How to calculate the net worth of Top 50 Richest musician in Nigeria

 

When you and I say net worth what does it mean exactly?

 

I like how Wikipedia defined it and here is how it was defined.

 

Let’s use you for this example:

 

Net worth is the measure of what you have left after you subtract all the debt that you owe.

 

Now here’s how Wikipedia defines it:

 

So, therefore, if I am to calculate your net worth now, it will be your assets e.g houses, cars, real estate, your valuables. such as gold, diamond, and silver minus everything that you owe.

 

This will be what you are worth.

 

Here is a simple calculation.

 

Let’s say you are 200,000,000 million US dollars and you owe 100,000,000 million dollars.

 

You Net worth= $200,000,000

 

What you owe= $100,000,000

 

So, therefore,

 

Net worth – what you owe

 

200,000,000 – 100,000,000= 100,000,0000.

 

Total net worth after debt= 100,000,000.

 

I guess now you understand right?

 

That’s the simplest way I think you can calculate a net worth without sounding like Mathematician.

 

What is the criteria to be on the list of Top 50 Richest musician in Nigeria

 

The criteria that qualify you to be on this list is your assets.

 

When Shoutmeceleb calculate what you are currently worth by estimating your assets, then I and my team is able to determine. what you are worth that’s assuming you are a musician of course.

 

It’s a top 50 list, and I know in other to bring you the net worth of each these Nigerian musicians. I have to calculate and estimate what each one is worth from the definition above.

 

Yes, it gets tiring but it’s worth it since my goal is to give an insane experience. Just make sure to stick to the end okay?

 

But wait there is more!

 

Do you that this list even answers questions like Who is the richest musician in Nigeria top 20.

 

I mean if you get a top 50 list then, by all means, a top 20 list was made also.

 

So, without further ado let’s look at Nigeria richest musician and their net worth.

 

How much is the Top 50 Richest musician in Nigeria worth?

 

I mean I would trade anything in the world to be on that list you know.

 

If I could sit at home and while on my laptop I could just make $100,000,000 do you think I am wealthy enough?

 

The answer is no because if I convert a million dollar to Naira at the current rate of Naira. that’s like 360,000,000 million Naira.

 

I still wouldn’t be close to where the big boys are right?

 

Yeah, I thought you would agree too!

 

Now, let’s start with the top Top 30 Richest musician in Nigeria and their net worth.

 

Top 40 Richest musician in Nigeria

 

Making a name for yourself in an industry that’s full of talented young stars can be very challenging right?

 

Well, that is exactly true but the irony is life is about pushing the limits and not pushing papers. 

 

I remember these were the exact words said by my father who happened to be a strong believer. of doing your best for the universe will help you in the end.

Ice Prince

Ice Prince

From most of the stories of Naija musicians who hailed from Jos. the name St Murumbu comes up very frequently.

It makes you wonder if that’s the only school in the whole of the state right?

But then again St Murumbu probably has a quality that other schools do not have. and every man loves quality whether rich or poor.

Ice Prince is a hip hop singer, artist, and Songwriter.

His rise to stardom came when he did the single Oleku featuring Brymo… The song still resonates with lots of Nigerians to date.

In 2015, he became the vice president of Chocolate City. but in 2016 he ditched the label for his solo career and released Jos to the world.

Jos to the world is his first studio album after he left Chocolate City.

Lest I forgot, did you know that he won the Hennessy Artistry club award?

Wande Coal Worth $1.10 million

I have to admit that Wande Coal has been super amazing. most especially because of his unique style of singing.

But…

Don’t shout but there is a but…

You may want to ask me what that but is right?

He is growing too fat now and I don’t even know if he sees himself anymore. Obesity is most a cause of neglecting how fit you should look all in the name of enjoyment.

Wande Coal

Well, that’s his own headache and who am I to criticize right?

Just thought he looked way better when he didn’t have the whole weight on.

Having said that, Wande Coal real name is Oluwatobi Wande O Josipe. He hails from Lagos state.

Wande is an RnB, pop and Afro beat singer and Songwriter.

I really don’t understand why the majority of these singers are being born in October…

… Wande Coal was born on October 18th, 1985 the same month Nigeria got her independence in 1960.

I need to tell my brother who wants to become a musician to better change his DOB now.

Probably if he changes it to October, perhaps better Endorsement deals might just rake in. because I really don’t understand what’s with 9ja musicians and October.

Growing up in Lagos means he studied at the University of Lagos. There Coal graduated with a degree in Curriculum studies.

Also, Wande attended Federal government college in Lagos before applying for Unilag.

The fall out between Don Jazzy and Dbanj saw the latter form Mavin records. to which Wande was signed in 2012 but in 2013, the “Baby face” crooner decided to call it quits.

It’s good to remember the days of Mohits record because it made Wande Coal. who was featured in Dbanj Mo hits Rundown/funk you album.

He did songs like why me with the singer before the latter called Mohits quit.

Josipe debut album Mushin to Mohits received recognition in the US and UK…. but it was after quiting Mavin records he dropped the single “Wanted”.

From early 2000 till date, Wande coal is worth an estimated $1.10 million.

Here is Wande Coals worth in Naira.

Reminisce studied purchasing and supply at Kwara state polytechnic and graduated with a degree.

After his degree considering he already loved music from birth, he decided to invest his time mastering the Act.

For me, Reminisce mastered his craft and guess what happened?

His 3rd studio album Baba Hafusa was featured at number 12 on Billboard chart world music category. and till date, he is the only African to achieve such glorious feet.

It was the way Time Magazine hyped that got me happy…

Time Magazine said:

Reminisce is one of the 7 rappers in the world that you should meet… I

One that’s particularly deserving I would say.

One of the things I love about Falz is the accent. the fact that he’s both an actor and singer goes to show his prowess in being ranked as one of the high players in the industry.

I told a friend recently that being among the top 50 richest Nigerian musicians is no joke.

especially because it’s not just making it there but staying there is tougher than anything I know.

My friend’s response was nothing is ever easy, what matters is consistency. and investing a huge part of your money in some higher-return investment.

According to Wikipedia, Small doctor dropped out of secondary school to record music. which was his passion.

I remember while growing up, mom and dad wanted me to go to school but the truth. was that I never really liked school.

You may ask me why right?

Well, at that age school felt like a burden and as I grew I labeled it overrated. because all it did was create people that were more frustrated.

I won’t go into that but one of these days I will do my own biography here, so you too can read about me.

Tip:  I will include every journey that got me here in the first place. From an aspiring footballer to a freelance writer, an Internet marker and of course an SEO practitioner.

Flavour of Nabania

Flavour

Flavour’s real name is Chinedu Okoli and popular also known by his stage name Nabania.

 

Flavour’s songs have melody so sweet that it can literally make you feel like you are experiencing his own life.

 

I like to call him the King of trance because of the melody he brings to his songs.

 

According to Wikipedia, he is a multi-talented instrumentalist, a songwriter, singer, and performer.

 

That’s like four titles capped in one, Okoli.

 

Flavour lNabania is origin of Anambra state in Eastern Nigeria. but his place of birth is in Enugu state.

 

Since you and I are more concentrated on how much he is worth. I would suggest you head over to Google to learn more about his early beginning.

 

I mean every artist is got a story right up to when they become popular and it becomes a memory to relish.

 

Flavour is worth $8.5 million but let’s convert this figure to Naira which is the currency.

 

$8500000 x 360= N3.060 billion

M.I worth

No one would tip people from the North part of Nigeria to be music lovers. this is because they majorly deal on cattle rearing and farming.

 

But he is the first of his kind that proved Nigerian’s wrong. You can say he rose and made a name for himself as a showman of Chocolate City.

 

The parents of M.I and his younger brother Jesse Jagz were Christians. Guess its not the first time you have heard about a North man being a Christian right?

 

Just saying his parents are Christian is just putting it mildly. His father and mother are pastors.

 

At some point, he is the best rapper in Naija dragging such feet with the likes of Olamide.

Phyno Fino

Phyno Fino

A child born in 1986 is like 33 years now right?

 

Phyno is 33 years old now and he started his musical career as a producer. before gradually start singing.

 

Phyno is here to stay, I mean he made last 2018 list and now he is also in the 2019 list

 

The real name of Phyno is Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike and history have it. that the name was given to him by a High school friend.

 

He is an amazing Nigeria rapper and also among one of the best in the country. The one thing find lovely about Phenomenon is how he raps in Igbo.

 

If you listen to him, you will find a man that loves his culture so well, that he shows it to the world. and his latest feature of Davido in Ride For You is the magic.

 

I like how he was described on Wiki’s page. It said Phyno is a bit everything. to Eastern Nigeria men of Igbo as Olamide is to the Western Nigeria men of the Yoruba clan.

 

But wait here is the magic

 

Did you know that despite him singing in the Igbo dialect, he weaves in a couple of Pidgin English. and English into his songs?

 

Well, if you know anything about Pidgin English then I suggest you read about it here.

Iyanya’s Worth $1.5 million

 

Fortune smiled upon Iyanya during the first edition of Project Fame West Africa. and since then this guy is just been flying.

 

Although I didn’t really hear much of him back in 2018. and frankly, am surprised myself that he made my list of top fifty richest musicians in Nigeria.

Iyanya

Iyanya

Like they say an artist that do not perform dies. I hope he drops something welcoming as he did with Kukere which was his hit single.

 

Let’s dig into some details

 

If there’s any possibility that you may be asking what is Iyanya real name? then you are in a bit of luck.

 

Iyanya real name is Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk and he is 33 years old now.

 

He was born on the 31st of October 1986 which is the month Nigeria had her Independence.

 

Being born in Palm Street Calabar meant his career started in the church.

 

Guess what I am thinking?

 

Why the hell is every single one of their career starting from the church?

 

Like Omawunmi sang “If you ask me na who I go ask”

 

His brother died shortly after his mom and dad passed to the world beyond. It must have been devastating for him I imagine.

 

I remember when my mom died, it was really devastating for me in the first 10 years.

 

I could not get over it but then I had to master the art of living with it. and making it be my guide to succeed.

 

Now I am a man that’s so happy but kept the memories alive. My advice if you haven’t been making memories, start now.

 

Iyanya debut studio album My Story came in 2011 with hit singles like Kukere winning him. the Headies award in 2013.

 

But wait there’s more

 

He Co-Founded Made Men Music Group with Ubi Franklin but later left to sign for Mavin records.

 

Under Mavin I have not seen him drop any song… not even a single, I mean what is he even thinking right?

 

With a younger artist like Rema coming up if he doesn’t drop something soon. he is going to fade away like a bad memory.

 

So how much is Iyanya worth?

 

He is worth $1.5 million or N540,000,000

 

Here is some key takeaway for you!
