Wyclef Jean Net Worth

Born Wyclef Jeanelle Jean on the 17th day of October, 1969 in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti, Wyclef Jean is estimated to be worth $50 million. He is a winner of the Grammy Awards on three occasions and his wealth has largely come from his musical contributions as a rapper, songwriter, singer, record producer and musician. 

Wyclef Jean is best-known as a member of the Fugees or the Refugee Camp (also featured Pras Michel and Lauryn Hill) as well as a very successful artist in the solo business. After moving to the United States at the age of 9, most of his time has been spent in the U.S. When with the Fugees, they released their debut album called Blunted On Reality but did not receive much success as their 1996 album called The Score, which went on to sell more than 6 million copies and in the process earning the group two Grammy Awards. This was a huge addition to the Wyclef Jean net worth.

Wyclef was soon to part ways with the group and in the next year, his debut album The Carnival was released and it went multi-platinum. His second album (The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book), which was nominated for the Best Hip Hop Act by MTV in 2000’s Europe Music Awards, followed three years later and it featured big names like Kenny Rodgers, Youssou N’Dour, Mary J. Blige and The Rock. He has gone ahead and released several other solo albums like Masquerade, From the Hut and The Preacher’s Son. 

Other than singing, Wyclef Jean is also a politician. In 2010, Jean tried his luck in Haitian politics; however, he was blocked out of the Presidential race due to limitations associated with the duration of residence in his home country. He is also actively involved in a number of charitable works in his home country.
