share on:

Harrison “Harrysong” Okiri is one of a number of Nigerian artistes on the fast track to fame and money.

The Beta Pikin singer revealed a couple of things in an interview with The Punch, admitting he charges N1million to write a song.

He said, “Before now we (songwriters) charged between N100, 000 and N2000, 000 for a song. Today I charge as much as 1million to write a song. Truth is, Nigerian artistes have begun to appreciate songwriters. They pay me my money and appreciate me.

“I have written a lot of songs but I don’t talk about them because Nigerian artistes don’t like it when the songwriters take credit for composing songs for them.”

The singer also talked about his lucrative deal with telecoms giant, MTN.

“The proceeds from the caller-back tune is actually worth more than N50m. Truth is, I was paid a lot of money;  you know –  when they say money that can change someone’s life. That’s the value of what I received .

“I can’t reveal the exact amount because we work as a team. So, all the money realised is shared among us. You just want to forget all the years of suffering. It’s not a mere hype because the money is there. The song is everywhere. You go to South-Africa , the girls are crazy about it.”
