SHOCKING EARNINGS OF YORUBA MOVIE STARS

Post  okechukwu on Tue Jan 22, 2013 7:12 pm

Certainly, it is difficult to believe that no reasonable, successful yoruba movie star has ever been paid up to N500,000 for a lead role in any movie.

Half a million seems a fantastic sum by all indications. Instead, the maximum fee payable to the best actor/actress has remained between N150k & N250k. Even many 'veteran' receive as low as N10k to appear in a film feature.

"As soon as many of them are paid, you will see them rushing to the nearest ATM to withdraw almost all the cash," an amused banker told said recently.

How can yoruba movie star earn a lot, when their movies are only bought by those who understand their language. This is because, yoruba movies are usually spoken in their mother tongue and not in the lingua franca.

Obviously, speaking in English language is common in igbo movies, so anyone can buy and watch their movies.

This is because English is Nigeria’s official language.
