Andwele Gardner, better known as Dwele, has a net worth of $6 million. This talented singer and songwriter was born in 1978 and raised in Detroit. Dwele is also a talented record producer. Dwele started playing the piano at the age of six, before trying the trumpet, guitar, and bass.

Dwele’s net worth is associated with his collaboration with various artists such as Common, Kanye West and J-Dilla.
