In a trending podcast with actor Kunle Remi, Nedu opened up on the wide margin in regards to how much artists were paid for shows.
Nedu recounted how Wizkid and another artiste received different payments for shows.
According to the OAP, while Wizkid was paid $200,000 for one show, the unidentified artiste was paid $80,000 for three shows.
He also shared how Wizkid rejected a gig because the organizers offered him less than his pay.
