Olayode Juliana ( Toyosi Aka Toyo Baby Of Jenifa Diary TV Series), has recently been removed from the Cast of the popular Nigeria TV series, Jennifer diaries.
Sources say her position on the cast of the TV series was terminated as a result of her requesting an increment on her pay on the show.
Sources close to SceneOneProductions, the producers of Jenifa’s Diary, further revealed that the producer of the show, Funke Akinkele via her production manager and younger sister – Abimbola – pays actors between N3,000 and N150,000 (per episode/season of the show) depending on the role.
Sources also revealed Funke Akindele (jenifa) felt Olayode was an ingrate for asking for a raise due to the clear fact that being on “Jenifa’s Diaries” was a stepping stone to her rise to stardom.
An anonymous actress who was on the cast of the show for an all night party at Jenifa’s house revealed that she and co-actors where paid just #3000, after an all night shoot for Jenifa’s Diaries.
Sources confirmed that actors Lota Chukwu, Omotunde Lolo 1, Falz D Bahd Guy (who has also left the show) and Olayode Juliana are the highest paid actors who earn about 150k per season. The rest take home much lesser money. while minor castings earn as low as 3k .
Stars like Tiwa Savage, Toke Makinwa and others who have had cameo appearances on the show reportedly got between 100k and 300k for just coming to ‘show face’. This is not what other actors would describe as fair.
