Anyone who knows Wizkid knows that he's one of Africa's most iconic artistes.

The Afro-pop star whom recently celebrated his 30th birthday is best known for some of his hit songs including "Ojuelegba", "fever", and "Daddy yo" et.c

And as we all know, a celebrity's networth is more or less affiliated with how big a star they are. 

In other words the bigger an artiste is or the more internationally they are known, the higher the amount the get paid to perform in shows or even run their own shows.

Most people began to associate Wizkid with international stardom the moment they heard him on Beyonce's track "Brown skin girl" in her 2019 Lion King Album.

But the truth is this Nigerian-born talented artiste had long gone international before then.

As a matter of fact Wizkid as far back as a year before the Beyonce collaboration had been paid a whopping 50 million Rupees to perform at a royal wedding in India.

According to Africafactshub, the 30-year old star joined the list of world's highest paid celebrities after the major deal of 50 million Indian rupees which translates to over $650,000 dollars and a whopping 245 Million naira.

Wizkid according to Forbes was ranked 5th in their list of top 10 richest/bankable African artistes.

He is also the first Nigerian artiste to reach a million Twitter followers.

Not bad for a young man who just a decade ago was seeking the attention of Nigerian record-label owner Banky W to get signed.

He's since come a long way through a combination of skills, dedication and major talent.
