Top 10 Richest Reggae/Dancehall Artist Alive

 
 
 

Hip Hop have their own mega stars who are raking in millions every year. The likes of Jay-z, Diddy and 50 Cent comes to mind. But Caribbean Reggae artists are making paper too. Urban Islandz readers have been asking who the richest persons in reggae/dancehall are. We have the answer to that question.

There are no doubts that if this list was for the all time richest reggae musician, the number one person would be Bob Marley, with an estimated worth of US$130 million. Marley, though is deceased is still richer than all the other reggae artists on the list combined. Bob is down in history as one of the richest dead celebrity of all time. Well lets get down to business, we will start from number 1.

1. Shaggy – Net Worth US$22 Million

Shaggy 2001 album “Hot Shot” sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, making him one of music’s top selling artist. The mega sales propelled Shaggy to arguably become Reggae’s Richest artist of the current generation. “Hot Shot” peaked at number one on the Billboard charts in the US and UK, and was certified X6 platinum in the US alone. Despite the huge success of “Hot Shot” Shaggy never release another successful album today and he really doesn’t need to. These days Shaggy is more known for his charitable work in Jamaica, after he launched the Shaggy foundation, which is responsible for the annual Shaggy and Friends concert. All profits goes to the Bustamante Children Hospital in Jamaica.

    I also disagree with this list where is the likes of people like Elephant man, Morgan heritage and many more that people listen to there songs. I don’t think there is a place Morgan heritage will go and the house will not be fully packed.
