It will stun Nigerian music enthusiasts that David ‘Davido’ Adeleke despite the regular showcase of his opulent lifestyle, isn’t the highest paid artiste in Nigeria.
Seasoned artiste manager, Alex Ozone has revealed the highest paid artiste in Nigeria.
Ozone said that YBNL boss, Olamide Adedeji, popularly known as Olamide or Badoo is currently the highest paid in terms of international shows.
Ozone said this in a chat with Showtime while commenting on fees Nigerian artistes charge for shows in the United Kingdom and United States.
The manager, who has over 17-years experience in artiste management, revealed that though Davido, Wizkid, Tekno, Kiss Daniel and others are worth a fortune, Olamide is the most expensive.
According to him, “The business doesn’t have a fixed price, it depends on the artiste; I cannot tell you how much each of them is worth.
“But like I told you, I have worked with Wizkid, Tekno, Oritsefemi, Patoranking, Davido, Terry G, Kiss Daniel, YQ, Skales, Olamide, and Timaya.
“They are all good, they know their worth. But in Nigeria, Olamide has the highest rate.”
