Kanye West’s net worth surges back to $400 million

Renowned multi-industry creative and African-American businessman Kanye West has experienced a rapid rebound in his net worth, surging back to $400 million within 20 days after a temporary dip of $2 million, attributed to the revaluation of his private assets.

Forbes, a U.S. business magazine that monitors the fortunes of ultra-high net worth individuals, revealed that West’s net worth has surged by $2 million within a month, from $398 million on March 23 to $400 million at the time of writing this report.

The bump in West’s wealth follows a dip of $2 million just twenty days ago, which compounded the $1.6-billion wealth loss he experienced last year when Adidas cut ties with his brand, Yeezy due to a series of anti-Semitic remarks he made in October 2022, sparking widespread outrage and leading to the deactivation of his social media accounts.

Following his suspension from Instagram and Twitter, West announced his intention to acquire the social networking platform Parler from its parent company, Parlement Technologies Inc, asserting that platforms such as Instagram and Twitter unduly restrict users’ free speech.

He explained that Parler, a conservative social networking platform, is a refuge for individuals who, like him, have been penalized by larger platforms, offering a space for those who have been oppressed by the “thought police” to express their opinions freely.

Despite facing recent setbacks, including a $2-million net worth decline just 20 days ago, Kanye West continues to be one of the richest Black individuals not only in America but globally.

With a net worth of $400 million, which includes his real estate holdings, cash, a music catalog, and a five-percent stake in Skims, the shapewear company founded by his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, West ranks as the 2,649th richest person in the world, according to Forbes.
