I was collecting N4,000 per lead role in 2014 – Lateef Adedimeji

Nigerian filmmaker cum movie actor, Lateef Adedimeji has recounted how he was underpaid despite playing lead roles in movies.

He also stated that he saw the period as a learning experience.

The ‘Jagun Jagun’ star recalled that he was receiving as low as N4,000 for a lead role in 2014, 10 years ago.

According to Lateef Adedimeji, he only started getting paid N100,000 to N200,000 for a role in 2015.

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

Lateef 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.”
