Olamide Baddo is the richest rapper in Nigeria today and i know a lot of you anticipated this before i even disclosed it. No doubt, he is the undisputed best and richest rapper in Nigeria 2017.

In time past, M.I (Mr Incredible) whose real name is Mr Incredible Abaga use to be the richest rapper in Nigeria but as you can see things have changed and it seems the table is turning around. There are loads of rappers springing up and this has tremendously affected his net worth because he is being kicked out of his former position.
He doesn’t even sing again and we are all wondering how he is managing to retain this second position.

He is often compared to the late Da grin and many will think he deserves more than this spot. well, we are very certain that he has come to stay and he will keep climbing up on this list .
5. Falz The Badt Guy
He is really the bad guy when it comes to delivering rap rhymes in humorous way. Falz The Badt Guy is really moving to the top of his hustle in a fast pace and he is one of the most talked about rapper in recent times. The fastest rising rapper was no where as at two years ago , but he is now one of the biggest name in the rap game recently because of hard work.

He is a lawyer by profession but decided to pursue rap because it pays most as he said in one of his latest hit.
The wealthy rapper has also been featured in a popular movie called Jenifa’s Diary and also has a lot of endorsement deals from giant companies. His father is a famous lawyer who wanted his son to be like him but Falz would rather prefer to follow his dream that is what has brought him this far.
