The Richest Nigerian musicians and their net worth is something everyone talks about nowadays. Nigerian artistes are truly smiling to the bank with a lot of endorsements deals and rich companies clamoring for their signature.  Don Jazzy and D’prince have been unveiled as new MTN ambassadors while Burna Boy has been unveiled as the lastest Globacom telecommunication Ambassador. I must say it is a big achievement for Burna Boy seeing he is quite fresh to the Nigerian music scene. Some will say money is not everything, but it is hard to denial that money is powerful. The reason we all go to work is so we can at least make some money – I mean some serious money. Nigerian artiste 9ice once said in street credibility ‘’Omo na turn by turn, pray papa God make e reach your turn’’.
