A couple of days after her performance that at Eko Hotel & Suites; i have received reports that American singer Mary J Blige got paid an unbelievable amount for just her one night visit.

Insiders are saying that telecommunications giant, Etisalat paid the R&B singer half a million dollars for her performance at the Sisters with soul concert.

The cheapest fee for entrance to the show was N15, 000 and the crowd moderation intended by the organisers was achieved. Although the popular Expo Center, Eko Hotel and Suites still appeared empty, this was due to the oversize hall for the elitist show, featuring American Queen of ‘Hip-hop soul’; Mary J. Blige who stormed Lagos last Friday for the Etisalat’s sponsored ‘Sisters with Soul’ concert.

The multiple-award winner and multi-platinum selling artiste took the audience back in time, bringing out her most loved songs from the 90s up until her most recent releases.

The show, which enjoyed the partnership of Kilimanjaro Entertainment, also paraded some of Nigeria’s top female artistes including Seyi Shay, Eva Alordiah, Niyola, Emma Nyra and Ms. Jaie, all performing their hit tracks to the excitement of the audience.

After her two-hour performance, Mary J. Blige went on twitter, thanking her fans: “Good morning Lagos. Thank U so much 4 the warm welcome, love & support. I had a great time with U! Sorry I had to leave so quickly. Love. MJB”.

Over 120,000 people sign petition for the UK government to sanction the Nigerian Government over alleged human right abuses

As at 8:31 a.m on Wednesday October 21, 123, 222 people had signed the petition. The petition titled “Implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials”.

It reads;
