Forbes name top 10 richest Musicians in Africa

Forbes Africa, in collaboration with South Africa’s Channel O, have named the richest musicians on the continent and the list is dominated by Nigerian acts.

Michael Owusu Addo, trade name Sarkodie, makes the list as the 9th richest artist on the continent.

Nigerians dominate the 10 man list which unsurprisingly lists the Senegalese-American giant Akon as top. South Africa’s Black Coffee and Hugh Masekela follow, with Don Jazzy and Tinashe completing the top five.
