Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, also known as Wale, is a well-known rapper who has a net worth of 5.5 million dollars. Do you want to know how Wale managed to make all this money? Keep on reading to find out the secret behind Wale’s net worth. 

  • Wale was born on September 21, 1983, in Washington, D.C where he was also raised. His parents were immigrants from Nigeria. He attended high school in Washington and later continued to pursue higher education from Robert Morris University and Virginia State University on football scholarships.

He wasn’t satisfied with his playing time, which is why he transferred to Bowie State University from where he dropped out to focus on his music career.

  • Growing up, his family didn’t have money, which drove him to make money through music. In 2006, he started making mixtapes and recorded his first song called “Rhyme of the Century”, which was played on several local radio stations.

After his first song, he signed a deal with a small record label, and dropped his first hit single called “Dig Dug (Shake It)”. 

  • Wale started getting mainstream media coverage and also toured with Mark Ronson who is an English singer in 2007, due to which many major record labels reached out to him for signing a deal with him.

He signed a deal with Interscope Records for 1.3 million dollars, however, the label dropped him after the failure of his debut album. This didn’t stop him from following his dreams.

  • He performed at a big concert before Rick Ross, and his performance managed to impress Ricky Rozay. Moreover, he also made just as many sales as Rick Ross.

Ricky Rozay and Wale hit it off from there, and Wale signed with Ross Mayback Music Group in 2011. 

Wale is also an entrepreneur and made more than 5 million dollars in 20122. Whenever he goes out on tours he pays for all his expenses as he likes being independent. He also did a collaboration with Lady Gaga, which helped in boosting his music career as well.
