Silento Net Worth $5 million
At a young age, Silento was already very interested in music and was involved in various music endeavors at his school. He made his first steps in the music industry through YouTube, on which he released the single “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” in 2015 with the help of Bolo Da Producer. The music video went viral within one week and would gain over 2.5 million views on YouTube, plus he also released the song on Vine and it also found popularity there. This opened up more opportunities for him, and he was then signed to Capitol Record which would eventually increase his net worth significantly, as Capitol helped him release his single with a music video. Eventually, the song would peak at the third spot of the US Billboard Hot 100. Within the same year, Silento made an appearance at the BET Awards with the cast of the show ”Black-Ish”. He also performed the single at “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve” on 31 December 2016.
Since finding popularity, Silento has been heard in other songs as a featured artist. He was a part of the song “Dessert” by Dawin which would find Platinum Status with ARIA, and contributed to the songs “Girl in the Mirror”, “Emoji”, and “Slide”. In 2017, he became a featured artist for the Marcus & Martinus song entitled “Like It Like It” which is a part of the album “Moments”.
He’s won a few awards and got nominated for a few more as well. In 2015, he won a Soul Train Music Award for Best Dance Performance for his hit single, and was also nominated for a Teen Choice Award and MTV Music Video Award, and for a Billboard Music Award and BET Award. During the 26th Seoul Music Awards, he was given a Global Collaboration Award thanks to the song “Spotlight” with Punch, all of which did no harm to his rising net worth.
For his personal life, nothing is known about any romantic relationships of Silento. He’s very active on social media, having more than 88,000 followers on Twitter, and a Facebook page with over 590,000 likes. His pages are updated regularly. In 2017, his passport was seized, leaving him banned to travel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates after failing to repay a club promoter for a non-appearance at his club; he performed at the club to lift the travel ban.
