Jidenna Net Worth 2020 – Jidenna is a Nigerian-American hip-hop artiste, songwriter, and music producer. He shot into the limelight in 2015 with the release of the smash hit track “Classic Man” which ultimately earned him his first Grammy nomination.
This multi-talented music star was born Jidenna Theodore Mobisson on the 4th day of May 1985 in Wisconsin Rapids to a Caucasian mother and an African father.
His first name “Jidenna” comes from his father’s Igbo ethnic group of Southeastern Nigeria and it literally means “hold on to the father”.
Jidenna spent some part of his early childhood in his father’s native country, however, the family was forced to return to the US in the early 1990s after suffering a kidnap attempt. Upon their return to the US, the family lived in different parts of Massachusetts including Norwood and Milton.
Jidenna had his high school education at Milton Academy and there he formed a rap group Black Spadez. The talented youngster had his first experience in songwriting and music production with the group and prior to their graduation in 2003, they released a self-titled debut album Black Spadez.
He originally enrolled to study sound engineering at Sanford University, however, his interest was later swayed and he ultimately majored in “ritualistic arts”.
Upon graduation from college, he gained employment as a full-time teacher whilst also pursuing his music career on the side. His persistent efforts eventually paid off and he got a recording contract with Wondaland Records owned by Janelle Monáe.
Jidenna swiftly set to work on his music after landing the record deal and by January 2015, he dropped his first official single Classic Man, a collaboration with labelmate Roman GianArthur.
The song was a monster hit as it received massive airplay in the US and other countries of the world. Classic Man got onto the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart at #49 and later reached the peak position of #22.
