Senegalese-American impresario Akon ranks third with $21 million, thanks to his Konvict Clothing label, a lucrative World Cup soccer ad campaign for Pepsi and Kon Live, his Interscope-backed imprint that’s home to Lady Gaga and others.

Akon, who signed Lady Gaga to his label imprint, says the pop star’s mega-success has him ready to retire.
