Ibrahim Ayo Balogun who is popularly known as Wizkid has currently surpassed the likes of Davido to emerge as the highest-paid stage performer in the Afrobeat curriculum.

The Nigerian singer and songwriter, Davido also has earned his peak as one of the Afrobeat best stage performers for the past fewer years and there is no doubt about his qualities.

Burna Boy

40-50 million

From all views and commends, Burna Boy is currently the Nigerian Afrobeat number one stage performer and this has quite made his price tag heavy.

They push each other in various aspects and this has infused their qualities into what every single artist in Africa dreams to attain. They are in no doubt the three highest paid, performers and Afrobeat musicians in Africa.
