Published

You have to cut Nigerian female artistes some slack for dare competing in an industry that is male dominated. The ladies in music account only for a not-so-much percentile of the Nigerian music industry.

The guys maybe taking home good money but hey, the ladies are cutting big paychecks too. And they are equally doing good. The hustle is real for either male or female artistes.

However, this post highlights the top 10 ladies in music taking home the fattest paychecks. The net worth of some of our top female musicians will be analyzed and estimated to the most realistic value. Estimates are made from their performance/appearance fees, endorsements and music sales and tours.
