Nigerian Rapper, Vector has called out Modeling agencies who underpay their Models despite being paid well by clients.
Vector in an Instagram Live on the 26th of January shared a story of how he was chatting with some elderly models during a music shoot and discovered from one of them that they were paid 9,000 Naira.
According to the rapper, the agents of these models were paid 30,000 Naira by the director, and yet the models weren’t paid half of the money.
The rapper complained about how the Government isn’t the only problem we have but also people who are opportune to be in a place of authority.
He shared the pictures of the women and commended them for how they performed during the shoot.
In another Tweet, he shared a screenshot of the message from one of the women who claimed the agent blacklisted her because of the revelation.
“The agent has started to threaten the poor elderly woman he represents. Her daughter said that they called for a blacklist of her mom from jobs simply because she told us they paid her 9k our of 30k (that the director said they paid). Hope i can get her on live tomorrow.”
