When you refer someone for a contract, it is left to the person to decide if he should give you something as thanksgiving or not..
In my case, I chose to give my friend who's more like a brother to me now 10%..10% weyn I suppose carry go church.. He wants more even after explaining to him that I paid for services of people who I worked with..

He's threatening fire, brimstone and hell already..

What should I do?

Oga, show appreciation. This is probably the first time his connecting you to a job. More might still be on the way. Don't close the chapter

SO, how many % to show appreciation? where will I get to pay off stuffs that I used? which already covered 60% of the whole sum

You may clarify if its 10% of your net profits or 10% of gross profits.

Besides you two didn't conclude % before he offered the job?

Like someone pointed out, keeping the friendship will be beneficial on the long run. Invite the guy to a meeting with a mutual friend; buy drinks and thank him for the contract and explain situation to him.

Then offer him 5% more if it won't affect you.

You are wrong, remember tomorrow, don't be an ingrate, appreciate your destiny helpers in life so you can go far, hmmm lipsrsealed

...and sorry to say you sound like an ingrate just like most ladies; it is mostly women that exhibit ingratitude by arrogantly forgetting and refusing to reward the men that help them in life because to them ladies, it is their birthright for men to help them become greater in life for free without expecting any reward, and this is one reason most men don't help ladies that aren't their wife, relative or lover

I think you need to clear things with him. Explain what went into the job and talk things over like men.

Someone that can link you to this one can link you to bigger ones. If you feel he's too demanding, tell him you appreciate him but this particular contract didn't bring much revenue for you.

If however, he insists on a greater percentage, give what you can afford. Remember, without him linking you, you won't have gotten that money.

As things stand now, he sees you as being greedy and you see him as being greedy. You guys need to talk.

Let him go to court!
Since there was no legal agreement before the deal, he has a right to demand 99% or more and you
have the right to offer him 0% or less.

But you have to consider future dealings.

Remove cost of job and payment to workers and every form of expense, from your profit margin, give him twenty five percent, that's fair enough, for future purpose

Well. It depends on a lot of things.

How influential was he in you getting the contract??

Without him, would u have gotten the contract or there was no chance of u getting it


I read him saying he asked u to up your game. If u had not upped the game, how much would you have made compared to how much u eventually made after he tipped you off?

Contracts are normally sold in Abuja for 15 to 30%.

Is it a contract you would have bought if you had no means of getting it directly?

Nothing spoils relationship like money issues.

You people didn't discuss the percentage you are to pay him neither did he inflate the contract sum (for his cut) ab initio, you can give him anything that is "right".

But since that is a vague word, depending on the person, you should give him 5-10% of your profit.

Uncle O.de! i'ld call the person as his number is clearly showing on the screen. I would call him to tell him that his so called friend couldnt keep a private convo secret, and also advise him not to do business with you anymore as you have a loud mouth and cant keep a simple misunderstanding secret. Rubbish
