Wizkid's collection also includes a custom-made $1 million diamond cross necklace and another diamond neckchain, Eliantte, valued at the same price. He also has an 'AYO' necklace the worth is not known, and numerous diamond rings which have not been publicly estimated.

To commemorate the success of his debut album "Rave and Roses," Rema commissioned a truly unique piece—adorned with 60 carats of colourless diamonds and nearly 90 carats of coloured diamonds. This masterpiece, modelled after the album cover's burning house, is reportedly worth over $134,800.

Rema also owns a VVS diamond chain valued at $39,500, a Jesus necklace from A Jewellers costing around $400,000, and an Audemars Piguet gold watch. This excludes his many diamond rings, with no report of their estimated cost.

In 2023, Tiwa Savage acquired a "ABG" custom-made pendant and necklace featuring VVS-certified diamonds, designed by Boz Jewellery, that cost about $20,000.

In 2021, she collaborated with Icebox to create a "Savage" pendant featuring VVS diamonds, valued at over $100,000.

Almost every afrobeat artist is blinged up, from Asake’s Mr. Money with the vibe chain reportedly worth $1 million to Shallipopi’s Elon Musk necklace reportedly worth 10 BTC to Adekunle Gold’s 'AG' diamond chain. Diamonds are a way of life for them.

It's difficult to determine who boasts the most extensive jewellery collection, but Burna Boy, Davido and Wizkid are certainly top three.
