For Wizkid, according to Adefuwa-Cole:
"The booking must be confirmed before the contract is signed and it must be one business class and 6 economy return tickets from Lagos. For accommodation, it is one penthouse suite, one premium suite and ten single standard rooms. For Per-diem or daily allowance, it is $300 (Artiste), $200 (Manager) and $100 (crew) daily per person.
