About AshantiAshanti Shequoiya Douglas, commonly known by her first name, is American singer, actress and record producer. She gained international fame in 2002, with a release of her first eponymous album, which received Gold certification after one week in the stores. It made Ashanti the best selling new female singer of all time, leaving Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys behind. The same week Ashanti set one more record: with “What’s Love” and “Foolish” reigning over nearly every radio station in U.S., Ashanti became the first female artist to simultaneously hold No.1 and No.2 spots on Billboard Hot 100. Ashanti net worth is currently estimated at $40 million.
As if two top singles were not enough, soon Ashanti’s third single “Always on time” climbed to the top of the charts, making her the only woman in history that has ever accomplished this goal and the second artist after the legendary 60s band The Beatles.
