Erigga is a Nigerian indigenous rapper with an estimated net worth of $108,000 dollars. He was birthed in Warri, Delta State as Erhiga Agarivbie. Erigga started music as a career when he rounded off secondary school studies.
In the fall of 2016, November, Erigga inked a N10 million naira recording deal with Emirate Empire, a record label, he was also gifted a suited house as part of the deal.
Prior to being a renowned singer and taking up music, he always wanted to be a basketball player professionally as he partook of the Milo Basketball Championship organized by the big consumer goods brand, Milo, for secondary schools.
After dropping hits with critical lyrics like Death Bed, Air Burn and Paper Boi, Erigga started gaining fame in Nigeria, especially Warri/Delta region.
His rap style was highly influenced by rap stars like Jarule, 50 Cent, Eminem and others, but so was his decision to become a rapper and no more a basketball player influenced by other musicians at that time.
The singer has carved a special rap style for himself as Erigga Newmoney. What comes to peoples mind when his name is called is a music rap in the lingua-franca, Pidgin, and lyrics that makes too much sense sometimes.
He engages in rap battles in street corners and rap hoods, he has engaged also in bigger rap competitions in Benin, Port Harcourt and back in his hometown, Warri where he got out with a winner’s medal in most competitions.
His video titled “Dem Nor Get Two Heads” was also a spark in his career as people wanted to know more about him and see more of him.
The video gathered over 5k YouTube views in the first week though, and several others didn’t want to see the video because of the graphic content contained in it.
Some of Erigga’s songs are too raw and x-rated lyrically. For this reason, he’s not usually among the light of musicians whose songs are played on radio stations and can be aired anywhere.
He has worked with a number of musicians in the muzic industry, big time stars i mean. Erigga has won a couple of awards and has also been nominated for a few awards, including The Headies.
He has released over 100 singles, including Liar, Coffin, Skit, Pog, Laptop Bag, Paper Boi, Can’t Stop Me, Head Wan Blow, Okorowanta, and many others.
