WATCH: ‘Betty Akeredolu Dumped Me After I Served For 7 Years On N45k Monthly Pay’ – Makeup Artist Cries Out

Folashade Anu, a beauty specialist, claims she was paid N45,000 per month for seven years as a cosmetics artist for former Ondo first lady, Betty Akeredolu.

In a recent interview with Olujimi Adekanle, a news presenter in Ondo, Anu revealed that she sometimes served as a personal assistant to the wife of the late Rotimi Akeredolu, former Ondo governor.

The makeup artist claimed to be paid N50,000 per month, but 10% of her salary was automatically taken as a contribution to Betty’s Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria (BRECAN), which she formed.

“I worked for Her Excellency (Mrs Betty Akeredolu) for over seven years. When I was going, she did not give me anything,” said Anu as she broke down in tears.

“I worked with her for seven years as her makeup artist. I used to make her hair and do her pedicure when she was still making her hair.

“I was paid N50,000 then, but I usually gave back N5,000 to BRECAN. They would have deducted the N5,000 before the salary was paid. They called it ‘give back to BRECAN’.

“Another N100 was also usually deducted as charges.”

The makeup artist said she stopped working for Betty after her husband was buried.

Anu claimed that after Akeredolu’s burial, she solicited help from the former first lady but Betty refused, adding “I was no longer in office”.

“I texted Betty Akeredolu that I needed help and that she was my last hope, that she should render help to me, but she said there was no help she could render because she was now out of the office,” she added.

“I usually reach out to her to help me. She once told me that since I have a passport, she would take me out of the country, but till now, nothing.”
