Wizkid listed as 7th richest African artiste by Forbes

Forbes Africa has released its list of Richest African musicians.

The list was put together using factors such as endorsement value, popularity, show rates, sales, awards, YouTube views, appearance in newspapers, investment, social media presence, influence and others.

Nigerian artistes, Don Jazzy, Wizkid and Davido, are among the top ten richest African musicians.

The top 10 are;


Akon has over 35 million albums sold worldwide. He has won numerous awards including five Grammy Award nominations and has 45 Billboard Hot 100 songs under his belt. He tops the list according to Forbes Africa. 


The multi-award-winning artist’s real name is Nkosinathi Maphumulo. He was born in South Africa’s house music province, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and raised in the Eastern Cape province, where Nelson Mandela hailed from, before moving back to KZN to study music.


Hugh was born in Witbank, east of Johannesburg. He has released more than 43 albums and performed with Marvin Gaye, Dizzy Gillespie, The Byrds, Fela Kuti, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and Miriam Makeba.


Don Jazzy is ranked fourth richest in Africa and also first in Nigeria. Like many artists, his real name is Michael Collins Ajereh, and he started playing music as a child in church before moving to the UK to pursue his career.


Tinashe was a child model by the age of three. The twenty-four-year-old sang before she could talk and made her first appearance in 2000 in the film Cora Unashamed. Her voice also starred in the cartoon feature film The Polar Express alongside Oscar-winning actor, Tom Hanks.


By the age of 10, Jidenna Theodore Mobisson knew he wanted to do music but was afraid to tell his father who wanted him to be an engineer. He is ranked sixth according to Forbes Africa.


Wizkid is arguably currently the uncrowned king of African music. Grammy Award-winning artist, Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz, danced to his songs Ojuelegba and Caro, with Keys posting a video on her Instagram account with the caption, “This song makes me happy”. Kylie Jenner also posted a video of herself dancing to Wizkid’s music on Snapchat.


Davido has claimed a high status in just five years. He said it was people like P-Square and D’Banj who made him believe this was possible. He became famous for his widely acclaimed 2012 debut album “Omo Baba Olowo”. 


Michael Owusu Addo started out as an underground rapper and through the help of Duncan Williams, his former manager, his career was launched. Staying true to his identity, he is a big advocate of Azonto, a Ghanaian genre that is said to have been born out of Kpanlogo, a traditional dance.

His first single off his fourth album, Mewu, sold almost 4,000 copies on the first day of its release in Ghana. He was also the first Ghanaian to win a BET award.


Oliver Tuku Mtukudzi has 65 albums under his belt, more than the legendary Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. It’s a remarkable career stretching back 41 years with songs that have enlivened parties all over the world.

He is ranked 10th richest musician in Africa.

Fan's Racist Morata Chant To Receive Severe Punishment

Chelsea newcomer Alvaro Morata appears to have stolen the hearts of many Chelsea supporters, with the young star already getting his own chant. However, the lyrical content of this song has been deemed discriminatory... can you guess what the consequences of singing it are?
A lifetime ban is what fans caught singing the song will receive, according to English football governing body, the FA. The said chant features an anti-Semitic word used to refer to members of the Jewish community, and was debuted on Saturday, when the young Spaniard inspired Chelsea to a 2-1 victory over Leicester City.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is believed to belong to the Jewish faith, serving as the chairman of the Federation of Jewish Communities in his homeland of Russia. The player in question has also distanced himself from the song, posting a message calling for equality and respect via his Twitter account.
The issue of discrimination seems to shadow football quite closely. Although this particular chant was not aimed at offending the player, other footballers have fallen victim to bigoted behaviour, one of the worst examples being when a banana was thrown at Brazilian defender Dani Alves, during a match. With FIFA launching many respect campaigns aimed at eradicating this issue from football, it seems there is still a long way to go before the beautiful game is truly free of this issue.
Do you think the punishment fits the crime in this case?

Minister of Women Affairs Jummai Alhassan
Aisha Alhassan, Minister of Women Affairs, says she will support former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar if he decides to run for office in 2019.
In a video which went viral on Wednesday, the minister declared support for the former vice-president which has sparked condemnation, particularly among supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Atiku is my godfather even before I joined politics. And again, Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019,” she said.

Jamie Foxx Can't Help But Smile When Squeezed About Katie Holmes

Jamie Foxx couldn't help but smile when he was quizzed about his relationship with Katie Holmes on Wednesday.

After years of speculation, Katie and Baby Driver star Jamie finally confirmed their relationship - as her rumoured five-year public dating 'ban' from ex-husband Tom Cruise came to an end.

Two days after they were pictured taking a romantic stroll on a Malibu beach, Jamie was seen in public for the first time as he went to pick up food from a restaurant in Westlake Village, California.

"Congratulations," a reporter tells the 49-year-old as he makes his way to his silver Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

"What on?" the actor replies coyly.

"On you and Katie. You confirmed that... congratulations," he continues.

While pretending to ignore the comment, Jamie's cheeky grin says it all.

Katie and Tom divorced in June 2012, and while Katie, 38, got full custody of their daughter Suri, 11, her actor ex is believed to have made her agree not to get another boyfriend - at least publicly - until June 2017.

But with the ‘ban’ having expired almost three months ago, it’s happy days for Katie and her (not so) new man, Jamie, 49, who made their public debut strolling hand-in-hand along the beach in Malibu on Monday.

Just Like Noah! Richard Branson Builds Home For Hurricane [Photos]

Virgin boss Richard Branson has survived Hurricane Irma after choosing to stay on his private island.

The billionaire refused to leave his retreat on Necker Island despite the threat of the incoming storm packing winds of 185mph.

He said he would be bunkering down with his team in a concrete wine cellar.

Now his son Sam Branson has confirmed no one was hurt on Necker.

Posting on Instagram he said: "Glad to say that all humans on Necker are ok although a lot of buildings destroyed."

Sam went on to say that his thoughts are with other Caribbean islands who have not fared as well.

"Very concerned for our friends and everyone on the neighbouring islands and people in its path," he added.

"Please don't take this hurricane lightly if it is heading your way.

"If your building is not very solid, do find somewhere safe! Homes can be rebuilt but lives can't."

Earlier, Richard Branson described his preparations for Irma.

"We are expecting to get the full force of the hurricane in around five hours’ time, when we will retreat to a concrete wine cellar under the Great House," Branson wrote on his blog.

"Knowing our wonderful team as I do, I suspect there will be little wine left in the cellar when we all emerge."
The business mogul added that everyone at the estate slept in just two rooms last night as they prepared for the extreme weather.

Daddy Freeze's Take On Beyonce & Family Has Got To Be On Point

No, this is one of the most brilliant criticism from Freeze and very well on point.

I have no respect for Beé, Absolutely none! This man gave up everything to give her a career! He quit his job, sold his jaguar to make her what she is today and because he cheated on her mum, she cut him out?
Beé is staying with her own cheating husband while cutting ties with her father because he cheated on her mum? 😳How ironic!
Look at the Kardashians everyone has rubbed off the success of Kim, Caitlyn Jenner is not even Kim's biological father and look at how far he/she has come with $100 million to his/her name!

Kim is worth $175million, while Khloe is worth $24 million, Kylie $50million, Kendal $18million, Rob $6million, Scott Disick $16million, Kourtney $35million, Kris $60million, Brody Jenner $10million.
Now guess what Beé's only sister is worth? A measly $5million dollars and look at how miserable her father is..😢
The Knowles, unlike the Kardashians are not a power family, they're just a one horse Beyoncé race, nothing but a low down dirty shame, that while the Queen Bee of the beehive soars to dizzying heights, her family wallows in mediocrity......by the way Jay z's album sold platinum in one week, yaaay🙄! ~FRZ

And the 36-year-old singer did the shoot with the minimum of make-up, after launching the #nomakeup campaign last year to encourage self-acceptance.

Actually, this is not only about using makeup or not. It is more about living, being as you feel really comfortable and exploring all of it,' she explained in an accompanying interview for the publication.
