A DJ or a disc jockey is a person who is in the profession where one needs to play recorded music for a group of people or an audience. Disc Jockeys earlier used to record and mix music using discs but these days there is no particular medium that they use for playing back the music.
The credibility of a DJ lies in the kinds of songs he/she plays, whether he/she understands the demands and likes of the audiences and whether or not he/she mixes different tracks well enough.
Based on these factors, DJs become popular with the public. The famous and popular DJs are generally the ones who go on to become rich. This is why, the richest DJ in the world today is Tiesto who has a net worth of $75 million.
With a total net worth of $60 million, Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo is the second richest DJ in the world and plays house, disco and Nu-disco music.
Thomas Bangalter, who is DJ from Paris, France too has a net worth of $60 Million and is thus among the richest DJs in the world at the current time. Some others on this list are Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk and John Digweed.
