How I made N50k from my first show after fourth day in Lagos – Shallipopi

Up-and-coming singer, Shallipopi opens up on his first ever show while struggling to get accommodation after relocating to Lagos.

In a conversation with the Zero Conditions podcast, the music sensation delved into his experiences within the music industry.

Shedding light on the challenges he faced in the early stages of his career and the triumphs, Shallipopi revealed that most people he depended on in Lagos turned him down.

Speaking on his first show performance in Port Harcourt, Shallipopi received a payment of 50,000 Naira, a sum he embraced with enthusiasm, given that it marked the beginning of his live musical engagements.

Additionally, he noted that the organizers covered his travel expenses, signifying a humble yet pivotal initiation into the realm of music.

Despite the relatively modest compensation, Shallipopi expressed contentment and appreciation, underscoring his commitment to music beyond financial considerations.

“When I got to Lagos, I was looking for who to stay with; I wasn’t lost but couldn’t find anyone. Eventually, I found somebody and told them I would only stay for four days; I dey try corner them. After four days, I got a show in Port Harcourt for N50K. I never meet any distribution company, I was doing everything with my phone,” he said in part.
