Who is Nigeria's richest musician? See his networth


Who is the richest Nigerian artiste in the music industry?

For all those wondering who the richest artist in Nigeria is, no, it is not Wizkid or Davido. Those boys are sure popular, but they have not yet earned enough money to even come close to the person we are going to be talking about.

So who is the richest person in Nigeria music?

Well, it is none other than Don Jazzy! This well-known producer, singer and entrepreneur has become so rich over the years that Forbes Africa put him in 4th place on the list of most bankable artists in the whole of Africa. How did he ever get that rich? Let’s find out.

How did Don Jazzy become the top richest musician in Nigeria?

The person you know today as Don Jazzy was born as Michael Collins Ajereh on November 26, 1982, in Lagos State, where he spent his early years of life. Since childhood, he was interested in music, so he decided to learn how to play bass guitar, percussion and traditional instruments.

He received business education from the Ambrose Alli University, which helped him out to build his career in the future. But before he became rich and successful, Don Jazzy used to work as a security guard at McDonalds in London, play drums at the church his uncle invited him to, and be a member of a band, where he played bass.


In 2004, he and D’Banj came together to create Mo’ Hits Records, which was probably his first major step to success. For the next eight years, he worked as a producer and background vocalist, producing numerous popular albums and singles. During his time at Mo’ Hits, Don Jazzy worked with such big names as Kanye West, Jay Z and even Beyoncé.

After things fell apart in 2012, he abandoned Mo’ Hits Records and started his own record label called Mavin Records. Now he has nine artists under his wing, as well as an award for the Best Record Label of the Year from the 2014 City People Entertainment Awards. In addition to that, he has several awards in the category Producer of the Year.
