For years now, the 31-year-old star has been playing in a league of his own. He has enjoyed immense success in his career and has championed a revolution that has seen afro-pop become something of global recognition.
In the process, he has turned himself into a cash king too. Wizkid has established himself as one of the (if not the) highest-paid artists in Africa.
The money he makes off of streaming numbers alone is gargantuan when you consider the fact that all he does is make music and smoke all day.
What we have here is a list of his booking fee at different points in time, from between 2012 and now.
Of course, these are estimates from different sources and while the numbers may not be true in all circumstances, they reflect the range in which Wizkid gets paid from time to time.
2022: N80 million ($192,000)
2019: N50 million ($120,000)
2018: N25-30 million ($60,000-$72,000)
2017: N10 million ($24K)
2015: N7-9 million
2013: N5 million
2012: N1 million
There is no doubt that only Wizkid can manage to pull off these figures on a regular and still run his own shows consistently. The guy must be raking in billions every year. It’s hard to compete with that grace!
