Lou Bega is a son of a Ugandan father and Italian mother, and he grew up in Italy and Germany, where his father studied biology at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Bega went to a German primary school, and later travelled to Miami, Florida and briefly lived in Uganda.

When he was 13, Lou founded a hip-hop group, but then he signed a recording contract with the label Lautstark. In 1999, Bega’s debut album called “A Little Bit of Mambo” was released, which peaked at No.3 on the Billboard 200 and achieved triple-platinum status in the US alone, but with over 10 million sales worldwide. The success of the album in itself made Bega a millionaire, and so significantly increased his net worth, while the single “Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of…)” topped the charts in over 20 countries, securing him a Grammy nomination in the process, along with other notable awards, and a large increase in his net worth.

In 2001 Bega recorded his second studio album ,“Ladies and Gentlemen”, but it failed to repeat the success of its predecessor, as it went relatively unnoticed. His next album, “Lounatic” (2005) also didn’t chart in any official national music chart, and neither did “Free Again” in 2010. Most recently, Bega has released “A Little Bit of 80’s”, the album consisting of covers of classic hits such as “I’m So Excited” (1982) (The Pointer Sisters), “Red Red Wine” (1968) (Neil Diamond), “Smooth Operator” (1984)” (Sade), “Vamos a la playa” (1983) (Righeira), and “Karma Chameleon” (1983) (Culture Club); this was much more successful, and has contributed significantly to Bega’s net worth.

Bega has given numerous live performances too, including in such cities as Tokyo, Moscow, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, and the United Arab Emirates. He has also appeared on TV in such programs as “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “The Martin Short Show”, “Access Hollywood”, “Ally McBeal”, “Motown Live”, and “Queen Latifah” among others, also adding somewhat to his wealth
Regarding his personal life, in 2014 Lou Bega married his longtime girlfriend, Jenieva Jane, with whom he has a daughter. The family currently resides in Berlin, Germany.
