Starting with number 5, we have kizz daniel, the no bad song crooner charges a whooping sum of N7m per show. Seven whole million Naira!!!! I know right???? 😩 that’s some people’s annual salary.
At our No 4 spot, we have Olamide Baddo, also known as the most influential artist of the last decade,

No 3 is Burna boy, the African giant charges $60-80k per show, but you have to admit he is worth every penny, his live performance is second to none in the industry and he always gives his fans that special experience that leaves you wanting more.. am I, right ladies ?? 😉
Holding the no 2 spot is OBO!!!! Davido (Dahveedoh) the DMW Ceo charges $80k per show. He is the most followed celebrity in Africa and has a large discography, with a lot of hit songs and international collaboration, his social media pages are sure to keep you constantly entertained.
Finally, at our number 1 spot, we have Wizkid. the cost for our Star boy CEO depends on the location and capacity, but he charges an average of $80-100k per show. He isn’t the most followed artist in Africa, but he is definitely the most popular Afrobeat star in the world.
