There is no doubt that the Nigerian Afrobeats industry is gradually taking over the globe. With the explosion of this music genre, artists have therefore raised their personalities to fit these sums, especially as this remains their surest and most trusted means of income. Information from the CEO of Cole Management Services, Adeshola Adefuwa reveals that Burna Boy tops the list as he charges 1 million dollars and more per show, second by Wizard whose fee is between 800 thousand to 1 million dollars.

Davido and Olamide follow suit with a performance fee of 500 thousand dollars each.

The list continues with Kizz Daniel and Rema who charge 200 thousand dollars each and Tiwa Savage and Asake who charge 100 thousand dollars per performance.

New artists in the Afrobeat industry like Ayra Star and Tems charge 50 thousand dollars each per performance.

Just so you know, this is not all as each performance contract must include business and economy class tickets, accommodation made up of a penthouse suite, premium suite and 10 single standard rooms.

More so, artists get a daily stipend of 300 dollars, 200 dollars for managers and 100 dollars for crew members. Nigerian Afrobeat artists have branded themselves to meet the amounts they charge per performance fee to a standard they can’t compromise.
