Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo was raised in his hometown; he is the descendant of Francisco Manuel Homem Cristo, a famous Portuguese military and political figure. He was interested in music from the age of seven, and by the age of 14 he could already play the electric guitar. He went to the Lycée Carnot school, where he met Thomas Bangalter in 1987. They became friends and soon decided to establish a band called Darlin’, an indie rock trio, along with Laurent Brancowitz.

Although they didn’t achieve any major success at the beginning and Brancowitz left the band, their accomplishments were described as ‘a daft punky thrash’, which gave them an inspiration to change their name to Daft Punk. Subsequently, the duo began making electronic dance music and started performing at local night clubs in 1992, which marked the beginning of an increase of Guy-Manuel’s net worth. Five years later, the duo released their debut studio album entitled “Homework”, which peaked at No. 3 on the French Albums Chart and No. 150 on the US Billboard 200, and sold more than two million copies. It consisted of such hit singles as “Around The World” and “Da Funk”, which topped the US Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart, adding a considerable amount to his net worth.

In 2001 out came their second studio album, “Discovery”, with such hit singles as “One More Time”, “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”, and “Digital Love”, among others. It achieved six gold and five platinum certifications, reaching No. 3 on the US Billboard 200. Moreover, they released the third studio album “Human After All” in 2005, which topped on the US Billboard Chart and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album in the following year. Most recently, the duo released “Random Access Memories” (2013), which topped on the charts in more than 30 countries; the album has sold more than three million copies worldwide and won several Grammy Awards in such categories as Best Dance/Electronica Album, Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, and Album of the Year. They collaborated with Pharrell Williams on the singles “Get Lucky”, which achieved diamond certification and won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year, and “Lose Yourself To Dance”, increasing his net worth by a large margin.

To speak further about Guy-Manuel’s career, he is also known as the co-founder of Le Knight Club, with Éric Chedeville. The duo released a number of singles, including “Intergalaktic Disko”, “Hysteria” and “The Fight” among many others, and two albums – “Waves” (2000) and “Waves II” (2003). They also established their own record label called Crydamoure, where he works as a producer. Thus, he produced the 2008 album “Sexuality” by Sébastien Tellier, and three years later “OutRun” by Kavinsky, contributing a lot to his wealth.

Speaking about his personal life, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo is married to Maar Beauregard, with whom he has two children.
