The Astonishing Rise of Wizkid’s Net Worth in 2023
With an estimated net worth of $26 million, Wizkid, the first Nigerian to sell out the 02 Arena in London for three consecutive nights, is the fourth-richest musician in Nigeria in 2023. Since the release of his first song, “Holla at Your Boy,” in 2010, Wizkid has smashed several national and international music records.
A deeper examination of Wizkid’s progression over the years reveals that his ascent onto this list of the richest musicians in Nigeria was inevitable.
Wizkid owns two mansions: one in Surulere, Nigeria, worth approximately 13 million NGN, and the other in Los Angeles, California. A BMW X6 crossover, a Porsche Panamera, a Lamborghini Urus, and a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG are among Wizkid’s automotive collections.
“Essence,” from Wizkid’s highly praised 2020 album “Made in Lagos,” is the first Nigerian song in history to rank on the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Global 200.
The song was nominated for “Best Global Music Performance” at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards and selected as the best song of 2021 by the US magazine Rolling Stone.
In addition to being one of the richest musicians in Nigeria in 2023, Wizkid is one of the country’s most streamed artistes, as described by Apple Music, which dubbed him “a representative for not only the sounds of Lagos, but Afrobeats as a whole.”
