Ghanaian rapper Medikal has sparked a debate online after he made a controversial statement.
According to him, he’s richer than all the biggest Nigerian artistes except Davido. Medikal claims his net worth is bigger than that of Rema, Wizkid, Tems, Burna Boy, and the other huge Nigerian stars.
The brouhaha about Medikal on X, formerly Twitter, started after he posted a screenshot of his chat with American YouTuber, Kai Cenat. Kai shared a video with Medikal where he said that he would want to be shown the same love when he comes to Ghana.
Medikal shared the screenshot on his page, using the caption:
“F*kn goat coming to GH. Naa I’m gassed fr!
After referring to Kai Cenat as a “goat,” Medikal’s fans and other X users were not happy because they believe the title doesn’t fit the young YouTube star. A series of comments were made under the tweet. Some chided him for even sharing the screenshot of their chat.
The only Nigerian artist wey hold pass me na Davido I swear
This reply further sparked more controversy on his page. Many believed Medikal did not have enough money to call himself richer than the world’s biggest Nigerian stars including Burna Boy, Wizkid, and others.

According to the Ghanaian rapper, he considers a co-sign from Lil Wayne as one of the highlights of his career. Medikal took to social media to express his emotions about this highlight saying,
“Became a rapper because of this Man and my whole life changed.”
Music executive and talent manager, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh confirmed to YEN.com.gh that the co-sign from Lil Wayne has come in handy for the rapper as his ambitious 02 concert gets more imminent.
