Ed Sheeran is the richest solo artist in the world, pulling in an estimated $99,000 (around R1,4m) per day in 2018
This is according to a list released by music publication NME. So he beat Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Adele! But it’s not all gravy. He did have to pay R96,5m in taxes at the end of the year.
Despite the huge tax bill, we’re sure that Ed is still doing okay, and that he and his new wife will live happily ever after. Let’s hope that he doesn’t take early retirement, and continues making awesome music!
