Access Bank Paid 1 Million Dollars For Mariah Carey’s Perfomance After Firing 200 Workers

Mariah Carey’s controversial perfomance in Nigeria that was hosted by Access Bank on Saturday, December 14, 2013 for it’s outgoing Managing Director Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede has been hit by reports that the bank layed off 200 workers recently but paid the American beauty a million dollars.

mariahperf1 (1)Sources say Aig-Imoukhuede, a big fan of Mariah Carey was the one who wanted the US star to perform at the gig at all cost.

Carey was paid and flown into the country along with her live band. A day after her trip to the country, she was accused by a US website of ‘performing for money men in Nigeria’.

Her visit and performance here upset more than a few, especially after it emerged the bank which has disengaged thousands of workers since 2012, had paid her generously.

Since February 2013, Access Bank has been in court with about 1,500 former employees of the bank who instituted a case against the bank which they claim ‘illegally withheld, manipulated and mismanaged’ their gratuities and severance packages.

The party was described by those who attended as very extravagant and lavish as food and almost every kind of drinks were in abundance.
