Lateef Adedimeji, a famous Nollywood actor, has narrated some of the amounts he was paid in the past despite playing lead roles in movies.

Adedimeji recalled being paid as low as N4,000 for a lead role in 2014.

The ‘Ayinla’ star said in 2015, he started getting paid N100,000 to N200,000 for a role.

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

“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,” he said.

Lateef Adedimeji is famous for his work in the English and Yoruba-language sectors of Nigeria’s film industry, Nollywood.
