It's vital to acknowledge and respect that the bulk of today's wealthy celebrities were raised in modest conditions.
According to a common proverb, "it is easier to climb a ladder on an empty stomach than it is on a full stomach." This is sometimes true, but not always. These celebrities have worked extremely hard to rise from obscurity to popular names.
Without a doubt, Oprah Gail Winfrey is one of the wealthiest women in the United States. On the other hand, the author did not always have it easy. The 67-year-old was born and raised in an impoverished family in a small Mississippi town. Oprah Winfrey, who was raised by a single mother, confessed to being abused as a youngster. However, her net worth has increased to around $2.5 billion.
2. Okafor John
While we are unfamiliar with Oprah Winfrey's name as Nigerians, we are familiar with John Okafor's. While the 59-year-old is now prosperous, he has faced his share of adversity. He had previously asserted that his family was the poorest in his village when he was a child. He even stated that after his father died, their house was blown over by a blast of wind, forcing them to take up residence as tenants in their hamlet.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio is an accomplished actor best known for his performance in the Academy Award-winning film 'Titanic.' His family was impoverished, and despite his current success, he hailed from a poor background. According to People, the 46-year-old actor grew up in a gritty Los Angeles neighborhood overflowing with narcotics and prostitutes.
4. Nicki Minaj
Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, best known by her stage as Nicki Minaj, is unmatched when it comes to rapping. On the other hand, the 38-year-old musician grew up in a working-class home before gaining stardom. She was compelled to labor in a variety of positions following high school. And she has since amassed a net worth of well over $100 million.
Olamide Gbenga Adedeji is another Nigerian on our list from a working-class household. The 32-year-old artist revealed that he was forced to leave school owing to financial constraints. He achieved success in life, however, only through his own work and dedication.
6. Justin Bieber
Justin Drew Bieber is widely regarded as one of the world's most successful and rich Canadian singers. However, not everything was once as simple as it is now. The 27-year-old was born into an impoverished family and was abandoned by his father when he was a child. However, the music mogul has risen above his hardship, and his music career appears to be on the upswing.
7. I Go Dye
Francis Agoda, professionally known as 'I Go Dye,' is without a doubt one of Nigeria's most successful comedians. On the other side, the 42-year-old comic has stated that poverty motivated him to pursue a career in comedy.
Céline Marie Claudette Dion is unquestionably a music industry veteran. The 53-year-old Toronto native was born into a working-class family. She was the youngest of fourteen children, making her the family's youngest member.
