Emmanuel Jal Net Worth $1.2 Million

South Sudanese musician and former child soldier, Emmanuel Jal has an estimated net worth of $1.2 million. The music genre-straddling African Christian gospel rapper Emmanuel Jal was born in the village of Tong in southern Sudan around 1980. At age of seven Jal was forced into a Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) military training camp in Ethiopia, where he was trained to be a soldier, participating in military conflicts before he was even a teenager. From that point seven was smuggled by his mentor and protector Emma McCune into Nairobi, Kenya. Following McCune’s death, Jal became one of the millions displaced by Sudan’s violent civil war. McCune’s friends and associates saw to it that Jal received an education, and he was able to attend Tala Academy. He started singing around 1998, and was shortly active in his local church choir, and formed numerous musical groups, such as the Reborn Warriors, his present gospel hip-hop group. Jal collaborated with Abdel Gadir Salim, a Sudanese Moslem musician, for the record Ceasefire, which was released in 2005, and contained a re-record of “Gua.” Since Jal was from the south of Sudan, and Salim was from the north, the cooperation of the two musicians symbolized the kind of unity many have hoped for in the Sudan battle, and Ceasefire was an important supplication for peace and sanity.
