One of the few people who compose music in Yoruba, his native language, is the singer-songwriter and indigenous hip-hop artist. While signed to Coded Tunes, he released his debut studio album Rapsodi in 2011, and after 10 years in the game, the rapper has acquired some riches.

As a trap king, he has ensured that his music inspires artists such as Naira Marley, who is also a rising sensation with her hit tune Soapy. He has led the path for Yoruba rappers and is currently ranked among the most influential.

If you're worth this much, why not experiment with a fashionable look?

$12 million is his net worth.


Nelson Chibuzor Azubuike, also known as Phyno, is a Nigerian singer. In 2003, he began his music career as a producer. He also dabbled in rapping and rose to prominence as a songwriter, not only in Nigeria but throughout Africa.

Phyno raps and sings in Igbo as an Igbo, and he considers it a symbol of respect for and preservation of his culture. But, without a little Pidgin, what is Nigerian rap? He incorporates Pidgin with his home language rap, which is a skill in itself, and he also employs English.

The Igbo rapper took home the award for Best Collaboration at The Headies Awards in 2012, but as a superstar, you get to do it twice or even three times. He won the same award for the Nigeria Entertainment Ceremonies in 2012, at the same awards.

He is currently the CEO of Penthauze Music, although he has already amassed substantial wealth as the industry's highest paid ambassador and has more endorsement deals than anybody else. Monster, Guinness, Glo, Life Lager Beer, Tom Tom, and NairaBET all have Phyno as a brand ambassador.

And how much more is he going to make as Penthauze Music expands?

He is worth $10 million in net worth.

Tiwa Savage

Tiwa Savage is a songwriter and actor who has been in the industry for quite some time. At the age of 27, she enrolled at Berklee College of Music. In 2012, she published her debut album, which quickly rose to the top of most streaming services' lists.

She's performed alongside 50 Cent, Eminem, Destiny's Child, The Black Eyed Peas, and a slew of other acts both on the continent and beyond. Mary J. Blinge, Kelly Clarkson, Andrea Bocelli, and many other well-known performers have used her vocals.

Her riches are $4.8 million in net worth.

Burna Boy

Burna Boy has cemented his place as Africa's favourite singer by blending his gorgeous vocals with Afro-beats. After his album, African Giant, was rated ten out of ten, he became the most played artist and album. He has experienced an increase in the number of fans from all over the continent.

In his time in the industry, he has made more money. African Giant, on the other hand, has undoubtedly racked up more endorsements.

He's gotten more attention since his relationship with Stefflon Don became public, and the two have more people following them on social media.

He is worth $3.5 million.
