Yes, that means he makes more than Beyoncé, Katy Perry and even, Taylor Swift. It has been confirmed that in the last year, Ed Sheeran earned over R1.4 million a day. This ultimately means that even on that random lazy Sunday Ed Sheeran spent on some beach in the past year, he pocketed over R1.4 million.

The successful pop star reportedly paid more tax than Starbucks and Amazon for all his earnings. The reason that Ed being the richest solo artist in the world sounds absolutely Perfect to us is because of the incredible artist he is. If it had to be someone, we’d pick him for all the beautiful music he’s given us over the years and we can’t wait to see him live in Joburg next year March.
