Forbes has released the list of the world highest paid artistes for 2017.

It named United States, US, rapper and singer Sean Combs also known as PDiddy as the highest earning artist for 2017, following his income from Ciroc vodka, DeLeon tequila and Aquahydrate water.

PDiddy also made a lot of money from his Bad Boy Reunion Tour, and an estimated $70 million sale of his Sean John clothing line.

Forbes disclosed that PDiddy made an estimated pre-tax earnings of a whopping $130 million so far in 2017.

The website also named Drakes, whose Boy Meets World tour and deals with Apple, Sprite and Nike earned him an estimated $94 million as the next highest earned artiste.
