I was being paid N4,000 for lead roles in 2014 – Lateef Adedimeji

Popular Nollywood actor, Lateef Adedimeji has revealed the paltry amount was receiving many years ago despite playing lead roles in movies.

The ‘Jagun Jagun’ star recalled when filmmakers used to pay him as low as N4,000 for a lead role in 2014, and he only started getting paid N100,000 to N200,000 for a role in 2015.

Lateef made this known when he appeared as a guest on the latest episode of the ‘Deep Dive’ podcast hosted by actor and comedian, Teju Babyface.

He 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.”
