With a net worth of $10.5 million, Indo-Canadian YouTube sensation Lilly Singh has made it to Forbes’ ‘Top 10 Highest-paid YouTube Stars of 2017’ list.

Singh, who delights fans with comedy sketches, is at number ten on the list, which is topped by British gamer Daniel Middleton, who made $16.5 million between June 1, 2016 and June 1, 2017, before management fees and taxes.

The comedian/rapper/dancer, who was also one of the highest-earning YouTubers of 2016, has gained a huge fan base of over 12 million YouTube subscribers. In 2017, she released her international and New York Times bestselling book, “How to Be A Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life,” and will also be featuring in HBO’s film adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451.”

In June 2017, Singh, who uses the pseudonym IISuperwomanII,’ was ranked number one on Forbes’ ‘Top Influencers’ list in the entertainment category.

The publication notes that Singh has “translated her inspirational video diaries into a six-figure advance on the New York Times bestseller, ‘How to Be a Bawse.’”
