If you are following the Nigerian music scene closely, you have probably noticed the chemistry between Wizkid and Tiwa Savage. But have you ever been curious about which one of them is richer? Today, let’s take a closer look at both artistes’ net worth. For some reason, nobody has ever asked who is richer: Tiwa Savage or Wizkid. The latter’s wealth has been compared to the riches of Olamide, Davido and even Justin Bieber, but never of his female colleagues. We are here to right that wrong. Thus, let’s talk about the net worth of both musicians and see who wins!
Wizkid net worth
It is no secret that our Starboy has gotten far in this world. At the age of 27, this Nigerian star is topping the worldwide music charts and selling out arenas. This obviously brings in a lot of money. In fact, it brings in so much that it is actually hard to calculate the exact number. Different sources state different numbers, but they all agree that Wizkid net worth is between 12 and 14 million US dollars.
If after reading the previous sentence you have decided to drop out of school to pursue a career in music, then hold your horses. Wizkid music is not the only thing that brings him money. Of course, thanks to his popularity, his albums are selling like hotcakes and his concerts gather hundreds or even thousands of people. However, there are several other revenue streams that have made Wizkid one of the wealthiest musicians in the whole of Africa.
For example, his 2012 contract with Pepsi alone brought him whopping $350,000. Apart from that, Starboy has many other endorsement deals, including MTN, Glo and Guinness.
In addition to that, Wizkid partnered with Nike on their Nigerian football jersey collection, where he even had his own custom №9 jersey that said ‘Starboy’ on the back. Now, we do not know how much he earned from either of these events, but D&G and Nike do not play when it comes to giving back to their models.
Looking at Wizkid’s property it is easy to see where a big portion of the money goes. It is said that he owns a mansion in Lagos that cost him around 13 million naira, along with real estate in America.
