Let us fear God oh… Even the so called BIG brands like #GLO, #MTN etc that we know make BILLIONS per annum, hardly sign celebrities with such big amount.? Honestly, when they tell you they just signed a multi million Naira contract, my people many a times, the figures are inflated.? There is nothing someone will not hear in Nigeria, wait, are these hype also for publicity or what biko??
