Diddy Is Forbes’ “Cash King” For the 7th Time in A Row

Forbes Top Five Richest Hiphop Artists
Forbes Top Five Richest Hiphop Artists

Forbes has released its annual list of the five wealthiest hip hop artists on the planet. The top 5 artists haven’t changed from last year’s list, though Jay Z has supplanted Dr. Dre in the #2 spot. Diddy and Hov are neck and neck in the race for rap’s first billionaire.
Forbes explained their methodology:

“In order to complete the Forbes Five list, we follow the same procedures used to calculate our list of the world’s billionaires: looking at past earnings, valuing current holdings, leafing through financial documents and talking to analysts, attorneys, managers, other industry players and even some of the moguls themselves to find the details.”

Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has topped Forbes’ list of the five richest rappers in the world for a seventh year in a row.
The 47-year-old is worth an estimated $820 million thanks to his investments and lucrative deals with Diageo’s Ciroc, TV network Revolt, alkaline water brand Aquahydrate, and tequila firm DeLeon.
Jay Z follows closely behind with an estimated net worth of $810 million, thanks in part to his ownership of streaming service Tidal, Roc Nation entertainment company, and Armand de Brignac champagne.
Dr. Dre takes the third spot with $740 million, while Bryan “Birdman” Williams comes in a distant fourth with $110 million.

Drake is fifth with $90 million

So there you have it. The top 5 shot callers in hip hop. 

1. Diddy ($820 million)
2. Jay Z ($810 million)
3. Dr. Dre ($740 million)
4. Birdman ($110 million)
5. Drake ($90 million)

Having tons of social media followers may automatically make you into a target for ad companies and companies looking for ways to reach more people about their products and services.
Instagram is a strong social media platform because of its ease of use and less ambiguous User interface and even though Selena Gomez has the most followers, Beyonce‘s social capital on Instagram is worth more making her the most powerful person on the social network.

Beyonce recieves over $1 million for a single post on Instagram. According to D’Marie Analytics – she achieved a greater influence after her pregnancy announcement. This post even set a record for the most-liked after having over 10.8 million likes triumphing over Gomez’s top post reaching 6.6 million likes.

What makes her account so unique is that she only posts content of herself, and doesn’t follow anyone else – not even family members. Jokingly yet realistically, she could cover three college tuitions with one selfie on Instagram!

Top 10 RICHEST Musicians In Nigeria And Their Net Worth – (2017)

In time past Nigerian parents rebuked their wards for dare dreaming about becoming musicians. You dare not harbor such thoughts talk more of telling your parents about it. You’ll get a good dose of the cane and rebuke.
Fast forward to the present, music is probably one sure way to earn a good fortune for yourself. ‘Music dey pay pass some white collar jobs these days’ and we all know these.

Some of of our artistes have been able to beat others to top the list of the richest Nigerian artistes. These values are estimated net worth (a realistic measure of wealth) and hence used to rank these artistes.

If your favorite is not on the list, there can only be one solution. They have to double their efforts to appear on the list next time.


Ekperipapa 1 of Bayelsa Timaya is one of Nigeria’s to ten richest musicians. The dancehall king net worth comes from heavy booking fees, brand endorsement and not so much from music sales. Timaya is brand ambassador to Glo and Hennessy X. O. Cognac. His estimated net worth N1.1 Billion Naira


Iyanya who hails from Cross River State hit stardom after he won the maiden edition of MTN project fame. After that first shot at fame subsided, he bounced back with one of the biggest hit song in his career ‘Kukere’. Iyanya has been brand ambassador to MTN, Solo phones, Dunes Nigeria and Cross River State tourism ambassador. Iyanya’s estimated net worth is put at N 1.8 Billion Naira.

Banky W

Nigeria’s own king of R&B Banky W has a good share of the money generated in the music industry. A mentor to Wizkid, Banky is one of the longest serving brand ambassador for Samsung Africa.

Star boy! Wizkid who has been a big sensation on the Nigerian music scene cuts big checks yo! He is one artiste that doesn’t run short of endorsement deals, from MTN, to Glo, Pepsi etc. Wizkid who is now a bona-fide Sony Music act charges heavy fees to perform at shows. Wizkid is CEO of StarBoy Worldwide, his estimated net worth is N2.8 Billion Naira. His Sony Music deal excluded.


One time for OBO – Omo Baba Olowo). Since his entry into the Nigerian music industry, Davido has always shown he has loads of money, especially when you put in mind his Nigerian billionaire father. Well, besides his father’s mulla Davido rakes in millions for himself monthly. He is well known for his ostentatious lifestyle, a Sony Music act as well as Wizkid. Davido’s estimated net worth is N2.9 Billion Naira.


2face who now prefers to be addressed as 2Baba is the most prominent of the defunct music group Plantashun Boyz. 2Baba has a music career spanning over 20 years and he has a lot of money in the bank to show for it. Aside his normal booking fees and numerous endorsements, 2Baba is a real estate investor. He owns the popular Rumours Night Club situated in Festac, Victoria Island and Ikeja.

The ace music producer is valued at an estimated net worth of N6.5 Billion Naira.


Sitting on the top of the list is Africa’s most successful singing duo Psquare. The singers who are from Anambra State Nigeria, are highest earning Nigerian musicians. Booking Psquare for a show definitely cost a lot as the twin charge the highest fee. Much of their money comes from booking fees, mouth watering endorsement deals, music sales and other investments.

Meet The First Nigeria Female Pilot – Captain Chinyere Kalu

Meet The First Nigeria Female Pilot - Captain Chinyere Kalu
Meet The First Nigeria Female Pilot – Captain Chinyere Kalu
Captain Chinyere Kalu was born in 1970. She is the first female pilot in Nigeria. A woman grew up in a very supportive big family. She decided to begin her career in Aviation because of her adventurous aunt. Her aunt was well famous for traveling abroad a lot of times. They had the matriarch in their family, so her aunt approved Chinyere’s decision and so a lady began her career into aviation.

The first female Nigerian pilot is Chinyere Kalu, who studied in Anglican Girls Grammar School, which is in Yaba, in Lagos. Then she was trained as a Commercial and Private Pilot. She also took a few aviation courses in Zaria, UK, and the USA.

Chinyere Kalu always wanted to travel the world and have an adventurous lifestyle. So she decided to take up the truly male dominated and very difficult career in order to become the first female pilot in Nigeria.

Nigeria first female fighter pilot is married to Mr. Okoli Kali and has children. 6 years ago President Goodluck Jonathan proclaimed her the Chief Executive and Rector of Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (which is mostly known as NCAT) – which is the biggest aviation training institute in the whole continent. 

Before that, Chinyere Kalu was leading the College’s Flying School. There Chinyere Kalu worked as a contractual instructor.


Everything You Should Know About Rachel Dolezal

Everything You Should Know About Rachel Dolezal
Everything You Should Know About Rachel Dolezal
Rachel Dolezal has been the topic of discussion for a little over 48 hours.

The 37-year-old president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP came under question for pretending to be a black woman, which was brought to national attention when her parents outed her as a “Caucasian woman of European descent.” Dolezal’s mis-identity wasn’t something that just happened in 2015 though. According to her parents, she’s been disguising herself as a black woman dating back nine years ago, following the family’s adoption of four African-American children.

To have a clear understanding to squash your confusion, here are some facts you should know about the occurrence.

1.) Rachel Dolezal engaged in a career of civil rights activism, serving as a professor of Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University to becoming the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP. [Power Line]

2.) She first garnered the media’s attention when she claimed she was the victim of nine hate crimes because of the color of her skin. [Coeur d’Alene Press]

3.) She previously received her Masters in Fine Arts from Howard University in 2002. An anonymous administrator at the university told Jezebel that Dolezal’s thesis on the inner workings of a black man’s mind was just as controversial as her name is in the news now. “This was ten years ago but I still remember one was a three dimensional piece of a man was being consumed by a fire all the way into the ground,” he said. “The rest of her work were two dimensional paintings.” She also has an art blog. [Jezebel]

4.) Her parents admitted she’s been this way for years. “Rachel has wanted to be somebody she’s not. She’s chosen not to just be herself, but to represent herself as an African American woman or a bi-racial person and that’s simply not true,” her mother, Ruthanne Dolezal said. [The Guardian]

5.) Also, her adoptive brother Ezra Dolezal recalls his sister’s physical change when she attended Howard University for her Master’s Degree. He stated Rachel asked him not to “blow my cover” about her appearance. [The Spokesman-Review]
6.) A photo of Rachel as a young girl also surfaced, which stirred up even more controversy to her claim. [USA Today]

7.) When KXLY4’s Jeff Humphrey brought up Dolezal’s ethnicity during an interview, she swiftly dismissed the rest of the Q&A after Humphrey asked, “Are your parents white?” [KXLY]

8.) The NAACP later issued a statement on the matter, sticking by Dolezal’s side. “One’s racial identity is not a qualifying criteria or disqualifying standard for NAACP leadership. The NAACP Alaska-Oregon-Washington State Conference stands behind Ms. Dolezal’s advocacy record. In every corner of this country, the NAACP remains committed to securing political, educational, and economic justice for all people, and we encourage Americans of all stripes to become members and serve as leaders in our organization.” [NAACP]
9.) Dolezal recently spoke out about her ethnicity being questioned by the audience and her parents, stating, ‘I don’t give two sh*ts what you guys think,’ she said unabashedly. “You’re so far done and out of my life.” [Mirror]

10.) The Spokane Police department also revealed that any cases involving Dolezal’s hate crime claims have been suspended. “If new information comes to light, we can investigate that information,” the department tweeted. [Boise Weekly]
