How I made my first N10 million – Toke Makinwa

Toke Makinwa has given insight on how she made her first N10 million in a new episode of her YouTube channel, Toke Moments

The author, OAP, and actress said she can’t remember how she made her first one million naira but she definitely remembers how she made her first ten million naira, which is fiver years ago in 2015. She also noted that she did not make her first one million naira at a go; it was through different gigs that got summed up into one million naira.

In her words:

“Five years ago, I got my first upfront 10 million naira cheque. At that time, I didn’t even think I was worth that much. I remember when the brand contacted my team members to say that they wanted to shoot a commercial first in the previous year. For the commercial year, I think we charged them about 3 million.

After shooting the commercial, I moved on from it. But the MD of the company wanted to have dinner with me afterwards. This was because the commercial had the highest number of views so far. I remember vividly. It was January 15, 2015. The company liked the commercial so they wanted me to be the face of the brand. I thought the pay would be 3.5 million max. But I didn’t know it was a 10 million naira deal.”
