Fortune may have smiled on them. But they’ve worked their socks off! With their abilities, doggedness and ingenuity, these artistes have worked their way to the top.
They’re the top 5 highest paid in the industry…
NO 5 – DAVIDO
He may have caused a scene at the Babcock Convocation, but it’s not hard to imagine. At just 21 years of age, Davido is charting a new course. He has proven wrong those critics who attributed his success to the financial muscle of his father, by pointing to his abilities instead. And with the MTV double awards last weekend, he may be scoring more points. However, one certainty about Davido is that he knows how to get your body moving. And he does it with such ease. Apart from managing his own HKN label, the Aye crooner pockets nothing less than N3 million per show. And there are few artistes in Nigeria that commands that much.
NO 4 – WIZKID
With Starboy, Wizkid has emerged stronger and even better. Arguably one of the finest in the industry, Wizkid readily laces any beat into a hit. Just when you think he may struggle to equal his earlier success, he proves you wrong. Not once. But again and again. Little wonder he collects nothing less than N4million per show.
NO 3 -TUFACE
His studio album, Grass to Grace may have rubbed off on him. It is debatable though, but Tuface remains the industry’s finest vocalist. A popular demand, even among fellow artistes, he remains a force to reckon with. Fondly dubbed TUBABA for his amazing vocals, Tuface smiles home with N5 million, just for an appearance.
NO 2- D’BANJ
He may have split with Don Jazzy, but he’s not finished. No. Not yet. He has embraced the agriculture campaign but music remains his first love. The Koko singer remains one of the highly valued artistes, and does not perform for anything below N6million.
Their new single, Testimony could not have echoed their success any better. From the skinny twins that greeted us in the wave of 2001 to the celebrated duo that now stand before Kings, these brothers are the biggest! Any show they’re billed to perform is usually sold out. And they don’t come cheap. No. Per show, the twins pocket N15 million.
