Popular Nigerian female singer, Simisola Kosoko, simply known as Simi, has revealed that she used to be paid as low as N5,000-10,000 as performance fee when she was a gospel artiste.

She said the highest she was ever paid then was N70,000.

The ‘Duduke’ crooner disclosed this while featuring on the interview segment of MTV Base Africa’s programme, Official Naija Top 10.

She said, “I actually used to go to a lot of churches to perform. They will pay me like N5k, N10k. Do you know the highest amount of money I actually collected when I was doing gospel [music]? N70,000. And I felt like I had arrived. I still paid a 10 per cent tithe from the money.”

She said at some point she stopped singing because she wasn’t making enough money from gospel music to pay for studio sections and promotions.

Simi said because of lack of finances, she got signed to a record label that she regretted signing for till today.

The mother of one said she later switched to secular music because of the challenges she encountered in the gospel music industry.
