One of Nigeria’s top musicians known as WizKid was here in Kenya last weekend for a performance. He is known for hit songs such as Tease Me, Show You The Money, The Matter, Caro and many others. He has earned international awards such as BET Award and MOBO Award. In addition to this he has got so many nominations including an MTV Europe Music Awards nomination. In 2013, Forbes ranked him 5th in the Top 10 Richest/Bankable African Artist.
With such talent WizKid obviously charges a lot of money for a performance and also for a collaboration. If you want him in your song, you will have to part with $51,ooo. Yeah, that is huge amount of money for an African artist. In Kenya shillings its roughly Ksh4.5 million. As for him, he doesn’t pay anybody to be in his songs.
