As usual, Beyonce fashion, she shut down the show so much so that fans renamed it Beychella and her performance went on to become one of the most talked about in the history of the show.
Beyonce’s Coachella set the pace for other artists so much so that when it came to the choice of this year’s headliner, organizers had to ensure to pick someone that could at least hold a match to Bey’s shine.
The choice for this year fell on “God Is A Woman” crooner, Ariana Grande and the choice of choosing her as headliner made her the youngest person to ever headline the Coachella festival.
According to the Insider, a foreign media, it has been gathered that the Grammy award-winning Grande raked in N2.8 billion ($8 million) for her two headline slots at Coachella festival. While she is totally deserving of the fee, what has got folks talking is the fact that the amount is reportedly, twice the amount Beyonce got for her gig.
Business Insider reports that Beyonce was paid approximately N1.4 billion ($4 million) for her 2018, two-hour “Homecoming” show that sparked a Netflix documentary and a live album of the same name where she performed dozens of her hit songs.
