Now come let’s find out some of the things that he spends all that cash on as one of the most awarded musicians in Ghana.
Stonebwoy Cars and Houses
As a guy who is fascinated by how the world works, I listen to titbits of financial news, politics, and economics just to have an idea of what my world is like.
One of the people I follow in the financial space is Robert Kiyosaki, an amazing old man by the way with loads of knowledge and experience in the financial space.
The reason I follow him is to have an idea of how money really works and do you know what he always says?
He would say; why should you work for money when the feds are printing it faster than you can earn.
If you want to make money, work for yourself and that’s exactly what Stonebwoy is doing with his music.
how he is spending some of that money is anybody’s guess, right? I mean he is one of the best musicians in Ghana already so he is rich.
Wait, there is more!
Here are some of the luxuries that Stonebwoy spends his fortune on.
He has lots of cars that cost gigantic amounts of dollars and he bought himself a house from the above net worth.
List of Stonebwoy cars:
- Mercedes Benz E350
- Porsche Cayenne
- Porsche Panamera
- Hyundai Sonata
- Toyota Venza
- Toyota Camery
I purposely skipped the prices so I can make it available to you with each car specification.
Here we go:
Mercedes Benz E350: Every year brand new cars are released into the market and for some celebs, this could mean a new car.
For others, it is just another year of these companies milking us by making slight modifications to previous models.
Well, Stonebwoy may have such a thought but that has not stopped him from purchasing the Mercedes Benz E350.
According to CarandDrive, this one ride cost an estimated $55,000.
It has a turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with either rear- or all-wheel drive.
That’s a nice beautiful ride right there giving you all the comfort you deserve in a car, right?
but this is just one of his numerous cars so let’s get on to the next car, shall we?
Porsche Cayenne: Porsche is one of the most alluring brands of cars in the world.
If you own one, you could easily feel like a million and Stonebwoy is certainly welcoming of the thought.
So how much does Stonebwoy Cayenne cost?
Since I have no idea which year he bought his Porsche Cayenne, I would give you a range of figures starting from the entry price to the maximum price.
The Porsche Cayenne starts from a whopping $67,000 to as high as $130,000 dollars depending on the model.
The Cayenne S offers an even zestier setup courtesy of its 434-hp twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6. It bolts to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds.
Porsche Panamera: Livingstone also owns a Porsche Panamera which starts at a cost price of $88,000 and max at $180,000.
If you want to feel like a demi-god flying on the sky then this car is one that gives such a feeling.
The Porsche Panamera features a base rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. It has a 325-hp turbocharged 2.6-liter V-6 engine which is capable of accelerating to 60 mph in 3.2 secs.
Hyundai Sonata: This is one of the lowly priced cars that the singer owns.
but for most Ghanaians having one of this could be the only thing that differentiates you from an average Ghanaian.
So how much does this cost? The Hyundai Sonata costs a whopping sum of $25,000 as goes as high as $30,000.
It accelerates to 60 mph in less than 8 secs which is still pretty good when you compare to others on this list.
Toyota Venza: Toyota is one of the brands of cars most used in Nigeria and some other parts of Africa.
This is because it’s affordable and the parts are readily available.
This car cost the singer the sum of $33,000.
Its setup comprises a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and three electric motors which together develop 219 horsepower.
All-wheel drive is standard for this car and it accelerates to 60 mph in 7.6-seconds.
Now let’s look at his house or houses, shall we?
Stonebwoy owns a home in Trasacco Valley one of the places occupied by top stars in Ghana.
As a matter of fact, rumor has it that his house is close to an ex Ghanaian football player.
The house when viewed from the outside is massive but wait till you see the beauty inside.
It has 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a living room, a car park and a pool to cool off during the summer when everywhere is hot.
The house is estimated to cost the singer the sum of $450,000 which when converted to Cedis is 2,602,389.
Now that you have an idea of how he spent some of that cash, let’s take look at his sources of income.
What Are Stonebwoy Sources Of Income
Stonebwoy is one of the richest celebrities in Ghana today no doubt, right?
but how did he create all this cash flow you may wonder, at least for me I was curious and that drove me to look into his source of wealth.
I have written about the likes of Akon who are some of the richest singers in the world and do you know what I noticed?
These guys created their money through fame and diversified their sources of income.
If you ask Jeff Bezos who is one of the richest billionaires in the world today, he would tell you one thing and that’s that you should diversify your income source.
So how did Stonebwoy do it? well, the simple answer is that he has a diverse source of income.
And below is a list of most if not all his income sources.
- Album and singles
- Social media
- YouTube partnership program
- Endorsement deals
All the above income sources have done one thing and that’s helped to skyrocket Stonebwoy net worth Forbes.
Now let me touch on the above bullet points to give it context so you can have a perfect understanding.
Album and Singles
When I wrote about the best musicians in Africa, my surprise was that Stonebwoy did not make the top 30 list.
His counterpart Sarkodie and Shatta Wale however made the list which was a bit surprising.
but then the criteria were strictly laid out as such why he didn’t make a top 30 list despite the success of all his album and songs.
You see, Stonebwoy’s first source of income comes from his music.
This includes releasing singles like Activate featuring Nigeria singer Davido.
This one song has more than 3 million views on YouTube alone which is massive for an artist from Ghana.
Stonebwoy also makes money from his album streams and the singer currently has more than 2 albums out already.
You may be wondering how he gets paid, right?
The simple answer is that he gets paid through music streaming platforms like Apple, Spotify, Boomplay, and Audiomack.
but since this post is about Forbes Stonebwoy net worth and not how to make money with your music, I will be happy to refer you to this source here for you to find out more details.
Sponsored Social Media Posts
Another way Livingstone makes money is through sponsored posts on social media.
If you don’t know what that means then read this article on how to make money through sponsored posts.
Basically, the idea is to promote other company products to your audience and you get paid.
Stonebwoy has more than 2 million followers on Instagram and his engagement per post is high.
If you use the social media engagement calculator, you could easily have an idea of how much a user can generate from sponsored posts.
When I wrote this detailed article on how to become a popular Tiktok influencer, I found that one could easily make $100 even from 30K Tiktok followers.
As for Stonebwoy, the least he makes from sponsored posts could be as high as $10,000 and not less than $1500.
The fastest way musicians make their money is through shows, you know.
Take for example, in 2022, Burnaboy is scheduled to perform at the 02 arenas.
This one performance could make Burnaboy more than £50,000.
However, prices for shows within your country would be different.
This is just one side, what if I flip it and it’s Stonebwoy that’s hosting the show?
Well, he would make money from ticket sales which could go for as high as $1000 for VIPs and regular $10.
All the above figures are estimated figures just to give you an idea of what Stonebwoy could earn from shows.
YouTube Partnership Program
One additional way through which he has been able to diversify his wealth is through the YouTube partnership program.
What this means is that whenever Stonebwoy uploads a video and the video gets viewed by his fans, he gets paid by YT.
Although there are several factors that affect how much YouTube pays content creators, the singer makes quite a lot from here.
We have metrics such as RPM, CPM, engagement, and country type, all factoring into how YT pays content creators.
Finally, the last way through which Livingstone makes money is from endorsement deals.
Endorsement deals usually involve brands asking you to be the face of their product or services.
Stonebwoy has endorsement deals with some big companies in Ghana with Tecno Ghana being up there.
He is a Tecno brand ambassador and what this means is there is a contract agreed upon for a certain year for which Stonebwoy would be the face of Tecno in Ghana.
He also has an endorsement deal with Energy Drink Big Boss. The energy drink enlisted Stonebwoy as its brand ambassador to help spread the word about Big Boss energy drink.
All the above sources of income have helped to double Stonebwoy’s net worth in 2022 from a mere $1.5 million in 2019 to $2.5 million in 2021.
I promised you I was going to talk about his bio, right?
Well, let’s dive into that so you and I can find out more details about him.
The word fame is used for a very popular person whether in business, politics, music, sports or what have you.
but there is usually a life before fame and a lot of people forget what that is like after stardom.
This is because being famous comes with many good perks even though it also has its downsides.
