Simplified – she earns her reward based on the number of clients her stature as a well known actress brings in.
Laide had arrangement with property outfit, . And it deals in sale and resale of lands, whole buildings and blocks of flats (a piece or whole).
And she took the work seriously, she moves across Radio and Television stations giving out her personal number to boost confidence in her involvement.
And it appears this move is paying off, other movie stars are said to netted similar deals, or in talks to finalise one.
But unlike Laide, colleagues are making bigger demands. They want their services for Lands, or a flat in choice location.
One of the actresses said to have embraced the trade and negotiate it for the desire for a land is Fausat Balogun( Madam Saje).
She currently go about promoting the offerings of property company,Dreamland Garden Estate.
Balogun is trying to get clients to buy land offers of Dreamland Garden in Ikorodu, Lekki and on Lagos Ibadan Expressway.
Sources confirmed the movie people see the new found vocation one of the easiest ways to landed property. And they are falling over themselves to seize the opportunity. They are just leveraging on their popularity to secure their future.
According to an insider ‘ You will be surprise at the numbers of popular actors and actresses that you will see promoting real estate business in weeks to come…many of them are at the negotiating state as we speak’
It is generally believe many of the movie stars strive to live up to public expectations- an aspiration relying solely on returns from Movies doesn’t appear to guarantee.
