Meet The Top Richest South African Rappers in 2022

Nothing is more enjoyable than when new data is released in the middle of the year and we can update our list. Rarely do you notice a significant change on the list of the richest rappers in South Africa.

Without a question, one of the highest earning musical subgenres worldwide is hip-hop. Among the wealthiest musicians worldwide are some of the top international rappers, including Jay Z, Kanye West, and Eminem.

Rappers in South Africa are not falling behind, as they are eclipsing the highest-paid musicians in terms of income while also earning millions from spitting verses. Look at the top 5 rap artists in South Africa in terms of wealth.

Rapper AKA made $12 million.

AKA, who has earned a fortune of about $12 million, is at the top of the list of the richest rappers in South Africa.

AKA, real name Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, began rapping when he was a young child. When his pals in their teens were still learning the basics of poetry, AKA started spitting verses.

He released his debut tracks in 2009: Do it, Problems, and In My Walk. His popularity has risen steadily since since the publication of his debut album in 2011.

He has performed on international stages, teamed up with some of Africa's biggest performers, and accumulated wealth thanks to his musical prowess.

In addition to his enormous success in the music industry, AKA has also made millions more through sponsorship agreements with companies like Reebok and Cruz Vodka. He established Beam Group, his own media company, in 2017.

AKA is one of the richest rappers in South Africa, so he conducts himself accordingly. He owns a private jet, an expensive car collection, and a sizable house.

He has been in Japanese films including Zulu Man and won awards like African Artiste of the Year.

Da L.E.S

Da L.E.S is one of the few South African rappers who prefers to maintain a low profile, but don't mistake this for a license to roughhouse with him.
