    Where's M.I?but I see Ice Prince?
    Wiz Kid is way above Banky on the list,in other words,Wiz is more 'bankable' than Banky.
    One would think Fally Ipupa would make the list too,ladies Love him here.

    A lot of people are naturally lazy in the way of making money.

    many people have lost hope about how to make money

    online/offline while some have lost a fortune to fraudulent

    investment companies, and yet, so many people are making

    thousands of dollars online every hour. you can also make such

    profits... seek information,make inquiries, have the zeal.

    There is a new investment company that has extended

    their services to Nigeria, the name is mC'dave investment

    services ltd. investments with mc'dAve investment will allow

    investors to gain financial freedom and independence of which

    you so long dreamed. they provide a wide range of investment

    options in which you can choose from.

    mc'dAve investment services invests in several areas

    such as US stock exchange, UAE stock exchange, purchase of

    The list is bankable not networth, the list is determined by the artist recent popularity and incomes not long term, akon will be no1 because no matter how it is he will not be taking lower dan 15m naira for a show which i know in most cases it might be more, and davido can not be there because he has just one endorsement and also he does not run the amount of show wizkid or ice prince runs lately, don jazzy is coming before dbanj because dbanj has not been making too much money recently on the music scene but it is fact that his networth is more than that of donjazzy, psqaure sells out more shows than any other african artist

    Linda once said she needs to brush up her English, yes i believe she need it seriously to educate her blog followers.

    like i said before, you can use your dictionary or google the meaning of BANKABLE. the list is not about how rich they are. bankable means if you have someone on something, will it sell. that depends on popularity and likeability.

    Don Jazzy is not rich, at least not up to half of dbanj wealth or Psquare wealth. the only reason Don jazzy is first from naija on that list is because of his twitter presence.

    i am not hating, but lets try to use our god given brains. if forbes official read the comments here, they will begin to wonder if not all Nigerians are dumb. please, we should stop disgracing ourselves.

    one Idiot said said Igbo people are first two, Lobatan. is Don jazzy fans made up Igbo people alone. are the major promotors of don jazzy not Yorubas and other Nigerians. makes me wonder why Igbo people never change. theit inferiority complex is amazing. if Dangote was an Igbo man, Adenuga, Otedolla or Adeleke, Nigerians are in trouble with Igbo people. the Rricest Nigerias are still Yorubas and Hausas. kAPISH.
    Imagine the richest black woman in the world Mrs Alakija was an igbo woman. I dread imagining what igbo people will cliam. Gosh.
