Becca is a Ghanaian singer, songwriter, and actress with an estimated net worth of $7 million. The “You Lied to Me” singer is doing very well for herself and it is believed that she is richer than her husband, Nigerian artist manager Daniel Oluwa Tobi Sanni, although his net worth is not known to the public.
For the longest time, Becca kept her relationship a secret and away from the harsh glare of the public. Understandably, like her peers at home and abroad, she wanted to keep her love life out of the media attention that characterizes her existence. But as she grew famous, the secret became harder to keep. When the world finally learned about his identity, there was a flurry of questions, including who is wealthier.
Becca is Among the Richest Artists in Ghana with a Net Worth of $7 Million
When Becca began her music journey in 2007, it was apparent she was heading to the top, and that is precisely how it has played out after thirteen years. She is one of the most recognizable names in the industry and has the financial standing to back it up.
Different sources differ on how much she is worth, but they all agree that she is one of Ghana’s richest artists. Sources place Becca’s net worth at $7 million. It is enough to see her place fourth in a top ten list behind Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, and Okyeame Kwame.
Over a decade, it has taken a combination of sources for Becca to accrue her enviable net worth. These sources include:
- Music sales,
- Endorsements, and
- Live performances.
Becca first began showing interest in singing and using her voice while studying at Wesley Girls’ High School in Cape Coast, Ghana. After studying and working in the UK for a while, she relocated back to Ghana and signed a music deal with Kiki Banson’s EKB records.
Since releasing her first album, Sugar, in 2007, she has gone on to establish herself as a musical force in Ghana and Africa. Two more albums have since followed, with impressive collaborations with local and international artists like 2face, Shatta Wale, M.I Abaga, Uhuru, etc.
She has gathered massive wealth from album sales, streams, collaborations, and YouTube views. She has fans from all over the world who stream her music and flock to watch her music videos.
Another way Becca rakes in the funds is through her ambassadorial commitments and endorsements. They are:
- In 2014, she became a goodwill ambassador for the UNAIDS.
- In 2009, she was unveiled as one of Glo Mobile’s first set of brand ambassadors.
- Ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Becca became one of Ghana’s official ambassadors by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
As a world-class singer and extremely popular figure, she is regularly contracted to perform at events. Her never-ending gigs fetch a significant amount of money per appearance, making Becca one of the industry’s highest earners. Some of the most notable venues she has performed at include:
- The Accra International Conference Centre for MTN’s Heroes of Change TV series finale.
- In December 2013, she headlined the third edition of the Girl Talk Concert. The event took place at the National Theatre of Ghana.
- In March 2014, she was announced by AllSports Ghana as a performer before the kick-off of the Ghana Premier League. She was hired to bring more awareness and focus to the league.
Now that we know how much Becca is worth, it is time to determine if her husband can match up or even surpass these numbers. We all know he is also successful in his field and financially well-off, but just how well-off is he exactly?
Becca’s Husband Started His Career as a Banker
Tobi Sani, a Nigerian entrepreneur and artist manager, has been amassing a modest net worth since he joined the entertainment business in 2010. He studied at the University of Ilorin, where he bagged a degree in Business Administration and Management. He went on to bag another degree as a Graduate Chartered Economist.
Not satisfied with this, he went a step further by becoming an Associate Chartered Economist. In 2016, he got inducted as a Fellow Chartered Economist at the Economics Merit Awards. This honor was conferred on him by the Institute of Chartered Economists of Nigeria (ICEN).
Over the years, he has worked as a banker in numerous banks. He began his banking journey with Triumph Bank before moving on to act as head of treasury operations at Liberty Bank. Later, he got promoted to the corporate head office, where he served as operation head. Sani moved away from Liberty Bank to work, first at Equatorial Trust Bank, then Bank PHB. He was brand head at both of these banks.
He is Also a Promoter and Talent Manager
After years in the banking sector, Tobi Sani decided to leave the industry and head into entertainment in 2010. He set up his own entertainment company named State of Mind Entertainment (SOME) and led him to become a top-rated event manager and promoter. He won an award for the Nigerian Entertainment Executive of the Year in 2015 at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards.
Sani is also a talent manager. He was formerly the manager of Nigerian rapper Ice Prince and Nigerian footballer Elderson Echiejile. The former banker currently manages celebrity DJ, DJ Spinall and his wife, Becca. He has proven to be successful in his career so far, and he remains highly respected in the entertainment industry.
Tobi moves in high-class circles and enjoys the good life. Since he got married to Becca, controversies about his wealth have risen. A lady named Nana Yaa Achiaa, who claimed to be Becca’s cousin, released a video in 2019 that claimed Tobi Sani was a broke person feeding off Becca. According to her, he is not the millionaire he purports himself to be and is actually penniless. These rumors were never substantiated.
However, despite the professional exploits of Becca’s husband, there is no concrete figure of Tobi Sani’s net worth online. Everyone agrees he is rich, but no one knows to what extent. The lack of definitive knowledge about his income sources and net worth puts Becca at an advantage in terms of their relative success.
Becca Has a Higher Net Worth Than Her Husband
Being in the entertainment space means Becca and her husband, Tobi Sani, will get compared from time to time. Although when you analyze things, Becca seems to have the upper hand. She is significantly more popular and well-known than her husband.
The singer has 2.4 million followers on Instagram compared to his 140k followers. She has also won more awards and earned more nominations in her field than he has in his. She has won a minimum of ten awards compared to just the one for him.
Becca is also richer than her husband. Although there are no figures quoted anywhere for Tobi Sani’s net worth, Becca’s is estimated to be around $5 million – $6.2 million. It makes her the fourth richest artist in Ghana. An accolade her husband does not share in his field.
Although they are both successful and rich in their respective fields, it is clear that Becca has achieved more and is more successful. Despite this fact, their marriage remains solid, publicly at least, and they continue to grow from strength to strength. They celebrated their second anniversary of being a married couple in August 2020, continuing a relationship since they met in 2008.
Tobi and Becca Were Colleagues for Seven Years Before They Started Dating
Although the relationship was kept a secret from the whole world and came as a shock to most people, Becca and Tobi Sani have known each other for quite some time. They had always moved together in the entertainment circle and had mutual friends.
Tobi Sani expressed his interest in a relationship and marriage to Becca in 2015 after he had known her for seven years. He shared this desire with her in Central Park, New York.
It was the beginning of them getting closer and becoming confidants, which naturally transitioned into a romantic relationship and culminated in marriage. In total, Tobi Sani and Becca officially dated for three years before they walked down the aisle and tied the knot.
Their Marriage Began in August 2018 and Has Produced a Daughter
Becca and her husband, Tobi Sani, got married on the 18th of August, 2018. The wedding took place in Accra, Ghana, with attendance by a lot of celebrities. Both the traditional and white weddings took place on the same day in Accra.
The marriage ceremony was strictly by invitation and had public personalities from Ghana and Nigeria in attendance, including Ghana’s minister for tourism, Catherine Afeku. Other celebrities in attendance were Jackie Appiah, Joselyn Dumas, Sandra Ankobiah, and Tobi Sani’s former client, Ice Prince.
The union has produced one child so far, a daughter. She was born in Canada, seven months after the lavish wedding ceremony. Although she is Becca’s first child, Tobi Sani allegedly has two other children from his first marriage.
