Frontline Nigerian comedian, Ali Baba, has boasted that Nollywood actors are not as rich as comedians.

He posited that, while a movie could take about four months before its release, a comedian within that time frame would have made much more cash.

Ali Baba brags that there is hardly an actor that that charges N1 million or N2 million per movie unless you are in the top end of the hierarchy such as RMD, Genevieve, and Omotola but comedians charge up to such amount.

“Nigerian comedians make a lot of money than actors. You wouldn’t’t believe but let me tell you. You shoot a movie, it takes 4 months for the movie to be released and they get paid. There is hardly an actor that charges N1 million or N2 million per movie unless you are in the top end of the hierarchy such as RMD, Genevieve, and Omotola. But then, there are comedians that charges N800,000 or N1 million per event. In four months, such comedian would have done maybe 30 events but because he doesn’t do a movie that is on cable TV that can be seen in Kenya, South Africa, and all across the country, people do not think he is making that kind of money” he told a popular daily newspaper.
“Actors shoot a movie and it takes there are quite a number of Nigerian comedians whose wives do not have a job but they still live large. A popular comedian would have performed at 6 to 8 different shows in a month before a Nollywood actor wraps up shoot on set of a movie” he further said.
