Dinah was born.
Ethnicity and family
Jane was born the eldest into a family of eight children, and supposedly spent her formative years in a four-bedroom house, living with 23 other people. Speaking about her ethnicity, she has a rich background, as she is of Polynesian, Samoan, Danish and Fijian heritage, but is actually blond with brown eyes, and is 1.73 meters tall and weighs 69 kg.
So just how rich is Dinah Jane as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, the singer has net worth of $3 million, with her wealth being accumulated from her six years long career in the previously mentioned field. In addition to singing in Fifth Harmony, she is a solo artist as well, which plays an important role in her finances.
X Factor and Rise to Fame
In 2012, Dinah auditioned for “The X Factor”, one of the world’s most prominent reality television series, which focuses on the outlook for new music prodigies. Originally, she auditioned as a solo artist and was featured in the “Teens” category, but after she was eliminated, the judges of the show – most importantly Simon Cowell – noticed her talent and vocal abilities, and she was called back to the stage alongside four other girls who had also failed to make progress as solo singers, and with whom she subsequently formed Fifth Harmony. Initially, her band mates were singers such as Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei and Lauren Jauregui, and the girls went on to achieve notable success, ending up in the third place, having not been able to reach the finale, but establishing their net worth.
Fifth Harmony released their debut extended play under the title “Better Together”, and it went on to sell more than 28,000 copies during its first week of release, eventually peaking at number six on the Billboard 200 chart, and featuring five songs such as “Don’t Wanna Dance Alone”, “Miss Movin’ On”, “Better Together”. In early 2014, Fifth Harmony announced that they would be making their debut studio album, and “Reflection” was released in early February 2015, featuring songs such as the title song, “Worth It” made in collaboration with Kid Ink, “Boss” and “Sledgehammer”. The album was heavily influenced by Beyonce’s music, and made references to powerful women such as Mariah Carey, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. The album proved Fifth Harmony’s big breakthrough, earning multiple certifications such as triple platinum in Brazil, having sold more than 120,000 copies, gold in Canada for selling more than 40,000 copies, and platinum in the United States for selling more than a million copies. Besides that, it did fairly well on charts in countries such as Norway, New Zealand, Portugal and Scotland, plus the majority of the internet sources reviewed the album favorably, including AllMusic, The New York Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Spin, altogether boosting Dinah and the group’s net worth.
In 2015, the group announced another album; Dinah herself and Lauren Jauregui co-wrote several songs for the album with Mitch Allen, Tayla Parx and Aaron Pearce, and it was ultimately named after the day they met in “The X Factor” – “7/27” – and was eventually released in May 2016, debuting at number four on the Billboard 200 chart, having sold more than 74,000 copies, and featuring songs such as “Work from Home”, “Write on Me”, and “All in My Head” which was made in collaboration with Fetty WAP. However, in 2016 Camila Cabello announced that she would be leaving the group, initially planning on staying in the group while trying to focus on her solo career, but as it wasn’t possible, she had to leave the group, and went on to achieve vast success in the music field, however, she remained in a poor relationship with the rest of her former group, with all of them gave contradictory reasons behind her departure.
Regardless, in the following period Fifth Harmony continued as a quartet, and their third studio album was entitled “Fifth Harmony”, released in late August 2017 and featuring 10 songs such as “Down”, “He Like That”, “Angel” and “Messy”, made in collaboration with writers such as Joshua Coleman, Jude Demorest, Harmony Samuels and Ryan Toby. Following the success of the group’s previous two albums, the third album received a generally positive response from critics of sources such as Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly and the New York Times. Despite the success that group has had, in March 2018 they announced their indefinite hiatus, stating that they wanted to focus more on their solo careers.
As of 2015, Dinah Jane auditioned unsuccessfully for the role of Moana in the movie of the same title. She was featured in “Boom Boom”, a song made by Red One, Daddy Yankee and French Montana. Subsequently Jane and Leona Lewis released a Christmas medley together.
Love life and relationship status
Dinah was previously in a relationship with Siope Folau, a high school football player. Later on she was rumored to be in a relationship with Nela Otukolo, however, they reportedly broke up in 2015, after he supposedly cheated on her. Subsequently, she began dating Jarryd Hayne, an Australian professional rugby player, but their relationship fell through as well. Some people believe that she might have dated Niall Horan, a former member of One Direction, but according to sources, she remains single. Being active in the entertainment field, Dinah is naturally active on social media as well. She is followed by an army of 2.5 million people on Twitter and 3.3 million on Instagram. She uses her accounts to communicate with her fans, and share her everyday life photos.
