The two separated though, and Sade‘s mother moved her two kids from Africa back to the United States. At first the Singer had to stay with her grandparents and moved in with her mother only at the age 11. After graduation from high school Sade enrolled at Saint Martin’s School of Art. But if you think she has chosen to study singing, you are mistaken. The teenager chose fashion design and even worked as a model for a while. However, while studying at the art school Sade has also realized just how important music is in her life and entered a band called Pride. That’s where she met guitarist/saxophonist Stuart Matthewman, who was meant to become her long-standing creative partner. The word about the new talented singer and her performances spread incredibly fast and soon there were not only thousands of people wishing to see them, but also a several recording companies ready to offer Sade a contract. She signed Epic Records in 1983 and the rest of her newly-formed band in 1884. Following this, Sade net worth just shot straight to the sky.

With songs like “Smooth Operator” , “Your Love Is King” and “Hang On to Your Love” , it sold over 1 million copies in the United Kingdom, more than 4 million in the United States and over 6 million worldwide. Eventually Diamond Life has garnered Brit Award as an album of the year and became one of the highest-selling albums of the 80s. Needless to say, it has significantly increased Sade net worth.
