Who is the richest between International music star Drake and Nigerian legendary defunct music duo P Square, what is their net worth?
Comparing the wealth values of two music legends from different worlds have been my most favourite thing to do. By now, everyone knows who Drake is, and of course, who the stinkingly wealthy twin brothers are.
Perhaps, a lot of people would think P Square is richer than Drake, because they’re two people and are paid double to get a full package.
On the other side of a thought, you’d think Drake’s richer because he gets paid mostly in the US currency, right? It’s not like that…
This isn’t exactly what we should base our measurements on. So what exactly should we base our measurements on?? True facts and not conclusions based on opinions. Drake’s a big guy in music, running speedily to become the biggest soon.
He’s a fine rapper who adds class to his music by simply garnishing his lyrics with that somewhat cool, relaxed voice, and a simple tune.
He’s crazily sought after. P Square in Nigeria holds the record as the richest musicians and someone’s going to take that record soon, especially now that the brothers are solo musicians.
In spite of this, they’ve successfully created a brand name for themselves, and destroying this brand name by going solo will definitely do no much harm to their separate music careers.
P Square is one name in the Nigeria music industry that has been around for a long time, that has been loved for a long time, and that has attained a level of popularity like no other music act in the country.
