Wizkid earns 3 Million Naira within an hour of Musical performance
For those wondering, 3 Million naira is equivalent to 20,000 USD and about 13,000 GBP
Fortune must really be smiling on the newest kid on the block in the music scene in Nigeria at the moment and if possible, for a very long time; I am talking about no other person than Ayo Balogun Ibrahim known in the entertainment industry as Wizkid “Weezy”. There is no doubt in the fact that he is right now the best thing happening in the music industry at the moment. Since his debut album “Super Star”, he has been head lining musical concerts and growing from strength to strength which makes him the envy of all other artistes at the moment. This also means more money to the singer. Just recently, he was contacted to perform at an Oando sponsored event which was held at the city hall penultimate week where he performed alongside O4kasibe crooner DJ Zeez.
It will interest you to know that he was paid a whopping N1.5million for his less than 1hr performance; but just after his performance and he was about leaving the stage, the MD/C.E.O of Oando PLC, Mr. Wale Tinubu, beckoned on the young singer and told him to continue and as a result, eyewitness said an additional N1.5million was added to his fee. The elated Wizkid obviously amazed and short of words sang Wale Tinubu's praises to heaven. He was heard singing something like “Uncle Wale, Won bad gan; Uncle Mi, Uncle Wale won bad gan”. If its you, won't you turn hip hop music to Fuji when you see the money involved. Wizkid enjoy your money wisely.
