Rap artists from all over the world earn millions of dollars from their brands and music in the hip-hop industry, which is constantly growing and evolving. The addition of business and other investments to these talented rappers' portfolios has increased their net worth, and they have become some of the wealthiest figures in the entertainment industry.

Many successful African rappers exist, but this list focuses on three of the best from South Africa.

Cassper Nyovest

Cassper Nyovest, aka Refiloe Maele Phoolo, is without a doubt South Africa's best rapper. Cassper is a rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur, and record producer, among other things. The musician was born and raised in a small town in South Africa's North West, and despite being a school dropout, he has made a name for himself not only in South Africa, but also internationally. Cassper was recently named Artist of the Decade at the South African Hip Hop Awards, and in addition to his music, he has an alcohol brand, a signature shoe line, and his own record label. In 2012, his net worth was estimated to be $4 million.


Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, also known as AKA, is a South African rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and entrepreneur who is 34 years old. AKA was born and bred in Cape Town and he  shot to fame in 2010 when his hit song Victory Lap topped the charts, and he hasn't looked back since. Aside from chart-topping singles, the rap artist owns one of the largest nightclubs in Durban, a merchandise division that produces and sells t-shirts, sweaters, and caps, and a partnership with Cruz Vodka. In 2021, Supa Mega's net worth was predicted to be around $10 million.
