People are always talking about how much musicians and footballers earn and it’s expected. However an intense research conducted shows that female Nigerian actresses aren’t doing tooKate-Henshaw bad for themselves either.

This is a list of the top 15 highest paid actresses per script.

15. Uche Jumbo N450,000

4. Omotola Jolade. N1.5m>

3. Patience Ozonkwo N1.6m

2. Ini Edo N1.8m

1. Genevieve Nnanji N2m


  1. The money they charge per movie is too small. How could they be paid only #450,000 & 700,000 etc. is too small compared to their standard, but well, anyway, Genevieve try. Atleast she has been paid #2m. What of Nkieru Sylvanus & Tonto Dike etc. are they not among………

  2. Though omotola started acting career b4 ini edo,..Ini haz acted more movies dan her nd she’s 1 of d mst seeked actressd in nollywood n intl….Genevieve also worth d gap she gave omotola coz she acts berra dan her

  3. This shows Nigeria to be one of the best places to do business in the world; with a consumer society of over 160 millions. Think well again before you go slaving away in a foreign land. If you put equal dedication, effort and time, as much as do our brothers overseas, you will make it in Nigeria. Just throw away your unprofitable pride, have a vision/business plan and be committed to it. Be ready to suffer/endure before enjoyment. Imagine you have a product or service with as little as N5 gain and you are able to reach 5000 customers/day, you can make cool N500,000 per month. Nigeria is still an under explored market with need for many more goods and services; majority of the existing goods and services can still be improved upon to make your own profit.

    You just need to be determined, God fearing and be willing to share your turn over with others; by way of employment. SO YOU ACTORS AND ACTRESSES WATCH OUT! THE REST OF US ARE COMING UP!

  4. Noel,I feel u jare. Don’t mind them,hw can Genevieve collect 2million,does she act more than Mercy Johnson and Omotola? This rating is fake joor!!!! Even if she has been acting for long,it doesn’t matter, the gap is much and Exaggerated…..

  5. That 9ice, i like high quality people…,
    The prize of some of these Acteresses is told much, therefore, the rate at which they will be patronized will also be low,
    Rmber: When the Price of a commodity is low the quantity demanded will be high but when the Price Is High the quantity demanded will be low
    Be Considerate!!!

  6. According to d law of demand…The Lower the price of the commodity, the higher the demand.. Those that lessen their price’ll surely be hired for more movies compared to d so-called high rank actresses and at d end of the day, the low ranked actresses will surely end up wit higher income. Mind you, They know their worth!!! its just dat they’r using their IQ to tackle d competition thats spreading like wild fire among them, 1mth for genny= mayb 4movies & MJO= 15movies…Calculate it! There are some pple dat dont act for money but rather get the joy they derive from doing wat they av strong passion for…Bottom line, No one is losing here! THEY’RE ALL MAKING COOL CASH!!!
