  12. If u hv a problem with the list go bash ur head for wall…wiz,sakodie,ice are all ballin and richer than ur whole families and future generations combined

  13. As long as @DonJazzy is included no big deal

  25. Fake news……..where is davido…who b wizkid

  26. olabode thomas

  27. shout out to forbes

  28. This list is thrilling… I can't dispute it cuz guud reasons ave been put together to make up a list like dis e.g endorsement, sales, show rates etc… Davido is gat no endorsement xcept frm Mtn's which I guess has even expired and he drew away attention frm his album sale by his singles which overshadowed the album. Forbes list is the most respected and most acceptable in the world, I think Nigerians should respect it too… And Yes!!! Wizkid might be richer than 2baba, cuz he is been attending more shows in recent years till present more than any Nigerian artiste.

  29. 9ja peepz won't seize 2 amaze me……lotta only went 2 schl bt no brainz!have u ever heard of forbes b4?itz not 1 of ur politicized 9ja org.dey have carried out dier research n u r ere displayin stupidity!dt list is objective enuf!y 2much talk sef…y nt

  36. make una no call davido coz em dey chop daddy thank u!!

  37. this list is certainly rubbuish, how can u say dat wizkid is richer dan 2baba. abii becos him no gree tell una d amount wey dey him acct. u guys nbow feel dat wizkid is richer make una use una head oo

  38. I'm okay with the list,there is no partiality there

  41. Lolz…if u'll don't agree wif d listings, Den I see no reason why u should agree when forbes tells u dat dangote is d richest man in africa or dat bill gate is d richest. What y'all need to understand is d dudes don't just wake up 1 morning n decide who they feel suits d position of what and what….d fact dat ur favorite artist name isn't there doesn't mean he isn't rich. It simply means he aint as rich as those whose names were written. Well, as far as I am concerned, I'll place my bets on channel O and forbes. I trust dem much more dan I trust my fellow nigerian brothers and their sentiments…###LWKMFH.

  42. Mehn d list is kul,forbes go ahead nd kip gettin us posted joor…sm peepz dnt undstnd wt forbes meant by endorsement value,popularity show rates,awards,youyube views nd sales….lol

Wizkid is richer than 2face…how?….ice prince is richer dan davido….loool…a big smh…u all 4got davido has an endorsement with mtn…worth millions…gobe alone had millions of views on youtube…and u'all are talking of spending his fathers money…as far as am concerned dis list is wack…sarkodie is even stated here dat he his richer dan davido….how 4 christ sake?

Pls Fuck d fake ass musicians, dis re d 1s Making mulla.PS

  105. "The list shows the African artistes making the most money in Africa" why you people calling Wale? How much is he(WALE) making in Africa!? Don't just comment because there's a comment box. Read between lines. As for me the list is cool. For those saying "Davido dey chop em papa money" wtf! If you were in his shoes wouldn't you do same,he's even doing something for himself and you all hating on his success. We all have the same 24 hours, do something wise with your time and stop beefing on people's success. #Peace
