Who made more money from shows in 2022: Burna Boy, Wizkid, or Davido?
Anytime the three African music industry behemoths start trending on Twitter, I see a lot of people asking this question.
I also see people who type keywords like Wizkid, Davido and Burna Boy who is the richest? or just maybe Wizkid and Burna Boy who is the richest?
Without making use of the search engine, everyone knows that Davido is the richest musician in Africa. But this article is not about that.
There’s a difference between the richest musician, the highest paid musician, the best musician, and the highest grossing musician.
So this article is about the highest-grossing musician in 2022.
I saw many people fighting on Twitter because of an article which says that Burna Boy earned a whopping $8.3 million from his Madison Square Garden debut concert.
So because I want some people to understand that Burna Boy is the king of show business in 2022, I decided to write this piece.
Don’t insult me. I like to poke my nose into celebrities’ businesses. That’s what the modern system of the internet has turned us into.
Before we proceed, if you are on Twitter, kindly follow me here. Before you follow me, take note that I post a lot.
I know you’re not happy with the headline of this piece, which reads, “Burna Boy Has Made More Money From 2022 Shows Than Wizkid And Davido.”
Yes, I realize it’s not pleasant, but they’re the most well-known celebrities in the world, so whatever they do makes the news.
It also generates material for internet publishers like us, which is how we make money. That’s why you have so many Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy comparison articles online.
“Na me dey give them life,” Davido said. Yes, he is very right. Without him, some people will stop blogging.
Anyway, we are done with all that. For now, I want to ask you a quick question:
