I Was Paid ₦4000 For A Lead Role In Nollywood – Lateef Adedimeji




Nollywood actor, Lateef Adedimeji has disclosed how he was previously underpaid in the industry despite playing lead roles.

The singer revealed that he was paid ₦4,000 for a lead role in 2014.

The Jagun Jagun’ star said that he only started getting paid ₦100,000 to ₦200,000 for a role in 2015.

He disclosed this on the latest episode of the ‘Deep Dive’ podcast hosted by comedian, Teju Babyface.


Adedimeji said, “If I tell people that I wasn’t collecting N100,000, N200,000 until 2015/16, a lot of people would not believe me.

“Before then, the highest I collected for a lead role was either N4,000, N5,000, or N10,000. I was paid that low back in 2014 because it was more like a learning process.”
