Anyone, including both individuals and organizations, can be a shareholder in a limited company. Shareholders have a say in some company decisions (‘voting rights’), like changing the company name and appointing or removing directors. But shareholders don’t run the company unless they’re also directors.

To incorporate a private limited company, a minimum of 1 shareholder/owner is required, and can have up to a maximum of Fifty Shareholders. A private limited company must have a minimum of 1 Director. The shareholder can also act as the Director. 

The Director needs to be over 18 years of age and must be a natural person. There are no limitations in terms of citizenship or residency. Therefore, even foreign nationals can be Directors in a Nigerian Private Limited Company.
