April 6, 2013 – Top Ten Richest African Musicians In 2013: P-Square, 2Face Idibia, D’banj & Banky W Top Wealthiest African Artistes List

Nigerian entertainers once more proved their worth as trail blazers on the continent as Answers Africa listed Tuface, Banky W, D’Banj and P-Square among Africa’s ten wealthiest artistes.

Banky W was listed number 9, 2Face Idibia on 7th position, D’Banj came 3rd while P-Square was placed 2nd after Senegalese singer, Youssou N’Dour, who topped the list.

About their earnings, Africa Answers wrote that:P-Square makes more than $150,000 per show. Their Squareville, which is located at Ikeja is worth $3 million and as part of their brand support, they also have a 3- year deal with Globacom; a Nigerian telecommunications company as brand ambassadors where they are paid a million dollars a year.

D’banj, they said, made $1 million dollars when he was paid by a TV station to star on his own reality show called the Koko Mansion. His Atlanta crib was estimated to worth $1.5 million and he reportedly charges on the upside of $10,0000 per show currently.

Tuface, who just recently painted the city of Dubai red with his exquisite and exclusive wedding, reportedly has a vast investment in real estate across Nigeria, earns around $50k to $80k per show and owns a night club in Nigeria just to name a few.

For Banky W, Answers Africa wrote: “His talent in music has made him one of the richest African musicians. He has been a brand ambassador for Estisalat mobile in Nigeria and is currently the face for Samsung products in the west African nation.

Out of his generous heart, Banky W has started off Mr capable foundation; an education charity organisation with the aim to aid in the education of children from poor families.”

Other Africans on the list are Joseph Mayanja popularly known by his stage name as Joe Chameleon or Jose Chameleone from Uganda (10), South African singer/Trumpeter Hugh Masekela (8), Fally Ipupa from DR Congo (6), Salif Keita from Mali (5), Kofi Olomide also from DR Congo (4) and Senegalese singer/percussionist, Youssou N’Dour at the top of the exclusive list.
