Nigerian Popular radio personality, Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi also knows as OAP Gbemi has recently taken to her social media page to advise her fellow creatives to learn to say ”No” to family members/close friends who have the habit of not paying for work done.
Making this announcement, The Radio personality shared her experience with a close associate whom she helped promote her flyer that later offered to pay a far lesser price when she wanted another promotion.
Her Tweet Reads;
Dear creatives, do not hesitate to say “NO” to family members/family friends who don’t want to pay for your work. When I was mc’ing weddings a few yrs ago – some aunties /uncles will say “Come & MC your cousin’s wedding” but wouldn’t want to pay. I’m not around Ma.
Makeup artists /photographers /artistes suffer this too.
One said, “Please help me post this flyer on your IG page .” I helped her the first time. The second time, she came again & said “Please help me post this on your page and send your Acct details – let me send you 20k for the weekend “
