Chinwetalu Agu, a veteran Nollywood actor, has disclosed how he rejected down a N10 million offer from millionaire business mogul Mike Adenuga to play a movie role.
According to Naija News, the actor said this in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.
Agu stated that he had never seen N1 million before when Adenuga made the offer, but he insisted on N20 million for the task.
The iconic actor further said that he threatened to leave the office and return to Enugu since the millionaire businessman refused to pay the sum he wanted.
When he stood up to walk away, Adenuga took him seriously and handed him the N20 million.
“Chief Mike Adenuga said, what I have for you in this contract is N10 million. I have not seen N1 million before when he was pricing me N10 million but I refused. I said, if it’s not N20 million, forget it.
“He insisted, I insisted. So, I pretend to rise up and said, give me money to go back to Enugu. If there’s any available flight, book it for me let me just quietly go back.
“They regarded me to now being serious when I rose up. Chief Mike Adenuga said ‘sit down.’ He ordered them to bring documents for signing. They brought and I signed.
“From that moment uhuru dance started. I did it diplomatically in the office. I didn’t want them to know that N20m was a big deal [to me]. But it was the most wonderful thing [to me] at the moment.”
