A year later, he appeared in “House Party 3” (1994) and the same year he made his breakthrough with his role in the TV comedy “Sister, Sister”, which performance earned him a Young Artist Award for Best Youth Comedian in a TV show. During the ‘90s Houston starred in sitcoms “Family Matters” and “The Parent Hood”, in which he played himself. He also had a cameo role in the film “Good Burger” in 1997, and appeared in a few “Destiny’s Child” videos such as “Jumpin’, Jumpin’” and “No, No, No Part 1”. All these projects added to his net worth.

Marques then starred in a film written and directed by his manager Chris Stokes, called “You Got Served” (2004). For this performance, Houston was nominated an MTV Movie Award in the category of Best Dance Sequence. From 2005 to 2006 he starred in his own TV series, “Cuts”, a role that earned him a Teen Choice Award nomination for Choice TV Actor – Comedy.

Houston went on to pursue a solo career, and released his debut album “MH”, using his birth name, in 2003. The album reached number 20 on the Billboard 200 and number five on Billboard’s Top RnB/Hip-Hop Albums, thus increasing Houston’s net worth. Houston has released five more solo album, confirming his successful career as a musician. Since he is still active in the entertainment industry, his net worth continues to grow.

Quotes

#Quote
1My manager Chris Stokes has been my mentor since I first started out in this business and when we were preparing to do the album, we agreed that it should be an opportunity for me to show my strength as a singer.
2It's not too 'left' from what I've done before with IMX. The difference is that this album is more about my own personal feelings and situations I've been in.
