Points and Distributions.
Submitting a lyric on LyrixOfAfrica gets you 100 points by default as long as your lyric is published. Sometimes, users may post lyrics that are already on the site. In such instances, this submitted lyric would not be published and no points would be assigned to the user. Therefore, make sure to search the site first to see if a lyric you want to publish is already on the site.
In some other cases, 2 or more users may be posting lyrics to the same song. When all these lyrics are submitted for review, we pick the lyric that gets posted based on a “First Come, First Serve” basis. The only time we would pick another lyric that is not the first published one is if the first lyric that was posted is simply not usable due to a variety of reasons. Therefore, make sure to keep your lyrics translated to the best of your ability and make sure you post lyrics in timely fashion.
Bonus points and Deduction of Points:
The default points for lyrics is 100 points, however points are sometimes added based on the song submitted and how good the translation into simple English is. To keep up with songs that have bonus points attached to them, you should follow our social media pages which you can find at the top of this page. We would constantly be updating social media with songs that have additional points so you do not want to miss out on that.
Also, posting lyrics to a brand new song (aka. Posting lyrics and translation of songs on the same day of release) gets you a very high chance of getting bonus points.
When will points be deducted: Points are deducted if you post lyrics with incomplete translations. (Remember: Pidgin English has to be translated to Regular English as well). You would still get points for your lyrics but said points would be less than a 100 points.
Points are deducted if you post lyrics by obscure artistes such as your friend’s brother, Emenike who is just trying his hand out on music or your local church choir girl who just recorded her first demo. For songs like this, you would still get points for your lyrics but they would be less than a 100 points.
To get a full 100 points for your submitted lyric, you must have submitted lyrics to a relevant/popular song by a relevant/popular artiste, and translated every line that is not in clear and simple regular English.
Can I submit older songs by relevant artistes? Do I get full points?
Of course! And yes, you would get the full 100 points as long as your lyrics are correct and the translation is clear. What that means is that you can submit lyrics to 2 Face’s African Queen or Onyeka Onwenu’s Ekwe and get the full 100 points that lyrics offer.
I just commented and got no points for my comment, why?
Points from comments have limits: Only 15 comments each day result in points. What this means is that you can get a maximum of 15 points only everyday through comments alone. Can you make unlimited comments every day? Of course! Feel free to comment on whatever you find interesting or relevant. However, know that if you want points for your comments, you can only get 15 every day and a maximum of 2 points from commenting on the same post in a single day. Example: I make 2 comments on Seyi Shay’s “Pack and Go” lyric page and I get 2 points. If I make a 3rd comment on that exact page on that same day, I would get no points. However, on that same day, if I were to go out and comment on Falz’ “Marry Me” lyric page, I would get another point as long as I have not met my 15 comments deadline for the day. After 15 comments every day, you no longer get points…but your comments would still be published as usual.
