I was collecting N4,000 for a lead role in 2014” – Lateef Adedimeji says as he reveals the greatest advice his father gave him

 

Nollywood actor Lateef Adedimeji is reflecting on his early career days where he was collecting N4,000 for a lead role.

 

In an interview with Teju Oyelakin on Tejubabyface show, he revealed that as far back as 2014, he was being paid N4000 for a lead role. He added that he only started getting paid N100,000 to N200,000 for a role in 2015.

 

He revealed that his father once told him that the day he would know he is successful is when women are surrounding him to get his attention. His father added that the day he will also know that the time of doom is beat us when he can’t caution himself and start following the ladies.

 

His father rang into his ears that females come with the success and the ruin.

 

“If I tell people that I wasn’t collecting N100,000, N200,000 until 2015/16, a lot of people would not believe me.

 

Before then, the highest I collected for a lead role was either N4,000, N5,000, or N10,000. I was paid that low back in 2014 because it was more like a learning process.”

 

My father once told me that the day you know you are successful is when women are surrounding you to get your attention. The day you will also know that the time of doom is near is when you can’t caution yourself and you start following them back. Females come with the success and the ruin”.
