BLOG : 'Toyo Baby' How N3,000 led to Juliana Olayode being removed from 'Jenifa's Diary'


Jenifa’s Diary Funke Akindele and Juliana Olayode, who plays Toyo Baby have parted ways.According to TNS, Juliana Olayode ( Toyo Baby ) was cut off from the popular TV series for requesting an increment in pay. Funke Akindele who feels she’s an ingrate being that Olayode rose to stardom through her appearances on the show. Funke Akindele was pissed about it.

It was further revealed to TNS that the producer of the show, Funke Akinkele via her production manager and younger sister pays actors between N3,000 and N150,000 (per episode/season of the show) depending on the role.Funke and Juliana have also unfollowed each other on their social media accounts.



Here’s the message she sent to TNS:

“I got a text message from Sceneone Productions that I had been selected to act on Jenifa’s Diary and I will be part of a party scene. I was so excited that I told my entire family about it. Mind you, it wasn’t my 1st time acting but d feeling of being on Jenifa’s diary was a big deal for me. I was asked to come with 5 different party costumes. Location was Amen Estate, Eleko. After filming with over 30 girls the whole night, Funke came to address us and advice that money shouldn’t be our priorities at this stage; that was when it occurred to me that something  awkward was about to happen….just then, the Production Manager, Mr Osmond whispered something to Funke’s sister, Abimbola & she started paying us each 3K. Can u imagine?, 3K for all night shoot!…on Jenifa’s Diary!… I was so mad, some of us had to turn down the money shaa….couldn’t face my mom to explain to her wat happened the next morning.”



Actors who earn more, Lota Chukwu, Omotunde Lolo 1 and Falz ( who have left the show ) are the highest paid actors who take home N150,000 per season. The rest take home much lesser money.

Stars like Tiwa Savage , Toke Makinwa and others who have had cameo appearances on the show reportedly got between N100,000 and N300,000 for ‘showing face’.
