@ anonymous 06:14...u r a fool,teju babyface is a top comedian whether he got there by ali baba or chris rock is not the issue, the issue is that he is there...what do you expect him to charge? 200k? After his years of hustling to make a name? If he charge 200k trust Nigerians them go prize am to 50k...you sound cheap, you should v gotten an upcoming comedian dt is on ur level and would charge you 5k...I dnt know the guy from anywhere and I dnt want to know him but some pple shld try to appreciate other pple's hustle so dt God will bless ur own hustle too...Gbam!

This annonymous 2:14, why so bitter? If u can afford 1million for him to mc your wedding, how is it his fault? Without one or two people, who would be where they are today? He stated a fact and you are there, hating from the shells of your poverty.

Folks, which one is cheaper sef? To wed in Naija or to wed in Europe?Am not finding this naija wedding tingy funny at all ooo.To wed in Nigeria is damn too expensive...Damn..it's not easy to be a man.....working my arse out here in cold London,paying bills et al..and now having to spend millions wey I no even get for a wedding.And come to think of an ordinary MC asking for 1M to talk rubbish, eat my food,drink my wine and walk away for 2 hrs....Why would I do this?This is crazy....
I think I will just quietly do it here - with £10k - £15k,I think I will reasonably have a decent and romantic wedding here.
1M my arse for MCing....

Its actually true! AY doesn't get out of bed for less that 1million naira, not to talk of julius Agwu and ali baba who are veterans in the field! They earn millions in an hour... Even the lesser known comedians charge up to 500k... Its quite a lucrative field. He isn't being rude, he is just stating a fact and that is one sentence! Y'all don't know what context it was in! Urgh!

bisola said...

at anon 2;14pm.so why dont u just call alibaba then.

kcee said...

Our movie industry no de try at all.

saemoenl said...

But they earn respect more than the so called money making comedians. Sorry if I offend any one here Bcos' the society see the comedians as semi bus conductors.

Nope, nollywood invented do your research...except ure Omotola! She's the highest paid actor . I'm a producer. Forget the hype.

Zicolo said...

Well, he is saying the truth. No beef the guy joor.

marbeeexcel said...

Teju should be advised to watch his utterances. Pride goes before destruction. He just try and spend such his charges wisely not like those showing off with powerful auto mobiles that can destroy them tomorrow.

marbeeexcel said...

Do you need to say it out Teju? Watch your utterances please! Pride goeth out before destruction. Just use your own money wisely not like those showing off.

The Kinkster said...

1) He didnt need to voice it out however true, since it just comes off as disparaging the other profession

2) Then they are grossly overpaid sha, since 90% of the comedic material they put out right now is absolute shyte!

Anonymous said...

Errrrr...... Not really funny sir. And you need to do something about this bold font. It's hurting my eyes. Apart from that,i love ur boldness with putting ur name et al

Anonymous said...

The truth is bitter ooo. Teju was my favourite comedian in 2008/2009. Each time that I felt very sad. I used to watch his clips on YouTube and felt better for the day.

He is not that much funny at the moment because he is no longer a stand-up comedian but a sit-down comedian.

@Teju Babyface Babalakin, beware ooo. Watch your sharp tongue. Some people will assume that you are showing off while they cannot afford a bicycle. How many charity homes have you built? Ha ha ha! Aiye o feni foro...

Lol Susan Peters did u just say "some of us"? you and who? What makes you think you are an A-lister? When people like Mercy Johnson, Genevieve,Omotola,Nse ikpe,Uche jumbo and others are talking u too will talk. Abeg find yourself for D-list joor.

Shut the hell up you silly, untamed, multicoloured scary faced attention seeking low life susan peters. You A list actress??? Abi na A list ashi???

Anonymous said...

Let's all wait for a moment and ask is this the whole quote?

Do you know Teju started out as an actor? (Diamond Ring). If you know teju like i do, in his several interviews he said he waited for scripts and roles to come, when they didn't come he moved on to comedy. On one of his show with Genevieve, he said he auditioned the same day with her and Desmond Elliot, Diamond Ring now is now 13yrs ago, in his latest interview, he was asked why he didn't go back to acting, it was logical to compare both fields, he was making more money as a comedian and even more than if he was an actor.

Do you know he/others can MC a wedding and then go on to MC a dinner the same day? Smiling home with about N2m in about 4hrs of work? Someone here said Omotola takes N5m for a role, do you know the same role might take about a month to complete? If these quote was about 5/6yrs ago, I would say it was pride but now I know where the context was from. Lets move on and free Prince Gbadewonula Olateju Jacob-Oyelakin (omoba Ajaawa)

Oh shut up! Is he more of a nigerian than the rest of us? We don't hustle? Idiot. Oshisko.

Franklyyours said...

olaeju...but sha i must co-sign.o gberaga! you are f**king proud! no be beef oo, cox i like the young man hustling that you are.
Ooo de mo oro so! you jux open your pie hole and chat nonsense. But Olorun wa lehin e ni sha oo.. never forget that and He will not leave you IJN.
People follow you on twiter, iwo naa n form celeb, to ff back di wahala.. they mention you to reply Oran..abi o tun fe gba 1mill fun reply ni?
To @donjazzymohits you're a kidd (moneywise) and he still replies mentions, follows people. ake note
Finally i was in a Soiree and you were just an invitee, but the airs you came in with was rather repulsive. you see, olateju, you dont have to voice certain things out before they are heard, even if you're being mis understood, make a concious effort to be understood. At the same event, Gbenga Adeyinka came in and worked the room saying hello to about 5% of the about 1000 guests, took a photo with a fan beside me and even asked people around if they wanted photos with him... bo shey n shee niyen.
God bless you, the works of your hands and on yo late dad, eyin baba a da oo...

CC said...

I've never seen a comedian be a wedding MC anywhere else in the world just in this our obodo Nigeria. I've been to weddings MC'd by them & its so inappropriate, they make off color jokes & generally just try to take shine off the couple, very tacky.
So whatver the "prize" of their services, they should leave MCing to real professionals like Dayo Benjamin & co.
By the way there is a difference between price & prize.

I don't think its upto that, I think is over exaggerated...Omotola earns 5Mil per movie and wore rags for the grammy. Pls let's not go there.

Femiluv said...

Omotola, 5 mil. Genevieve 2 mil..sorry, that doesn't make sense.

What's happening to our comedians? They used to be funnier 5-6 years ago. I was watching I Go Die and Basketmouth's London show a couple of months ago and was disappointed.

SUSAN PETERS DON MISYARN AGAIN. SMH.
Who dash you A-Listers and why are you commenting on a blog you abused since. Good job your income is based on reading out other peoples scripts and not using yours and your acting aint even all that.

oscar said...

You are a foolish boy. You started out as an actor before dabbling into comedy. Saw you first on DIAMON RING produced by Tade Ogidan. Tomorrow now you willbrag that you earn more than Senetors.

Anonymous said...

@Rockstar,you are very DAFT!!The 10-15k pounds you are talking about,do you know that triples the 1m,you are talking of.No be only u dey London abeg.Weddings abroad can go for less than that 10k you are talking about.

And as for babyface,he shouldn't be talking,its only people like Basketmouth and Alibaba that can give such amount.The guy is not funny to me at all.
