Born Innocent Idibia, the former member of the band, Plantashun Boyz, is said to be among the richest artistes in the industry. With two platinum records in his kitty, Tuface is speculated to be worth about N550m.
It comes as no surprise as he has had endorsement deals with brands like Guinness, which earned him N20m and Airtel, which earned him N22m. He was also said to have earned N30m from the producers of Phat Girls movie, and charges between N4m and N5m for shows.
As one of the most decorated actresses in Africa, Omotola scored a bygone when she made it to TIME magazine’s 2013 edition of the “100 Most Influential People in the World”. Her TV reality series, “Omotola: The Real Me” generated a landmark viewership on M-NET’s Africa Magic when it debuted, and the mother-of-four is now warming up for international break. The star actress and UN ambassador recently sealed a multi-million naira deal. The singer is now the face of BO-16, a hair relaxer and hair care company- Ghandour cosmetics Limited. Nobody knows what Ghandour is paying Omotola but with her gleeful declaration online “ Then I saw them, they will be my hair’s only companion for a couple of years- yeah, they paid that much” said so much. She was also the Face of Hollandia Milk.
Nollywood queen Genevieve Nnaji is smiling all the way to the bank with her latest endorsement deal with telecommunication company, Etisalat Nigeria.
The actress was unveiled as the company’s newest brand ambassador alongside actor Hakeem Kae-Kazim. Genevieve’s deal is alleged to be worth N100 Million and she will be the face of Etisalat’s brand new mobile package “Easy Flex”.This isn’t Genevieve’s first endorsement deal, although it’s her first major deal.
In the past she had been the face of cosmetics brand MUD Cosmetics & Coscharis Motors as the face of luxury SUV “Range Rover Evoque” in Nigeria. She was also recently endorsed by Amstel alongside Chelsea footballer, Mikel Obi.
Also known as Mr. Capable, Banky W has proved to Nigerians that he is capable of being among the richest entertainers in the industry.
He makes the bulk of his wealth from gigs. He is said to charge between N2.5m and N3m per show and performs three to four times in a week.
He is a brand ambassador of Etisalat, one of Nigeria’s telecommunications giants, where he featured in their popular commercial, 0809ja for life. He also featured in Coca Cola-Nigeria’s World Cup theme song and Microsoft’s Anti-cyber Crime Initiative. He is also hooked up with Samsung Mobile.
Former Mo’Hits artiste, Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo, popularly known as D’Banj, signed a new endorsement deal with Globacom Nigeria.
This is D’Banj’s second endorsement deal with the telecommunications company; the first ended in 2010 with the artiste’s refusal to extend his 2008 two-year contract.
Although the exact amount agreed on was not made public, there is speculation that it is a jaw dropping sum and that it is most likely the priciest endorsement signing in 2013. The singer who has a penchant for making money, has a deal running into millions with Chris Aire, as the face of his watches and another one with UAC Foods.
He collects between N5m and N7m as performance fee for local gigs. His first deal with Glo was said to have worth more than N70m while speculations are rife that his current deal with the telecom giant is in the region of N120m.
The singing and dancing duo, Peter and Paul Okoye, are unarguably among the richest in the industry. They won the KORA award for Best Africa Artiste 2010. The award came with $1m (N150m). Shortly after, the duo got an endorsement deal with Globacom telecommunications worth about N240m for four years. Their American tour of seven cities earned them a whopping $1m (N150m). Their new deal is worth much more.
Since his highly successful 2012 monster hit single ‘Kukere’, it has been one hit after another, one award after another and one endorsement contract after another for the once impoverished singer.
The pop singer recently closed a deal reportedly worth N35 million with mobile phone manufacturing company, SOLO Mobile. According to his publicist, Wildflower PR, the deal was iced with a brand new 2014 Prado SUV.
Earlier in May 2013, the 27 year-old singer was lucky enough to have been included in MTN’s swoop of some of the major players in the music industry, becoming one of the company’s highest paid brand ambassadors in a N40 million deal.
Zinox Technologies Limited, manufacturer of Nigeria’s first internationally certified branded computers was looking for a face to represent its brand, guess who quickly came to mind? None other than the rave of the moment, Iyanya. The Leo Stan-Ekeh owned tech-company put pen to paper, inked a deal and made Iyanya N56milion richer.
Others who have put pens to paper include Rita Dominic who was snapped up a couple of weeks ago by Keystone Bank Plc; Tiwa Savage has a mouth-watering deal with Forte Oil and Gas, MTN, Pepsi, among others; Wizkid, Hafiz Oyetoro, Mike Ezuruonye, Stephanie Okereke and a host of others are enjoying a new lease of life as brand ambassadors with millions of naira to the good.
Veteran Nollywood Actress & Afro-juju legend Sir Shina Peters are parents to top music director Clarence Peters.
Clarion Chukwurah reportedly took care of Clarence on her own till he became who he is today.These days,Shina Peters is so proud of his son..In an interview with The Nation,she opened up on why she didn’t terminate the pregnancy even when she had the opportunity to..
“You know what? It is not because Clarence is successful today. Clarence knows the truth and those who are close to me know the truth. I didn’t have Clarence because I was too helpless to get rid of his pregnancy. I had three sets of friends: there was Dr. Ojikutu( pauses)… when I was in the University of Ife( now Obafemi Awolowo University), he was ready to do it, free of charge. There was St. Lawrence in Ibadan and St. Jude here in Lagos.
But each time, I said no. I lost my father when I was 11 and he left a message that he was going to come back to me through my first kid. So, when I got pregnant, it kept ringing in my head that my father was coming back to me. Even my ex- husband knew how much my father meant to me. It was on his 30th anniversary that I was able to let go of the hurt of his death. Having Clarence was deliberate. I just had the conviction that my father was coming back. And from when he was born, everyone calls him daddy, including my mum”
On not getting married, she said..
Yes. I made a choice. I had Clarence, but I didn’t get married to his father. I got married to Brian’s father, but it didn’t work out. I made a choice and if I had to be married, my focus will have to be divided and somehow there will be some psychological upheaval in my children.Why does it have to be marriage? Why can’t it be a relationship? No, no, no! I think a relationship makes it easier for both of us, you know. We each have our different and established lives. There are certain things you don’t start expecting the person to give up. This is because marriage means you have to give up one or two things. When you start expecting somebody to give up something for you, then, you start expecting cramping that person’s style. I think it is more convenient to love each another and each other’s best friend. Just be in a relationship and it will happen.
Alhaji Abass Akande popularly known as Obesere has concluded plans to shoot a blockbuster movie on r*pe. The Fuji singer who was recently hit by a r*pe scandal is taking the advantage of the situation by turning it into a film.

It is not yet certain if the famous musician will be starring in the movie, but prominent artistes are sure to take the lead in the movie. Unconfirmed reports also have it that a total sum of N20 million has been budgeted for the project.
Further digs revealed that the movie is to expose men and women who blackmail people with rape scandal and to capture tricks and methods used by r*pists. Explaining further, Obesere’s publicist, Deola Adeoti said, “the movie is targeted at unraveling the mystery behind the r*pe scandal.”
“A whole lot of things have been read and said about him in the past few weeks, but I think this movie will tell the world the plain truth,” he added.
There have been speculations that Wizkid and his longtime Girlfriend Tania Omotayo are no longer together. They have not been spotted together at events as frequently as they used to, then they posted some cryptic messages on Instagram and Twitter which even fuelled the rumours.
According to Punch,
A source close to the couple has confirmed to them that the lovebirds’ relationship is over. According to the unnamed source, Wizkid and Tania went their separate ways last
December. Although the reason for their split is still unknown, the source was doubtful whether either of them was in a relationship.
“They have split for a long time now. In fact, I think it was since December. I don’t know why they broke up and I don’t know if Wizkid is in another relationship but they are no more together,” the source said.
When Saturday Beats called the singer’s manger, Godwin Tom, to confirm the split, he did not pick his calls neither did he reply the text message sent to him.
This is Your Opportunities, Ladies!!!
Lagos-based songwriter, Harrison Okiri, is living large as a songwriter, Anusiobi Franklin writes
He started singing in a local church in Warri, Delta State. But today the singer-songwriter and one-time fisherman, Harrysong, real name Harrison Okiri, says he charges as much as N1m to write a song.
But, that’s not all. He also recently grossed as much as N50m as proceeds from the Mandela Caller tunes on MTN. According to the muscular artiste, the track which is a Tribute to the late South African leader Nelson Mandela, released on December 11, 2013, received a stunning one million downloads in a single day. It is said to have become the most downloaded caller tune in Nigeria and Africa.
An excited Harrysong says, “The proceeds from the caller-back tune is actually worth more than N50m. Truth is, I was paid a lot of money; you know – when they say money that can change someone’s life. That’s the value of what I received .
“I can’t reveal the exact amount because we work as a team. So, all the money realised is shared among us. You just want to forget all the years of suffering. It’s not a mere hype because the money is there. The song is everywhere. You go to South-Africa , the girls are crazy about it.”
For Harrysong, the growth being experienced on the Nigerian entertainment scene is a welcome development for stakeholders. For songwriters who are often not well-paid, this may be their time to shine.
He says, “Before now we (songwriters) charged between N100, 000 and N2000, 000 for a song. Today I charge as much as 1million to write a song. Truth is, Nigerian artistes have begun to appreciate songwriters. They pay me my money and appreciate me.
“I have written a lot of songs but I don’t talk about them because Nigerian artistes don’t like it when the songwriters take credit for compising songs for them.”
With the new-found fame, the artiste who has 120 unreleased songs in his repertory is clearly living the life of a star. He relishes his recent trip to the recently-held Grammies in the US, with so much delight.
“The trip was fully sponsored by MTN and a reward for the success of the Mandela caller tune. We were chauffeur-driven in a limousine from the house to the airport and it was the same when we landed in America. I experienced firsthand some of the things I only see on TV. We flew first class and it was my first time in America as well. Caller tunes and ring back tunes are the future, I tell you. I never knew all this before now.”
Having experienced first class music performance at the Grammy, and chatting with his mentors, P Diddy, Kendrick Lamar and Steve Wonder, the singer, who is the only child of his parents, believes that a Nigerian can win the prestigious award soon.
“Because Nigerian music is believed to be the best, the outside world is focusing on us. The market is getting bigger and bigger than us. So they are trying to identify with us. A Nigerian will win the Grammy in the next four to five years.
“If you do wack music you won’t go too far because they (international audience) know good music when they hear one. That is why not every song can cross over. Wizkid and Femi Kuti’s Jaiye Jaiye, Kcee’s Limpopo and Pull Over and 2face’s Ihe Neme, all stand a good chance because they contain linguas that will appeal to the world audience.”
Many blogs were rently abuzz with stories that his erstwhile boss, Kevin Luciano of Questionmark label, is suing him for contractual breech. But Harrysongs debunks the claims.
He says, “We settled out of court with Questionmark over six months ago but I guess someone just dug this out of nowhere. Because the brand is now big, people would want to talk about and read anything about it. Even people whom I have done songs with in the past are just releasing them now.
“Five Star Music is a blessing to my life. So is Kevin, who I consider to be my older brother. We were together a few days ago and he was advising me. He guides me and I don’t have any problem with him.”
Yet, Harrysong, who says songwriting is a self-taught skill , says he isn’t looking forward to bagging a Grammy anytime soon.
“When we (Five Star music) make our music, we just want to be ourselves. We are not thinking about the American market because we are more concerned with the Nigerian and African market. We are embracing our people first because we can’t give the international market what they already have – like RnB.”
