Have you ever wished for one of your favorite celebrities to show up at one of your events, birthday parties, or other celebrations? Or simply attending a concert with all ten of your favorite musicians? That would be amazing, and many of us would put it at the top of our wish lists. However, expect to pay a lot of money if you want a celebrity to attend your party, event, or celebration. Celebrities can charge anywhere from a few thousand dollars to over a quarter million dollars, depending on their level of fame. Isn't it insane?

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

Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe, better known by his stage name Kizz Daniel, is one of Nigeria's most in-demand musicians. The musician rose to popularity in 2014 with his hit single Woju and hasn't looked back since. For local concerts in Nigeria, Kizz Daniel costs between 5 and 6 million Naira (approximately P 167,635/-) and up to $80,000 for overseas appearances.

2baba is up next, best known for the song "My African Queen".  Most people are often shocked by his local  appearance fee of about N7 million Naira, given his prominence. The star has a reputation for being extremely flexible and accommodating when it comes to his appearance fees. For international performances, 2baba charges anywhere from $35,000 to $45,000.

Paul Nonso Okoye, a Nigerian singer, composer, and record producer, is next on the list. Paul, better known by his stage name Rudeboy, was a former member of the dynamic duo P-Square. For local appearances and performances, the star charges between 6 and 8 million Naira, and up to $100,000/- for international appearances.

Tiwa Savage, Nigeria's most famous female musician, is next on the list. The artist is still Nigeria's highest-paid female musician, so you know she is securing that bag!  Tiwa also charges between 6 and 8 million Naira for local shows, which seems to be the standard rate for celebs. Our favorite, on the other hand, does not play when it comes to international gigs; the diva's performance costs a stunning $100,000/-.

Naira Marley, the President of the 'Marlians' fanbase, is the next person on our list. Apart from his music, the musician is no stranger to controversy, and I'm sure that's what his fans love about him the most. Naira Marley charges between 8 and 10 million Naira for local shows, while his international rate card might approach and exceed $100,000/-.

We couldn't compile this list without including Starboy aka Big Wiz aka WizKid, our personal favorite. Despite the fact that he only plays in Nigeria on rare occasions, his local fee is between 20 and 50 million Naira, or roughly P 558,785/- just over half a million Botswana Pulas! We could only imagine what he charges for his international appearances.

So, if you're planning on having one of these celebrities perform at your event, we hope your wallet can handle it since they don't come cheap!
