This involves lighting techniques, camera angles, and advice on how to divide time between fans. For a person who is looking for both money and fame, BIGO LIVE is the apt platform. Aspiring models and actors are switching over to BIGO LIVE from other platforms such as Instagram and YouTube owing to the better payout structure. “Money is the biggest motivator for someone to perform on Bigo,” says Abhishek, who runs a talent agency for BIGO LIVE and gave up his full-time job at Bank of America.
