Have Streaming Platforms Contributed to NBA Geeboy’s Net Worth?
The singer may have shared many of his songs on different streaming platforms that may or may not contribute to his wealth. Some of the platforms include YouTube, Audiomack, and Spotify. For many artists, these platforms stand as a major contributor to their wealth, and perhaps Geeboy may fall in the same category. Here’s a breakdown of how NBA Geeboy performs on streaming platforms.
The current independent artist has slightly above 34,400 views on YouTube and also a little above 570 subscribers. Judging based on reports that YouTube can give artists about $0.5 to $3 per view, the 34,400 views may have generated from $172 to about $1,000.
Despite this estimation, there is no concrete evidence that NBA made this amount or has not made more. Regardless, there are claims that a YouTube Channel should have up to 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the past to monetize the channel and start earning.
If judging by this, NBA, whose subscribers are a little more than 500 at the time of this writing, may not have started earning from the streaming platform.
Audiomack and Spotify
On Audiomack and at the time of this writing, NBA has about 20.4k total plays, an average of 539 monthly listeners, and less than 1000 followers. On Spotify, on the other hand, he has about 150 monthly listeners at the time of this recording.
There is no authenticated backing that Geeboy has earned from both platforms since Audiomack allows users to start earning when they have up to 1000 followers, and the artist has less than this number. Spotify also gives the playlist followers of 1,000 to apply for monetization.
He May Earn From Money App
On his Instagram page, the Yoruba native shared how by March 2022, he had made over $100 million from a mobile Application called PUNCHMADE, L.L.C. Although he posted a video showing the balance on his phone, many of his followers claimed that he may have bought the figures.

Some social media users have claimed that NBA Geeboy’s source of wealth is questionable. Some comments project him as a fraud. However, this claim has never been ascertained and is mostly made because of how he shows cash.
In early 2021, a video that captured him looting a shop during the #EndSars protest circulated. He professed that he had “cashed out.” The video would lead to the debate of whether the self-acclaimed richest 21-year-old is as rich as he claims to be.
How NBA GeeBoy Spends His Fortune
The artist is known for his show of exotic lifestyles on social media. Among the many things, he displays are jewelry, such as chains and wristwatches. There are claims that he had displayed $200,000 worth of jewelry.
In 2021, he was spotted sharing money in a mall. He also spends large sums of money at gatherings. At a party, he claimed to have spent $80,000 in 5 seconds, and at another party, he spent $50,000.
One of the most controversial ways he has shown his money spending is that the rapper has dollar notes into the toilet and urinates on it. The video led to social media criticism, while others stood their ground that he may have used fake notes to create the content for the purpose of social media.
NBA Geeboy’s Cars
There is no knowledge of the cars that Geeboy has and their worth. Regardless, analyzing based on the life he projects on social media, he may own some luxury cars. Meanwhile, he had claimed that only his microwave was more expensive than one of Davido’s expensive cars.
Between NBA Geeboy and Davido, Who Is Richer?
NBA Geeboy claimed to be richer than Davido. However, in-depth research carried out by BuzzNigeria shows that Afrobeat singer Davido may be richer. Analyzing the net worth of both musicians, Geeboy’s net worth is estimated from $500,000 to $1.5 million, as reported by different sources. On the other hand, Davido’s net worth is estimated from as low as $10 million to as high as $40 million.
Going by the estimated net worth of NBA Geeboy and Davido as labeled by numerous sources online, it is safe to say that Davido is richer. Both men make a part of their wealth from music. From all we know, Geeboy has songs such as On Gaad and Dodo, while Davido boasts of hits such as Assurance, Stand Strong, and If.
Davido is often regarded as one of the top celebrated African musicians and made it to the list of the richest Nigerian artists. He also had the most song (Blow My Mind) in Nigeria, reaching a million views within the first 11 hours of its release. On the other hand, at the time of this writing, NBA Geeboy has more self-acclamation to these feats.
Furthermore, the two musicians’ style is one other thing that has been compared. The Nigerian-American singer, Geeboy had accused Davido and Wizkid of stealing his style. He further called to fight Davido just as David and Goliath in the Christian Bible. Rather, Davido reminded him that David killed Goliath.
NBA Geeboy’s Wealth is Also Compared to Hushpuppi’s
On social media, NBA has also claimed to be richer than internet sensation, Hushpuppi. This claim has also not been verified since Hushpuppi’s listed net worth is $40 million, while NBA’s highest listed net worth is about $1.5 million.
Hushpuppi was at a time described as one of the richest young Nigerians and was known for his lavish lifestyle. At the time of his arrest for his involvement in a $168 billion fraud, the authority also seized $6.8 million worth of luxury cars and nearly $41 million in cash.
Since there is no evidence of any amount of sort coming from the self-acclaimed richest youngest person in Nigeria, there is no verdict given that NBA Geeboy may in any way be richer than Hushpuppi.
