Nigerian reality TV star, Beauty Tukura has gone online to call out a photographer over his ‘outrageous’ fee for a shoot.
She said the Lagos-based creative charged her a total of N500,000 per look and she wanted to do three looks, which means she will pay three times the fee.
Beauty said the photographer asked for a basic fee of N250k with additional N150k for home service and another N100k because it fell on a weekend.
The ex-beauty queen lamented about the amount being too high even for the conditions he gave her to render service.
According to Beauty, it was a member of her team that got in touch with the photographer so he did not deal with her directly in case people are thinking it’s because she’s a celebrity.
She wrote; “Lagos!!! LMFAO… I contacted a photographer to shoot & this is what he tells me…250k per look & an additional 150k because he’s leaving his studio & another 100k because it’s weekend. PS: I was gonna do 3 looks 😂😂 What are your thoughts?
Let me add that I didn’t contact him personally, someone on my team did so it’s not even a case of “celebrity price or whatever”.
It sounds funny to me that I’m paying extra because first, it’s weekend and second, you have to move from your studio in this same Lagos.”

Similarly, Nigerian musician, Habeeb Okikiola also known as Portable recently lampooned music video director, TG Omori over the amount he charges.
Portable apparently contacted Omori to shoot a video for one of his songs and he said the fee is $50,000 (N37 million)
The Zazuu star took to his Instagram story to make noise about the fee and wondered why the director was charging that much.
He said Omori has started to stress him and used one of his favourite lines and noted that someone who wishes to help another person would not stress them.
Portable shared screenshots of their chats in a video, where he also replied to Omori with voice notes lamenting about the money being too high.
