Be that as it may, exactly what amount of money does he have? Another lyric in the song may provide fans some insight: ‘Whoever said money can’t solve your problems/Must not have had enough money to solve them.
Celebrities have interested Nigerian fans since the time of King Sunny Ade and Daddy Showkey.
With the rise of the rock-star, beginning with popular artists like 2face, that fascination additionally prompted curiosity about their personalities, yet in addition about their normal lavish lifestyles and spending.
At the point when artists can make money by simply being famous, they can earn more money than somebody working their entire life and saving.
So, naturally, it wasn’t long before fans began to wonder, regardless of being a celebrity, how wealthy would they say they are?
