To shoot music video now costs N30 million – Basketmouth laments

Nigerian comedian, singer and comic actor, Basketmouth has expressed worry over the soaring prices of shooting music videos in the country.

The veteran comic act lamented over how the industry standard fee has risen from 7 – 7.5 million Naira to about 27 – 30 million Naira now.

Basketmouth shared his reservations about the production fee while being interviewed on The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos.

Basketmouth shoot music video 30m

According to him, the price hike was why he decided to do a holdup video for ‘Party’, the lead track from his upcoming album, ‘Uburu’, instead of slashing over N25 million to shoot a standard video.

He said; “The visual we have for my song ‘Party’ with Peruzzi is not an official video. It’s just like a holdup because I did not know that the economy has hit us that bad. 2 years ago, I used to make videos for 7 – 7.5 million Naira. Now, it is 27 – 30 million Naira.

“I’m an Igbo man so the first thing I thought about was, ‘Okay Bright, if you’re spending N25m on visuals, it’s for uptick, right? Then do a holdup video, do something for uptick as well.’”
