There are endless stories about famous hip hop artists whose every step of their life is monitored. Sometimes even we know more about them than they do about themselves. Funny, isn’t it? Most are Hollywood, but what about those not from the USA? Well, it’s time that we talk about some of these people because they are also trendy. Moreover, they live in a continent and country with a huge fan base of hip hop music. Case in point let’s talk about a performer from the African continent, Olamide Adedeji and his net worth, career, age, and Wiki-bio
Olamide Adedeji Net worth, Sources of Income: $12.5 Million
Olamide made the most of his revenue through music. In 2013 he signed with Telecommunications company Etisalat to be their brand ambassador alongside Ice Prince. The deal was worth hundreds of millions of Naira and is still on till date.
Since his popularity is growing, his performance per show brings him an income of about 3 million. We know many people don’t think much of that because they have no idea of the value of the Nigerian currency. So we’ll give you a hint, and you calculate the earnings alone. USD 1 = 315 NGN (Naira)
The artist was the first Nigerian artist to sign with the international premium vodka company, and a source says the deal is worth more than 40 million. 2013 was such a good year for Olamide as he closed another endorsement deal with Guinness. Likewise, the deal is also worth several millions of Naira.
Over six years in his musical career, Olamide Adedeji’s net worth comes to about $ 12.5 million. His salary, however, is not known. The Nigerian artist’s collaborative tracks with other notable singers like Wiz kid, D’Banj and Davido have also helped a bit in his net worth stretching.
Houses and Cars
Like many who can afford a fancy lifestyle, Olamide loves luxury and has it in the form of houses and cars. The rapper drives:
- Toyota Camry which costs 4 million Naira
- Two Range Rover Sports for about 15 million Naira
- Mercedes Benz G Class for about 23 million Naira (G-Wagon)
Olamide loves luxurious villas and has 2 in Nigeria. One in Lagos, and the other on the island, Lekki. The Villa in Lagos costs about 20000 USD, which is a small price to pay in the States. However, most people in Nigeria cannot afford it.
Such houses in the USA cost millions of dollars. His homes have several floors, equipped with several rooms, a bathroom, a place of relaxation and leisure pool. Currently, he lives in a house in Lagos with his girlfriend and baby Mama.
Olamide Work Highlight and Career Info.
The artist mostly achieved fame when he released his debut album in 2011 titled Rapsodi. The album featured tracks like Eni Duro and more predominantly in his native Yoruba language. However, the following year, he released his second album titled YBNL. Unlike the first, this one had more English tracks which appealed to a greater audience.
As we speak, the Nigerian rapper has eight studio albums and one collaborative album he did with Phyno in 2015. They include Baddest Guy Ever Liveth, Street OT, Eyan Mayweather, The Glory, Lagos Nawa, and YBNL Mafia Family.
As a result, the singer bagged in a lot of awards and accolades. He has won several Nigerian Entertainment Awards, City People Entertainment Awards and The Headies in 2014. Additionally, Olamide was also nominated for the World Music Awards. Let’s hope he wins it this year.
