So just how rich is Ashanti? According to sources, Ashanti’s net worth is estimated to be $20 million. Undoubtedly, the majority of Ashanti’s net worth and wealth comes from her singing career

Ashanti’s mother Tina was a dance teacher, and her father, Ken-Kaide a singer, so it’s not very surprising that as a child, Ashanti expressed interest in the arts, and consequently went to attend dancing classes, and joined the church choir. With her dancing group, Ashanti performed in the Apollo Theatre and Avery Fisher Hall. Ashanti then became interested in singing, and during her high school years performed at various local events and even took part in a talent show. Before launching a professional singing career, Ashanti had an opportunity to appear as an extra in Spike Lee’s movie “Malcolm X” with Denzel Washington, and the comedy film “Who’s the Man?” starring Busta Rhymes, Ice-T, Queen Latifah and House of Pain. Soon enough, P. Diddy discovered Ashanti and signed her to his record label called Bad Boy Records. However, Ashanti did not stay with Diddy’s label for long, as she went to join other labels, including Epic Records and Murder Inc. However, Ashanti’s her activities added to her net worth.

It was with Murder Inc. that Ashanti became a famous singer. Discovered by the founder of the label, Irv Gotti, Ashanti soon released her debut album under Murder Inc., which turned her into a major superstar. Considered to be one of the best albums at the time, “Ashanti” made a significant contribution to Ashanti’s fame as a singer, as well as to her net worth, and opened many future opportunities. Since then Ashanti has been working with some of the most known musicians in the industry, including Jennifer Lopez, Akon, Nelly, R. Kelly and others. .

A year after her successful debut, Ashanti came out with “Chapter II”, her second studio work, which did as well as its predecessor. The album produced three singles, and with over 326,000 copies sold in its first week, was certified Platinum by the RIAA. So far, Ashanti has released five studio albums, the most recent being “Braveheart”.All have added considerably to Ashanti’s net worth.

In addition to her singing career, Ashanti has been making appearances on television screens and starred in “Resident Evil: Extinction” with Milla Jovovich and Mike Epps, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Law & Order: SVU”, as well as other television series. Again, her net worth has grown steadily from these activities.

In her personal life, Ashanti and rapper Nelly had a nine-year relationship which ended in 2012. Ashanti has a history of supporting charities and causes, including against domestic violence, tsunami and hurricane disasters, and cancer research.
