Nigerians React As Wizkid Fan Claim Singer Is Richer Than Tony Elumelu

A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted a claim by a presumed fan of Wizkid that the Starboy record label boss might be richer than Tony Elumelu, the chairman of Heirs Holdings, the United Bank for Africa and Transcorp.

Naija News recalls that Wizkid met the billionaire businessman. The duo posed for photos just before the launch of UBA group in Mali on January 3 which got a lot of people talking.

Elumelu, who is the founder of The Tony Elumelu Foundation, had described the meeting as: ”A quick chat with @wizkidayo before tonight’s show ahead of the @ubagroup ’s launch in #Mali” while the ”Fever” crooner also shared a photo of the duo, calling their meeting a done deal in Mali.

Reacting to the picture, Miss Sofunyin, a presumed fan of Wizkid tweeted: “And why do y’all think tony Elumelu is richer than Wizkid?”

Apparently displeased with the tweet Nigerians bounced on Miss Sofunyin and thereafter listed why Wizkid isn’t close to Elumelu when it comes to the duo’s net worth.
