Naija’s richest singers: Whom would you cut a deal with?



Check out the dudes who have made the most money with their voices and looks in Nigeria’s music industry. Looking at them, and what they have achieved so far, which of them would you prefer to cut a business deal with. Or which do you think would be a better as a brand ambassador for Naija?

These are the richest Nigerian musicians as at now:


These guys still straddle the music scene, raking in millions each year for their troubles. The twins; Peter and Paul have their hands in many pies, namely: a Glo deal worth about N140million, investments in real estates like a house in San Francisco worth more than 400 million naira. They are rumoured to own a private jet, landed properties including a hotel in Jos, not to talk of their Square Villa that guzzled up to 3 million dollars to build in Lagos. They have acquired quite a number of exotic cars, and if you wish to have them play at your event, be ready to cough out at least four million naira as their fee.


The Koko master still remains on the rung of the highest-rollers’ ladder. He’s got a mansion too, Koko Mansion in Lagos and $ 1.5 million dollars house in Atlanta. He starred in his own reality show and raked in a million dollars for frolicking with chicks in a house. He’s got an endorsement deal with Globacom and you know that means a lot of millions. He enjoys other endorsement deals like Power Fist energy drink and Virgin Colours etc. He also owns businesses like Koko water, Koko Garri, Koko Mobile. He charges up to five million naira to show his mug at your event.

The Africa Queen crooner is as vast in money as he is rich in making babies. He has a knack for investing in real estate and stocks and has made most of his money from these wise investments. In addition to this, his popular platinum club, Rumour, both in Festac and GRA, Lagos, worth a staggering 400 million naira are raking in cool dow for him daily. He has endorsement deals as expected, and they are from Guinness and Airtel, which earned him not less than 40 million naira. Who says this cool guy is not rolling in it. If you want him strutting his stuff at your event, be ready to dole out real cool bucks.

He is regarded as the King of African R&B. He is a brand ambassador for Etisalat and his handsome mug is the face of Samsung products in West Africa. He also runs Mr Capable education foundation for poor children. This guy charges up to 2.5 million naira per gig and 3 million naira per show. No wonder he looks that good in suit and hat.

Don Jazzy

He is not a don for nothing. He also has a N100 million naira estate in Lagos befitting his status as a don. He was the former CEO of Mo’Hits before he went separate ways with his partner, D’banj. He is the current top honcho at Marvin Records that is very busy churning out promising hit makers. He doesn’t own a known Villa yet, but he is raking in the dough in millions. Do you know Loya Milk paid him a cool 50 million naira in an endorsement deal? This Nigerian don loves black exotic cars and has stuffed his garage with a number of the beauties. He has a black Cadillac Escalade, a black Bentley Continental Flying Spur, a black Rang Rover Sports, a Porsche 911 Carrera, all worth over 65 million naira. The Don used to throw his weight around on stage as a silent monied boss, but now he sings like a canary and scrambles for shows too; and is making more money.

The Holla Boy singer, apart from his childish way of quarrelling with his friends on Twitter, is holding his own in this money ladder as the CEO of Starboy, an affiliation with Disturbing London. He is the highest Pepsi ambassador in Africa and also an ambassador for MTN. He landed an endorsement deal with Guinness and all these come to no less than 80 million naira. The cute guy also knows how to live large, he drives a 14 million naira Porsche Panamera, a 6 million naira Volkswagen convertible and owns a150 million naira home in Lekki.  If you want him in your event, be ready to fork over between 3 and 6 million naira.


He didn’t need to work for his own money because his father already has billions. But then Davido is a living proof that wealthy men’s children can be useful and make their own money. His hit songs have earned him an endorsement from MTN worth 30 million naira. This dude just announced he bought a private jet. Davido is often bedecked with diamond encrusted jewelries; his Ice Box necklace alone is worth 3 million naira, and he drives exotic cars like a 30 million naira Mercedes G55, 6 million naira Chevrolet Camarao, a 2012 Hyundai Sonata, a 2012 Audi Q7 and a couple of other exotic cars. His crib in Lekki is worth a cool 140 million naira.

At the end of the day, I found out this handsome guy not only collects the best of the best in women, like beauty queens but is also worth 2.8 million dollars. This is one musician with eager fans He once sold 5 million copies of his ‘Thankful’ hit song within five days of its release! He is also the owner of 2nite Club in Enugu. He owns a fleet of cars too, which include a 2012 BMW X6, a Land Rover, Mercedes Benz G-Wagon, and LR 3.
