Caroline Danjuma says producers of the Real Housewives of Lagos (RHOL) couldn’t afford her.
The actress, who took part in the reality show, spoke about spending her own money during the production.
“I will speak for myself. I wasn’t [paid]. I don’t know about other actresses and their contracts. But, for me, I was told I could not be afforded. They were going to give me an honorarium which had to do with my styling,” she said.
“And that was it. No royalties, nothing. No payment. I spent at least N20 million to N30 million of my own money buying new designer things. Things I hate to do. I paid for more in terms of styling just for everything to work out.”
RHOLagos is the 16th international version of the popular reality show format distributed internationally by NBC Universal Formats, a part of Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group.
It is the third of its kind in the show franchise to be adopted in Africa.
The show follows the celebrity lives of Iyabo Ojo, Toyin Lawani, Laura Ikeji, Miriam Timmer, Chioma Goodhair, and Danjuma.
