The saying, stars don’t come cheap has proven to be true on several occasions and it is not different for 27 years old rapper, Cardi B who rose from stripping to being a multiple award winning star.
The seasoned rapper who thrilled fans in Africa after she graced the continent in style to perform in Lagos and in Ghana, made her sponsors roll out very huge amount of money for her appearances.
According to reliable sources, the disarmingly sweet and charming reigning star’s trip to Nigerian and Ghana cost about $5m dollars which translates to a staggering, N1.8billion Naira.
Sources revealed that Nigeria and Ghana, budgeted about $2.5million dollars each! The 2.5m dollars covers the performance fees per country and the production costs per country too.
The production costs includes hotels/accommodation bills for Cardi B and her entourage, it also includes the chartered private jet and all other incidentals that could accrue for the trip.
It was discovered that Cardi B’s performance fee for Nigeria alone is between $800,000 and $1.2m Dollars and same goes for the Accra concert.
Furthermore, it seems the whole concert is not an initiative of Darey Art Alade and his wife Deola as widely speculated. Looks more like a type of collaboration and their brand were just in charge of production and all. Indeed stars don’t come cheap.
