♦Wizkid’s fourth studio album, Made in Lagos, was released in October of 2020 and so far, the Afrobeats project has been an acclaimed success.
By the end of 2021, officially fourteen months after the release of the LP, the WizKid Team revealed that the album now had, as at that time garnered over 1.4 billion streams across major streaming platforms.
That figure is one of the biggest streaming figures we’ve ever seen in the Nigerian music industry, and it had so many people wondering how much exactly the Starboy might make from that number of streams.
The album was released during a global pandemic, and so there were no physical copies available.
Here’s a comprehensive breakdown of the estimated income WizKid will get from his 1.4B streams, based on pay-per-stream information gotten from various sources.
Different platforms pay different amounts as royalties to artists, based on different metrics only known to them. But there’s an average range of payment we can work with here. Let’s analyze the major platforms.
