It is an undeniable fact that money runs the world. It is the key to all the basic necessities and fine things in life.

Although some might argue that money can’t buy happiness, it can buy things that can make you happy. It would be a change of pace to be unhappy in your yacht, don’t you think?

Today we take a look at some of our richest celebs and discuss some of their money-making ventures. 

Bobi Wine


Self-proclaimed Ghetto President, Bobi Wine is currently the richest artist and not just in Uganda but East Africa as a whole.

Bobi Wine’s current net worth is estimated at about USD 9 million by Forbes and it all comes from his hustles as a musician, actor, entrepreneur, and politician.

Bobi started from the bottom. He was born in a humble family and was raised in Kamwookya slums, but that did not stop him from getting where he is right now.

He currently owns a good number of executive private property, among them a beach in Busibola, several buildings, and a couple of sleek drives among them a bulletproof V8.

We draw our inspiration from Bobi Wine today, whatever dreams you have of a better future are valid, you just have to get up and work on them.

Jose Chameleone


The second loaded celeb on our list today is “Jamila” hitmaker Joseph Mayanja aka Dr. Jose Chameleone.

Chameleone is one of the most famous and among the richest musicians in East Africa. He began his music career in the late 1990s under Ogopa Deejays, a Kenyan record label, and quickly rose to fame.

His talent in music has opened a lot of good doors for him including collabos with other music legends such as Professor Jay, Davido, and Konshens.

All these ventures bring his total net worth to an estimate of USD 8 million.

Bebe Cool


At an estimate of a whole USD 5.62 Million, it would be a mistake if Bebe Cool missed on this list.

Bebe Cool is a legendary musician in his own right. His music career has spun for over 20 years and has been marked with awards and international recognition.

Apart from music, which is his primary career, Bebe Cool is also an actor, a music producer, and philanthropist.

Kakuuto county MP and Baby girl Baby Boy hitmaker Geoffrey Lutaaya is another loaded artist-cum-politician on our list.
