American rapper Kanye West has been overtaken by Rihanna on the richest musician list after Adidas terminated its partnership deal with him. The contract forms the biggest portion of West’s net worth.
Investors King reported that Adidas which signed a $1.5 billion partnership deal with West, had to terminate his contract due to the anti-semitic remarks he made earlier this month.
Following the termination of its partnership deal with Kanye, the company said in a post “Adidas does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech. Ye’s recent comments and actions have been unacceptable, hateful, and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness.”
Kanye West’s net worth was estimated at $2 billion, with $1.5 billion coming from his partnership deal with Adidas.
Following Adidas’ decision to cut ties with him, this has seen Kanye’s net worth dropped to an estimated $400 million, which has seen him drop from the Forbes billionaires list.
With this development, U.S singer and Fenty Beauty founder Rihanna, who was second to Kanye in the richest musician list, with an estimated networth of $1.4 billion, takes over the number one spot ultimately making her both the richest female musician and the richest musician in the world as of 2022.
According to Forbes’s estimation, the bulk of Rihanna’s fortune came from the value of her Fenty Beauty Brand, which she has 50 percent ownership of. The company is reportedly worth $2.8 billion.
The Barbados born singer has so far made money from a variety of industries asides from Music, which include fashion, and beauty with several endorsement deals.
Rihanna has designed collections for top brands such as Armani and River Island. She has also had creative partnerships with MAC Cosmetics.
According to Vogue, her makeup line brought in $100 million in sales within the first 40 days of its launch. While in 2021, Forbes reported that Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty had reached a $1 billion valuation in the US women’s underwear sector.

Immigration Service Orders Passport Offices to Work on Saturday
Passport offices to work on Saturdays across the country amid the surge in demand
Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has directed passport offices across the country to work on Saturday amid the surge in demand for international passports.
The directive which was contained in a statement released yesterday by the Public Relations Officer, Mr. Tony Akuneme, noted that the directive is aimed to enable the Service to reduce the backlog occasioned by the 2020 and 2021 prolonged lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The CG has directed that passport offices across the country with a high volume of pending applications to work on Saturdays. (However), the Saturdays preceding the Christmas and New Year holidays are exempted.
“The period for this exercise is expected to be every Saturday commencing from December 3, 2022, to January 28, 2023, between the period of 10 am and 2 pm,” the statement partly read.
Investors King understands that Nigerians have been going through a long queue while trying to acquire an international passport. In some cases, it could take as long as four to six months.
This long queue has created room for racketeering. A standard passport which normally costs N26,000 is being done at the rate of N50,000. It could be as high as N70,000 to N100,000 in some cities such as Abuja and Lagos.
According to the statement, the Controller-General of the immigration service has also approved the deployment of the Passport Controller in Ekiti to Jigawa, while the one in Ondo was moved to NIS Zonal Office in Ibadan.
The CG added that he will hold passport officers accountable for any acts of indiscipline by officers under their watch.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has cautioned Nigerians on the dangers of irregular migration, so as not to waste their future.
The CG who gave the advice disclosed that the service will intensify its efforts to sensitize Nigerians on the danger of irregular migration.
He noted that most of the victims are being brainwashed by travel agents who only care about making money from such trips.
