The world is no doubt going through very tough times due to the coronavirus pandemic and the riots rocking many parts of the world to prove that black lives do matter.
As a result of the instability rocking the world, many businesses and fortunes have taken a hit. However, not everybody has been badly hit as some of them have been topping billionaire lists.
The music star reportedly raked in most of his earnings from his Yeezy deal with Adidas and it has put him financially ahead of other musicians in the world this year.
West — who has long proclaimed himself a billionaire — has now been named the highest-earning musician of the year by Forbes. In a celebrity ranking issued recently, the wealth-chronicling magazine estimated that West had earned a healthy $170 million over the past year, a figure that easily puts him ahead of every other musician in the world.
West was actually number two in the overall entertainment and celebrity ranking, however. Claiming first place was none other than Kylie Jenner, who deposited a healthy $590 million during the same period. Between West and his sister-in-law alone, that’s roughly three-quarters of a billion dollars in annual earnings, which doesn’t even count money earned by Kim Kardashian.
