Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll aka Kygo is a Norwegian DJ and record producer who has a reported net worth of $25 million, and he isn't even 30 yet. A lot of that is down to his tireless work rate, which he has managed to keep up even without any shows to play around the world in 2020. 
 
In April of this year he released ‘I'll Wait’ with vocals by Sasha Sloan, and then in the same month put out 'Freedom' with Moroccan-English singer Zak Abel. News of his ‘Golden Hour’ album followed in May, as did another track, this one with OneRepublic, called ‘Lose Somebody’. Another single followed with Valerie Broussard, who he has previously worked with on ‘Think About You’, as did yet another single and then a massive remix of Tina Turner's ‘What's Love Got to Do with It’. 
 
All of this recently helped the young star pass four million fans on Instagram, while he has also reported that his ‘Golden Hour’ album has already passed one billion streams on Spotify.
