A viral video reveals some women showing off the money they reportedly received for attending Bola Ahmed Tinubu‘s pre-inauguration event.
Online sources led to the conclusion that more than 40 musicians had contracts to perform at the occasion, which took place in Abuja’s MKO Abiola Stadium.
Timaya, Fireboy, Asake, Brymo, and other prominent Nigerian artists performed during the concert.
A few female attendees of the occasion proudly displayed an envelope bearing Bola Tinubu’s image.
Three newly printed 1,000 naira notes were placed inside each of the ladies’ envelopes.
