Chris Brown was paid $1 Million For Lagos Concert
I just heard that Chris Brown got a whooping sum of $1m (about N156m) for a Lagos show, he travelled with a 15 man crew last week, The singer stopped over in South Africa, for concerts in Cape Town and Jo’burg, before heading down to Lagos for the show. No wonder! The event, built into Brown’s on-going world tour, was organised by Kilimanjaro Events – the same company that promoted Rick Ross and Anita Baker in the past.
The oil mogul Wale Tinubu and Etisalat, also made a last minutes donation for the show
Brown was to make a brief appearance at the Oando end-of-year gig, but we’re told that did not happen.It was Brown’s second time in Nigeria, the first being for a THISDAY Music Festival performance a few years ago. Sources told us the fees ‘could have been more’ if he was required to perform with a live band or if he had to do multiple venues or cities.
Although he performed with a DJ and backing track, with two back-up singers and four dancers, he gave a good account of himself, treating fans to almost two hours of a well-planned set that left guests asking for more. Chris Brown’s tour will continue early next year with a scheduled performance in Cote D’Ivoire.
