Benny Medina net worth: Businessman Benny Medina has an impressive net worth of $20 million. Benny Medina generated his net worth from managing the some of the most legendary acts in the music industry. He also owns Medina Company. The son of the legendary jazz drummer, Ahmad 'Benny' Medina, started out as a lead singer and co-songwriter of the R&B/Disco group, Apollo back in the late 1970s. Medina then went on to become the head A&R for Motown - at the age of just 24. Medina wrote and produced materials for Motown greats like Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Billy Preston, Teena Marie and Rick James. He then went on to Warner Bros. Records, collaborating with Ray Charles, Babyface, Chaka Khan, Madonna and Fleetwood Mac. Life after Warner Bros. grew from strength to strength, as Medina formed a management and production company, Medina/Pollack Entertainment, alongside long time friend Jeff Pollack. They are the brains behind the films: Booty Call, Above the Rim and Maid in Manhattan. Despite his impressive collaborations with big acts, Medina is best known for launching and managing Jennifer Lopez's career. He also aided Seam Combs with his fragrance and clothing empire. Although Medina has an eye-brow raising track record, he was fired by Brandy, Usher and Mariah Carey.
