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

bonds and investment certificates, Forex and MUTUAL funds.

WOW THESE SOUND BIG!

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.

@iamseun: u r just a lame tribalist. Dis is what uv bn goin up n down Linda's n Bella's blogs ranting. U r just a mad dog- ur brother, Fani-Kayode's breed. First of all, I blame Linda for uploading ur racist remarks. 2ndly,pls dnt claim Yorubas or whatever r behind Don Jazzy- he is promoted by all Nigerians. 3rdly, DBanj no reach PSquare in cash, property n bankability- stop deceiving urself. 4thly, ur Alakija, Otedola, etc.r all corrupt rogues (hairdresser-turned-billionaire, printing man-turned-billionaire) n thus were rightly enriched by the same corrupt govt. d world knows Nigeria for- well u shd know dat too if u r lettered enof. In my own part of d world,we dnt celebrate corruption n mediocrity, instead we celebrate equity n enterprise. Wt all d corrupt looters u just mentioned, Nigerians still recognize the Igbos as those wt d highest standard of living (if we must b honest wt ourselves); they dont hav Dangote, bt overall d most comfortable...owning at least 70% of Abuja (ask Nasir El-Rufai- a Hausa/Fulani), 40% of Lagos (ask ur ACN Govt.if they'l tel u d truth)!!!. Now do d math, n thank Alakija n Otedola for me*smiles*. So stop hero-worshipping n sycophancy...it doesnt augur well for d majority but d select few u just listed (well, u'l hav to agree if u hav enof grey matter in u). So enof of dz ramblings- u r just like ur broda FFK- mad dogs suffering from RABIES! Pls STOP infesting d area,n infecting ppl wt ur tribalist rantings in d process..Linda dear, pls vet ur comments assiduously n barricade d @iamseun of these days like u did d Gbengas of yesteryears...TWITS (A Concerned Nigerian).
