Making the top 30 richest musicians in Nigeria 2021 is no joke I would say. So let’s continue because I know you are itching to see the number one on this list?


One of these days I am going to also write about the richest Naija celebs in movies. but for now, let’s stick with the richest Nigeria artists.


Chidinma Ekile Net Worth $1.25 Million


Chidinma Ekile was born in Lagos State but a full-blooded origin of Imo state.


Her father Mr. Ekile has 7 children of which Chidinma is the 6th born. Here in Africa, we call it 2nd to lastee.


Among musicians like Davido, she graduated with a degree in Sociology at Lagos State University.


She is 28 years old and was born in the year 1991 on May 2nd. Her debut album was released under Spinlet.


Her fame started when she won the 3rd season of MTN project fame West Africa.


and she became the first Nigerian Female to take the number 1 spot on MTV Naija’s top 10 charts.


She is currently worth $1.25 million which is N450,000,000…

Ice Prince Net Worth Worth $1.25 Million


The real name of Ice Prince is Panshak Henri Zamani, a native of Minna Niger State.


He was born on October 30th, 1986 in Minna… He relocated to Jos where he studied at St Murumbu primary school.


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?


Then, Hennessy normally hosts this challenge for urban artists and it was the song Badman that gave him the award.


Zamani’s debut studio album Everybody loves Ice Prince came in 2011. containing singles like Aboki, More, and Gimme dat.


Okay enough of the story


When my team and I did our research totaling all of Ice Prince’s wealth. We found out that he was worth $1.25 million, the same as Chidinma Ekile.

Wande Coal Net Worth $1.10 Million


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




Don’t shout but there is a but… You may want to ask me what that is, right?


He is growing too fat now and I don’t even know if he sees himself anymore.


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’s real name is Oluwatobi Wande O Josipe. He hails from Lagos state.


Wande is an RnB, pop, and Afrobeat 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. Coal graduated with a degree in Curriculum studies.


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


The fallout between Don Jazzy and Dbanj saw the rise of 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 Mo Hits record because it made Wande Coal. who was featured in D’banj Mo hits Rundown/funk you album.


He did songs like why me with the singer before the latter called it quit with Mo hits.


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


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


Here are Wande Coals worth in Naira.


He is currently worth N396,000,000…

Reminisce Net Worth $1.10 Million


One of the veteran rappers in Nigeria is Remilekun Abdulkhalid Safaru. at least that’s his real name as opposed to his stage name Reminisce.


Reminisce was born January 26th, 1981 and he hails from Ogun state West of Nigeria.


Reminisce songs are usually done in Yoruba, English, and Pidgin English.. which quite frankly is supposedly the country’s Lingua Franca.


When his Album Alagba Ibile dropped, fans called him with the name of the album.


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.


and according to my Mentor Dan Lok, he would say master a skill, not just any skill but a high-income skill.


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 mean that’s so dope putting him on such a pedestal.


One that’s particularly deserving I would say.


His first studio album “Book of rap stories” was released in 2012 followed by 2nd Alaga Ibile.


To date, Reminisce is worth $1.10 Million or N396,000,000 same as Wande Coal.

The real name is Abolore Adegbola Akande born in 1980 on January 17th. and better known by his stage name 9ice. 9ice was born in a polygamous of 9 children from 5 wives. In Africa, polygamy has a way of eating into the cultural men’s pocket.


Anyways, Adegbola dropped off the university where he was studying to become a lawyer.


A Liar as many people would love to call it here in Africa and the rest of the world. he had to drop due to funds not being available.


I guess sometimes when you think you have hit the end of the road God has his own way out for you.


Story short, 9ice became a very popular Nigerian Musician. and actually, the first Nigerian Songwriter to release 2 albums in a single calendar year.


In 2012 he made his intention to go into politics.


He lost the 2012 House of Representatives election but was later made special adviser to Oyo state governor in 2013.


His single Gong Aso was wildly received in Nigeria with his GOAT album becoming his best of all time.


Wiki recorded that he is good friends with ID Cabasa of coded Tunes but later fell out.


As part of trying to right some wrongs and built friendship again, Nice did a complete album. dedicated to his friend ID Cabasa and proceedings from the album were given to the music label owner.

Harrysong Net Worth $1 Million 


This is Warri born one of the cities in Nigeria that suffers from over-hype.


but when you visit it there isn’t much to write home about despite having a refinery.


Harrysong worth



Well, Harrysong is from Warri just like many popular musicians and comedians like I Go Die. Oritse Femi, Akpororo, and more.


Harrysong is the stage that the Warri-born singer is known for but his real name is Harrison Tare Okiri.


I like the middle name better because it means Love. don’t ask how I knew, I just know.




He is famed for his tribute to Mandela and that tribute alone won him the award of a most download caller tune. at Headies Award 2013.


Prior to his fame, Harrysong was the lead singer in a group of a live band that performed in nightclubs.


But it was Questionmark Entertainment that signed him while he stayed in Port Harcourt.


A few years later, he met KCEE who introduced him to 5-star music…


However, it was I’m in love that cemented him as a high-performance artist in the industry.


His musical skills came through his mother who was a music director in the church. but she died before she could eat of her son’s wealth…


Daily post reported KCEE and Harrysong having a fall out which led to him leaving the record.


Fast forward to 2019, though he has been on a hiatus no one knows when he will be back. but he still managed to make our SMCE richest Musician in Nigeria 2021 list.


His worth after a concert in Warri back in 2017 saw the singer picked at $1000000 million or N360,000,000.

At the Nigeria Entertainment Award (NEA) the song got nominated for the best collaboration category award.


though he failed to take home the award, however, he’s the only 9ja musician that’s won the Africa Magic viewers choice award twice.


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.


Falz also owns an independent record label Bahd guys record and currently, he is worth $990,000.


Convert this amount to Naira, it’s about N350,000,000 including his cars, houses, record label, and more.

The singer and songwriter released his debut studio album in 2014 with the hit single Gallardo making headway.

Yes, this list fluctuates constantly but Wizkid’s net worth Forbes ranking places well above the likes of Davido.


In the month of November Runtown song, Mad Over you was released. and the song charted 38 at Billboard Twitter track chart.


Gallardo won the award of best collaboration at the 2014 Headies award…


After his contract expiration with Eric Manny Entertainment, Runtown formed his own record label SoundGod music group.


and the singer is not looking to stop any time soon, Runtown is also renowned for his producing skills. and many genres of songs.
