In her words:
“Five years ago, I got my first upfront 10 million naira cheque. At that time, I didn’t even think I was worth that much. I remember when the brand contacted my team members to say that they wanted to shoot a commercial first in the previous year. For the commercial year, I think we charged them about 3 million.

After shooting the commercial, I moved on from it. But the MD of the company wanted to have dinner with me afterwards. This was because the commercial had the highest number of views so far. I remember vividly. It was January 15, 2015. The company liked the commercial so they wanted me to be the face of the brand. I thought the pay would be 3.5 million max. But I didn’t know it was a 10 million naira deal.”
