Nile Rodgers Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Nile Gregory Rodgers was born 19 September 1952, in New York City, New York, USA. Nile rose to the prominence as the co-founder and leading guitarist of the music band Chic, which was one of the most popular during the disco era. Nile has also released several solo albums, though he was much more successful while producing and performing together with a number of artists including Sam Smith, Disclosure, Avicii, Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk, Madonna, Duran Duran, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Sister Sledge and many others. Rogers has been active in the entertainment industry since 1979.

Nile Rodgers Net Worth $70 Million

So just how rich is Nile Rodgers? Sources have estimated that the net worth of Nile Rogers is as high as $70 million, with the majority of his wealth coming from creating, performing music and producing other artists.

Nile Rodgers began his career as a guitarist playing in recording sessions or on live performances with such artists as Parliament Funkadelis, Betty Wright, Ben E. King, Aretha Franklin, Maxine Brown, Apollo Theatre and Joe Raposo. This experience encouraged him to found his own band. In 1970, he and Bernard Edwards founded The Big Apple Band, which was a band of back-up musicians, and they performed with such bands as The Jackson 5, Ashford & Simpson, Luther Vandross and The Boys. Due to their professional skills they became popular, and wanted to continue the career of the band, so to avoid confusion with another musician, Walter Murphy, the leader of the band called The Big Apple Band, in 1977 the name of the group was changed to Chic.

Since foundation, they have worked under the labels Sumthing Else, Warner Bros, Atlantic and Buddah. During their long career – as despite short pauses the band is active up to date – they have released 21 single, eight studio albums, 12 compilation albums, and two live albums. The 70’s were the golden age of the band as their first three albums called “Chic” (1977), “C’est Chic” (1978) and “Risque” (1979) received certifications according to the sales in the United States of America, Canada and the United Kingdom. They have also peaked in the very high positions on the American R&B chart.

What is more, Nile Rodgers has released four solo albums: “Adventures In The Land Of The Good Groove” (1983), “B-Movie Matinee” (1985), “Outloud” (1987) and “Chic Freak and More Treats” (1996), however they were not as successful as those released with Chic. Another important source of Nile’s net worth is producing, which he has been involved in since 1978, helping many artists to pursue their dreams. He produced Sister Sledge, whose album “We Are Family” (1979) topped the American R&B chart and was certified Platinum in the USA and Gold in the United Kingdom, Diana Ross and her album “Diana” (1980) whose album has reached the same success, Debbie Harry and the album “Koo Koo” (1981) which was certified gold in the USA and Silver in the United Kingdom, and many other successful artists.

In 2011, Rodgers announced that he was ill with prostate cancer. Luckily, in 2013 he reported that everything had cleared concerning the illness. Nile is married to Nancy Hunt.
