In time past Nigerian parents rebuked their wards for dare dreaming about becoming musicians. You dare not harbor such thoughts talk more of telling your parents about it. You’ll get a good dose of the cane and rebuke. Fast forward to the present, music is probably one sure way to earn a good fortune for yourself. ‘Music dey pay pass some white collar jobs these days’ and we all know these.

Some of of our artistes have been able to beat others to top the list of the richest Nigerian artistes. These values are estimated net worth (a realistic measure of wealth)  and hence used to rank these artistes.
If your favorite is not on the list, there can only be one solution. They have to double their efforts to appear on the list next time.

Ekperipapa 1 of Bayelsa Timaya is one of Nigeria’s to ten richest musicians. The dancehall king net worth comes from heavy booking fees, brand endorsement and not so much from music sales. Timaya is brand ambassador to Glo and Hennessy X. O. Cognac. His estimated net worth N1.1 Billion Naira
