If you have been searching helplessly for the richest female Nigerian artistes and how they made their fortune, your days of fruitless search are over as you are now in a place where you will finally learn the info that has eluded you for too long. These artistes, who are a female representation of the richest Nigerian artistes, were chosen based on the following standards: YouTube views, endorsement deals and shows. Check these set of artistes below.
1. Tiwa Savage
Mavin records diva, Tiwa Savage, is arguably the richest female artiste in Nigeria. Immediately after she was delivered of her son Jamil, two years ago, Tiwa and her new-born baby were made the faces of diapers maker, Pampers. The endorsement deal, definitely, must have had her smiling to the bank. After then, she got back to work and started, once again, pleasuring us with hits we once enjoyed before she went on ‘maternity leave’. In 2017, she ended up serving us her Sugarcane EP which sold beyond the borders of Africa. The video for one of the tracks on the said EP, Malo, as I write, has attracted more than twenty million views on YouTube- she celebrated this not long ago on her Instagram page. That alone earned her close to hundred thousand pounds not to mention other monster videos as Get It Now and Get It Now Remix ft. Omarion. Don’t let us forget she’s been ambassador for global cola drink company, Pepsi, for five years now. Her latest singles, Tiwa’s Vibe and Labalaba are also doing greatly on top music streaming platforms.
2. Yemi Alade
Effyzzie baby popularly known by the stage name Yemi Alade, is another YouTube goddess- she makes a lot of money from YouTube because of the intimidating, high number of views her videos perpetually get. For instance, the video for one of her latest hit singles, Bum Bum, which was released less than two months ago now has more than nine million views on YouTube. Her energy also gets her incessant invitations to shows within Nigeria and Africa and beyond. Asides those, her Black Magic album did so well on iTunes Chart Nigeria; and few days ago, the How I Feel singer announced her new eye-watering endorsement deal with international luxury champagne maker, Belaire.
3. Seyi Shay
Afro-Calypso queen, Seyi Shay, makes the list of the richest Nigerian artistes ( female) because she has been, like Tiwa Savage, Pepsi ambassador for many years. Her videos are doing good on YouTube and she attends shows frequently too. Her fresh Electric Package EP ( Vol. 1) is also a huge success as it was bought by tens of thousands of fans.
X3M Music girl Simi made so much money from her then iTunes Nigeria chart-topping album, Simisola, which she released in the tail end of 2017. On top of that, the videos for the tracks on the album have done incredibly well on YouTube- from Joromi to Owambe, Complete Me and Gone For Good. Check out these mind-blowing videos on YouTube and be thrilled by the number of views they have attracted. Additionally, she has an endorsement deal with giant telecommunications company Etisalat’s Cloud9 Music.
