Oct 7, 2013 – Mary J. Blige Got Paid 500 Thousand Dollars To Perform In Nigeria By Etisalat

Few days after an amazing performance that rocked Eko Hotel & Suites, sources from Lagos have revealed how much American singer Mary J Blige got paid just for one night visit.

Insiders claim Nigeria’s telecommunication giant Etisalat paid the R & B singer .5 million dollars for her performance at the Sisters with soul concert.

With N15, 000 being the minimum gate fee for the show, the crowd moderation intended by the organisers was achieved. But the entire space in the popular Expo Center, Eko Hotel and Suites appeared oversized for the elitist show, featuring American Queen of ‘Hip-hop soul’; Mary J. Blige who stormed Lagos last Friday for the Etisalat’s sponsored ‘Sisters with Soul’ concert.

The multiple-award winner and multi-platinum selling artiste took the audience back in time, dolling out her most loved songs from the 90s up until her most recent releases.

The show, which enjoyed the partnership of Kilimanjaro Entertainment, also paraded some of Nigeria’s top female artistes including Seyi Shay, Eva Alordiah, Niyola, Emma Nyra and Ms. Jaie, all performing their hit tracks to the excitement of the audience.

The craze for Nigerian music notwithstanding, the visiting artiste held the crowd spellbound, and just singing along with her at the prompt of every hit track, was an indication that Nigeria is one of the singer’s fan bases. She could not hold back her excitement, as she kept thanking the crowd for their love and support.

The 42 year-old singer and songwriter was clad in a mid-riff baring turtle neck top, leather shorts and knee-length gladiator heels, treating lovers of contemporary R&B, hip-hop and soul music to a great moment that Friday, September 27, 2013.

Etisalat had in December 2012 led the sponsorship of a similar show with Chris Brown tagged ‘Lagos on my Mind’.

After her two-hour performance, Mary J. Blige went on twitter, thanking her fans: “Good morning Lagos. Thank U so much 4 the warm welcome, love & support. I had a great time with U! Sorry I had to leave so quickly. Love. MJB”.

.5 million dollars as we speak in an equivalent of 80,125000.00 Nigerian Naira… how possible?
