Shakira – humble beginnings

Before we get into Shakira ‘s net worth, it is worth mentioning that she started from humble beginning just like most other world renowned celebrities. Born 2nd February, 1977 in Colombia, the singer, songwriter, actress, producer and dancer began her music career while still studying at school. Her start was not exceptional, save of course for her belly dancing abilities.

She began rising into international stardom in 1990s after gaining considerable fame in her native Columbia and Latin America. The singer who is of Spanish and Italian descent had success with her first two albums in Columbia, but she did not gain much international attention. It was not until she decided to make her own music brand that she became successful internationally.

A number of online media outlets and magazines estimate Shakira's net worth is $140 million, other sources claim she’s worth somewhere around $230 million. Our own estimation based on the most recent information about her career and earnings, however, puts Shakira’s net worth at an estimated $220 million.

Some of Shakira's achievements include taking the honours as highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, having sold between 50 and 60 million albums, according to Sony.
