Is Wizkid Actually Richer Than President Muhammad Buhari - Check Out Worth

The above topic or question is rhetorical because its impossible in some countries for pop stars to be richer than their president, but let's be realistic if a celebrity like Wizkid also known as Starboy comes to your area and the president is there as well and you are giving an opportunity to take a selfie with just one of them, who will you take it with?

Guess its gonna be Wizkid especially for the ladies but the case is different here, we are talking about net worth and not fame and popularity.

Muhammadu Buhari is the president of Nigeria since 2015. He is also a retired major general in the Nigerian Army. Also, he was once the head of state from 31st December 1983 to 27th August 1985.

President Muhammadu Buhari was born on the 17th of December 1942 in a Fulani family in Daura area of Katsina State. His parents’ names are Adamu and Zulaihat. Due to his father passing away when he was still small, he was raised by his mother in a very large family where he was the 23rd child.

He attended nursery and primary school in his homeland Daura before proceeding to the Katsina Model school in 1953. He moved to Katsina Provincial Secondary school and obtained his certificate from 1956 to 1961.

Major-General Muhammadu Buhari is the 15th President of Nigeria from 29th May till date.

He has served as Nigeria’s head of state from 31st December 1983 to 27 August 1985 as a result of a successful military coup d’etat.

Having retired from the Army he has unsuccessfully run for the office of the president three times 2003, 2007 and 2011. In December 2014, he became the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress for March 2015 Elections.

Muhammadu Buhari defeated then-incumbent president Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

At the 2019 General Elections, president Muhammadu Buhari went for a second term in office under the APC party. Although he has not been sworn in as president, he emerged victorious in the 2019 General Elections.

Muhammadu Buhari married his first wife Safinatu Buhari who became the First Lady from December 1983 to August 1985.

Together the marriage produced five children: Zulaihat named in memory of his mother, Fatima, Musa (deceased), Hadiza and Safinatu Jr.

Muhammadu Buhari married his second wife Aisha Buhari, the current First Lady of Nigeria. Together they have five children namely Aisha, Halima, Yusuf, Zarah, and Amina.

Net worth

President Muhammadu Buhari’s net worth is estimated at $110 million. However, at the time of his swearing-in, he declared his assets together with the vice-president and running mate Prof Osinbanjo.

He owned 30 million Naira with the Union Bank.

5 homes and two mud houses in Daura

Two undeveloped plots of land in Kano and Port Harcourt.

An Orchard and a Ranch farm. He had 270 cattle, 25 sheep five horses, a variety of birds, a number of economic trees.

He has some cars. Two of them were bought from his savings while others came from the Federal Government. Some others were donated by friends and well-wishers after his car was damaged by a Boko Haram bomb attack on his convoy July 2014.

He also has shares in Berger Paints, Union Bank, Skye Bank.


With all these information already gathered about Buhari and Wizkid, it is very clear than Buhari is way richer than Wizkid with a huge gap because Wizkid net worth says $12 million dollars while Buhari net worth says $115 million dollars.

But do you think Wizkid can make it up to Buhari net worth this year 2020?
