The Nigerian music industry has grown a lot in recent years. Our musicians now earn mind boggling sums for their performances around the world. But sometimes, these musicians exaggerate on the amount of fees they receive for said performances.
An example of this would be Burna Boy. The popular musician revealed in a recent post on social media that anyone who wanted him to perform at any event should be ready to part with $50,000 (N15.2 million, official rate).
While fans and critics alike were still coming to terms with Burna earning such a huge amount of money, Shatta Wale a Ghanaian dancehall artiste appeared to confirm that indeed, Burna was earning $$50,000.
He said in a recent video that he and Burna Boy performed at a 5-year-old girl’s birthday party and were paid $100,000. Watch the video below:
Burna also put news website MTV Base on blast for comparing him to another dancehall act Patoranking.
