Who is Matt Pokora? If you don’t know him, he’s a world-renowned singer and dancer who has had many hit songs in France. He also starred on the reality show La Ferme Célébrités on TF1.
Now that we’ve established his fame let’s talk about what he makes from his singing career. With all the money coming in, it only makes sense to ask, “What is Matt Pokora’s net worth?”
The French sensation was born in the suburbs of Paris, France. He began taking dance classes at an early age. The star also learnt to play many different instruments, including keyboards, drums, bass guitar, and violin.
By age 13, he had performed for audiences across Europe. Pokora used his self-taught style of playing a variety of musical genres on piano only using one finger! In 2009 Matt auditioned for Popstars. They didn’t reach the boot camp stage two weeks into the competition because he messed up a song.
After elimination from the show, he decided that it wouldn’t stop him from pursuing music. So he packed up all his belongings and moved out from home at 15 years old. Then Matt started touring around France, performing at different venues every night.
Matt began his career with a French RnB group called Mic Unity. They never released an album or any official singles. But the group did perform in front of over 100,000 people during different concerts.
After Mic Unity’s disbandment, the star decided to go solo. He began working with famous producers such as “Cassius” and “D.J. Medhi.” He later signed a deal with Capitol Records France, which allowed him to release his self-titled debut album. After four years with them, he released “MATT.” The lead single of the album was called “Catch Me If You Can.”
His career didn’t really take off until months before releasing his sophomore studio album titled: “Music Is My Life,” when he participated in season six of the French television show France’s Got Talent.
His single from this album titled “In My Life” became a massive hit in France. It reached number one on the top singles charts, performing well throughout Europe.
Matt followed up his success with a third studio album entitled: “Only One” in February of 2014 under Capitol Records / E.M.I. Music France. The first single of “Et Alors! (What Are You Waiting For)” was previously featured as part of his soundtrack for the French movie Les Profs back in 2012. It went straight to #14 on SNEP Top 200 Albums Chart.
The dancer-cum singer has also participated in several other reality show competitions, including winning the fourth season of French Dancing With The Stars. Currently, he works with Warner Music France and continues to tour around Europe, performing throughout different countries.
