Popular Nigerian Filmmaker Bolanle Austen-Peters, the daughter of Afe Babalola, a senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) has disclosed that she paid Wizkid, Ice Prince, and Wande Coal N250,000 to perform 13 years ago.
The 54-year-old made this known on Monday while speaking at The Covenant Nation’s national development fair; ‘ The Platform.’
She said: “I remember 13 years ago, I had a party and I invited Mo Hits crew. I’m sure some of you know them. They came with four artists, Wizkid, Ice Prince, Wande Coal, and one more person.
“Guess how much I paid 13 years ago, N250,000 for all of them? Today, I dare not even ask that they come and play for me. The beauty of our youths is that they have been able to transform their talents into wealth and that is something that is commendable and that we all need to start understanding.”
The ‘Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti’ director also commended Nollywood, noting how movies are now being acquired for millions of dollars.
