As for the day, Boris Kodjoe net worth is estimated at $8 million dollars. Although this is not very impressive compared to the fortunes of the highest-paid Hollywood actors, $8 million is a hell of a lot of money. So we thought you might be interested to know how Boris managed to generate this kind of fortune.

Back in his teenage years Boris Frederic Cecil Tay-Natey Ofuatey-Kodjoe (yes, this is his full name) was considered a talented and perspective tennis player. In fact, he has studied marketing at Virginia Commonwealth University on tennis scholarship. Who knows, maybe if he continued to pursue career in this field, today Boris Kodjoe net worth would be even greater than $8 million due to his achievements as an athlete. But I guess this just was not meant to be… The future millionaire has suffered a back injury which killed his tennis aspirations. Following this, the tall and well-built man started working as a model. Soon he was noticed by television producers and landed his first role as Dexter in The Steve Harvey Show.
In the year 2000 the actor appeared in a relatively successful film Love & Basketball and started filming for television series Soul Food. I would say that the role of Carter in this later show was fatal in Kodjoe‘s life. First of all, it garnered him the first significant nomination (for NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series) and second, it was on the set of this show that Boris has met his current wife Nicole Ari Parker Kodjoe .
As far as we can tell, the cast of Soul Food received pretty solid pay-checks for their work on the set. But it was marital infidelity, not Boris Kodjoe net worth that has kept his name in the headlines over the past few years. I guess if their family is going to work out, Nicole will have to draw strength and peace from the wisdom shared by her own husband: “Don’t ignore the past, but deal with it, on your own pace. Once you deal with it, you are free of it; and you are free to embrace your life and be a happy loving person because if you don’t, the past will come back to haunt and keep coming back to haunt you.“ The problem is, this is easier said than done and forgetting the past is way more difficult for the one who has been cheated on, than it is for the cheater.
As every couple in the world, they will keep having problems and Boris Kodjoe net worth, as huge as it is, cannot change this fact. What could improve the atmosphere in their family is the shift in attitude towards relationship, commitment and marriage.
