Portable Zazu Paid 60 Million To Perform In Cameroon
Nigerian rapper Portable Zazu has reportedly been paid 60 million to perform in Cameroon. The singer, who is known for his hit song “Zazu Zeh,” is said to have been booked for a show in Limbe, the capital city of Fako Division, South Region of Cameroon.
The news of Portable’s hefty fee has been met with mixed reactions from fans in both Nigeria and Cameroon. Some have expressed their support for the singer, while others have criticized the promoters for spending so much money on a single performer.
Portable is not the first Nigerian artist to be paid a large sum of money to perform in Cameroon. In 2018, Davido was reportedly paid 50 million to perform in the country.
It is unclear how much of the 60 million fee Portable will actually keep. However, it is likely that a significant portion of the money will go to the promoters of the show.
The high cost of booking Nigerian artists to perform in Cameroon has been attributed to the high demand for their music in the country. Nigerian music is very popular in Cameroon, and many Cameroonians are willing to pay top dollar to see their favorite artists perform live.
It is also worth noting that the cost of living in Cameroon is relatively high. This means that the cost of booking a Nigerian artist to perform in the country is likely to be higher than the cost of booking a similar artist to perform in Nigeria.
Despite the high cost, booking Nigerian artists to perform in Cameroon is a lucrative business for promoters. Shows featuring Nigerian artists often sell out quickly, and promoters can make a significant amount of money from ticket sales.
In addition to ticket sales, promoters can also make money from sponsorships and merchandise sales. Shows featuring Nigerian artists are often sponsored by major companies, and promoters can also sell merchandise such as T-shirts and hats.
Overall, booking Nigerian artists to perform in Cameroon is a high-risk, high-reward business. Promoters can make a lot of money if the shows are successful, but they also risk losing money if the shows do not sell out.
