Rapper Olamide reportedly Nigeria’s highest paid artiste
By Rita Chioma,
Famous Nigerian artiste manager, Alex Ozone, has declared that YBNL helmsman, Olamide, aka Badoo, is currently the highest paid Nigerian artiste when it comes to performing at international shows.
Speaking on the amount Nigerian artistes charge as performance fee for shows in the UK and United States, Alex who wields 17-years wealth of experience in artiste management, exporting Nigerian music abroad through his management company, 03 Media, argued that though Davido, Wizkid, Tekno, Kiss Daniel and others are worth a fortune, Olamide is the most expensive.
“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 the whole world Olamide has the highest rate”, he declared.
