YouTube pays $0.8 to $10 per 1000 views in Nigeria. On average, each 1000 views generates $1 in Nigeria. But the income is dependent on the niche and source of traffic. If the channel’s videos are watched from USA, Canada,UK and other European countries, the income can go as high as $10,but if 100% of traffic is from Nigeria, then income will be in the neighborhood of $1.
The niche of the videos also determines the amount of money YouTube pays you. Here are some of the highest paying niches:

When starting a channel, please consider one of the highest paying niches above. If your niche is not among those listed above, you may experience low income.
Another factor that highly determines the income is the percentage of the viewers that see the adverts in the videos. In order to increase the percentage and perhaps make it 100%, ensure the videos are of high quality, long enough, entertaining, informative and able to exhaustively answer queries by the viewers. In between the videos there should be 1-3 adverts.
To get enough views to earn reasonable income, gather as many subscribers as possible. If you manage 100,000 subscribers and above, then you’re assured each of your videos will get at least 10,000 views. With 10,000 views, you’re assured of earning more than $15.
