Nigerian Song Writer Harrysong Paid 50 Million For MTN Caller Tune

Feb 28, 2014 – Nigerian Song Writer Harrysong Paid 50 Million For MTN Caller Tune

Star artiste Harrison Okiki popularly called Harrysong recently disclosed to Punch in an interview that he was paid over 50 million by Nigerian Telecommunication giant, MTN to compose caller tune.

The Beta pikin crooner further said he charges people one million just to write a song.

Harrysong is currently signed to Kcee-owned five star music. In his own words:“Before now we (songwriters) charged between N100, 000 and N2000, 000 for a song. Today I charge as much as 1million to write a song. Truth is, Nigerian artistes have begun to appreciate songwriters. They pay me my money and appreciate me. I have written a lot of songs but I don’t talk about them because Nigerian artistes don’t like it when the songwriters take credit for compising songs for them.”“The proceeds from the caller-back tune is actually worth more than N50m. Truth is, I was paid a lot of money;  you know –  when they say money that can change someone’s life. That’s the value of what I received
