Nigeria’s indigenous and Afro-pop singer, Flavour, reportedly bagged a $3 million deal with Amazon prime for his biopic. A biopic is a film that tells the story of someone’s life. While it was also defined by Wikipedia as a film dramatising the life of a particular person, typically a public or historical figure.
The news of Flavour’s new feat became an issue of controversy on social media platforms in the course of the week as some of his fans tweeted that the singer has become the first artiste in Nigeria to receive such a huge amount from Amazon.
According to Flavour’s fans, he received an advance payment for his biopic on Amazon Prime Video. This simply means that Flavour will be working with Amazon for 4 years as stipulated in the contract he signed with the brand.
This feat makes Flavour the first African to be paid $3 million for a film with Amazon. It also breaks the record set by Wizkid becoming the first African artiste to be paid $1 million to headline the Rolling Loud Music Festival.
While Flavour has kept mute about his new feat, it is believed that the singer opted to keep the development private as he hardly makes his music success a public affair.
A source close to the singer said “Flavour will not make noise about this feat because he’s a private person who likes to keep his success private.”
