P-Square Tops List Of Richest Musicians

Published

on

P-Square has
unarguably emerged the richest musician in Nigeria. This is according to a publication in the internet. Music has been paying heavily in Nigeria for the past ten years as an average Nigerian youth sees music as the quickest means to amass wealth and acquire fame, especially when a good number of artistes  have risen from grass to grace over the  years, enjoying wealth that can only be imagined by average people.
In music, the popularity of the artistes determine their worth. One of the means of knowing how popular a musician or music is, is by checking out its ‘You tube slat,’ if you have a great stat on your ‘You Tube’ then, you are a great artiste making good money.
The musician’s net worth does not necessarily mean the amount of money he or she has in his bank account, but how much you are worth as in assets base, your works, achievements, and popularity. Album or music sells is not the only means musicians make money, they make more money through “You Tube” partnership, royalties, ring tones, concerts, sponsorships, endorsements and appearances.
These were factored into this rating to come out with this robust, time tested ranking of the richest musicians in Nigeria. It is dynamic as it changes from time to time. One who is on this ranking today may not be here tomorrow.
The following are the names of the richest artistes in Nigeria posted in the social media on 19th of June, 2015. Though there are different views on this rating, this list is the most detailed and accurate you can find anywhere in the internet. The ratings are from the 20th position to the first position.

Nigerian Female Celebrities Are Not Prostitutes -Movie Producer

Published

on

Nigerian movie producer, Samuel Olatunji, popularly known as Bigsam has debunked the idea that successful women in the entertainment industry earn their money through questionable means.
The Public Relations expert took to his Instagram page yesterday to condemn Nollywood actress, Nnaji Charity, who in her Instagram stories wrote that “being a female celebrity in Nigeria is more like an advanced prostitution.”(sic)
“To say her post is uncharitable to women is stating the obvious. What is more uncharitable is the fact that she is a woman (that, I believe because these days, you never can tell), “ the producer said.
He added, “What you are implying is that all these successful female celebrities, both in entertainment and outside entertainment are prostitutes, got to where they are, or are maintaining what they are by prostitution? Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Naming celebrities such as Linda Ikeji, Toyin Abraham, Funke Akindele-Bello, and Ini Edo, the Dear Affy producer attested to lucrative means by which several female celebrities he has worked with, make their money.
He said, “There was a time someone called me to say Linda Ikeji must be doing fraud or advanced prostitution to make the kind of money she has, that year, Linda was charging 50k per post (now it is 150k). I asked the person to open the blog and we did counting of sponsored post for that day as at 6pm, Linda has done about 20 sponsored posts. That year, Linda was raking in about 2 million daily. Before Covid and after, Toyin Abraham was making over 5 million monthly.
“About 10 years ago, we struck a major deal for Ini Edo, my first cut in the money was over 1.5m. Till date, Ini is making legitimate money quietly and in quick succession to have warranted talk that she’s the richest actress in Nigeria. About two or three years ago, Funke Akindele Bello made over 1 million USD from just one of her projects.”(sic)
Also mentioning the likes of Kemi Adetiba, Uche Jumbo, and Lizzy Jay, Bigsam said, “If you see all these women living life and living well, don’t let your limited brain deceive you that they only make it by gracing beds of powerful men (some of these men actually live off them).”
“Women are doing well and it is possible for the upcoming one to do better without turning to prostitution,” he continued.
He further encouraged ladies to ignore the claims by Nnaji as “she doesn’t know what she’s saying.”
