5. Tiwa Savage:
Queen of Mavin Records, this 39-year-old diva is Nigeria’s most priced songstress and one of the biggest in Africa today. The multiple brand ambassador is the life of many Nigerian parties and has remained so for about four years. The mother of one charges between N4m to N10m to be at her best at shows within the shores of Nigeria. She was until lately reported to also insist on being the only female artistes at gigs where she would agree perform and that partly explains why her colleagues are at war with her. Tiwa Savage as she is widely known charges $100,000 at the minimum for shows abroad. Mama Jam as she’s fondly called also has a rich history of international exposure and collaboration. She sings Rhythm &Blues Soul and Afro-pop.
