Have you ever wished for a celebrity guest appearance at one of your events, birthday parties, or other occasions? Or simply going to a concert where all ten of your favorite musicians are performing? That would be incredible, and many of us would put it on our bucket lists. However, I f you want a celebrity to attend your party, event, or celebration, plan to spend money, a lot of money!  Depending on their level of popularity, celebrities can charge anywhere from a few thousand dollars to over a quarter million dollars for a performance. Isn't that wild?

We put together a list of some of our favorite celebrities and how much they would charge for a performance.

Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe, known professionally as Kizz Daniel, is a well-known musician in Nigeria. With his breakthrough track Woju in 2014, the musician shot to fame and hasn't looked back since. Kizz Daniel's local concerts in Nigeria cost between 5 and 6 million Naira (about P167,635/-) and his international appearances cost up to $80,000.

Next up comes 2baba, who is best known for the song "My African Queen." Given his celebrity status, most people are surprised by his local appearance fee of around N7 million Naira. When it comes to his appearance fees, the singer has a reputation for being highly flexible and accommodating. 2baba charges anywhere from $35,000 to $45,000 for foreign concerts.

Next on the list is Paul Nonso Okoye, a Nigerian singer, composer, and record producer. Paul was a former member of the dynamic duo P-Square and is best known by his stage alias Rudeboy. The star earns between 6 and 8 million Naira per local appearances and performances, and up to $100,000/- for overseas appearances.

Next on the list is Tiwa Savage, arguably Nigeria's most famous female musician. The singer is still ranked Nigeria's highest-paid female musician, so you know she's making that good money!  Tiwa also charges between 6 and 8 million Naira for local appearances, which appears to be the industry standard. When it comes to overseas gigs, our sweetheart, on the other hand, does not play; the diva's performance costs a whopping $100,000/-.

The next person on our list is Naira Marley, the President of the 'Marlians' fanbase. Aside from his music, the artist is no newbie to controversy, which I'm sure is what his fans appreciate the most about him. For local events, Naira Marley charges between 8 and 10 million Naira, while his overseas rate card might reach or exceed $100,000/-.

It would be impossible for us to make this list without mentioning our personal favorite, Starboy better known as Big Wiz aka WizKid. Despite the fact that he only performs in Nigeria on rare occasions, his local fee is between 20 and 50 million Naira, or just over half a million Botswana Pulas! We can only guess how much he is paid for his international performances.

So, if you want one of these superstars to perform at your event, we hope your wallet can handle it since they aren't cheap!
