The bottom line
Zoro Swagbag kept his love life real close to his heart. There is nothing to be heard about that. As an upcoming artist in the Nigerian Industry, he has only so far received little awards and a bit of publication. He is, however, a Social Media Influencer and makes most of his cash by advertising products and services for companies on this social media page. He is however not currently endorsed by any company and therefore there is no estimated net-worth just yet for him. Although we will keep you informed as our lovely Zoro goes farther within the Entertainment Industry, Zoro Swag bag is hitting it up in the Nigerian rap game.
He currently has an estimated net worth of $ 700,000
