Have you ever wondered how much it costs to have veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) feature in your film? His artiste’s fee must run into several millions, you’ve always believed.
However, as a guest on Africa Magic‘s show Jara, the actor has revealed that he doesn’t cost as much as many people think.
After being asked by the show’s co-host, Uti Nwachukwu if as”one of the most sought-after and respected actors in Nollywood, it must cost a producer millions” to have him in movies, RMD replied, “I don’t know what you’re talking about, I mean we’re in Nigeria.“
He went on, “I find ironically that I cost a lot less either because I’m blackmailed constantly by producers and directors. They’re my boys or their younger, no money. You’ll be amazed that for every three films, I’ll probably do two free, practically for next to nothing. It’s just hard to say no.”
