The word 'charge' is the major problem here. You are not paying him, you are honouring God's grace upon his life. Charge is a big word. Honorarium is a better word and is solely at the host's discretion.
However, if Dunsin comes to your program with his full squad, nobody go tell you to arrange very fat envelope for am because he carries grace, and value."

Mercy Chinwo accused of charging millions
