Jay makes it into the 2003 Sunday Times Rich List

Added on Sunday 02 November 2003
The Sunday Times newspaper (UK) has just published its 2003 Pay List - a list of the 500 people in the UK who get paid the most money. Jay just makes it into the list at number 489 after earning £1.569 million last year. The article in the newspaper says: "Jay Kay, the party-mad funkster who was named GQ magazine's most stylish man of the year, hasn't released an album in two years - but total sales from his previous five with his band Jamiroquai are at the 20m mark. He says he received his first royalty cheque back in 1992, for £5,000, and that he went out and bought a BMW for £1,000. As the amounts of his royalty cheques have risen, so has his taste in cars. He now owns 18, with pride of place going to a £500,000 Ferrari Enzo. We go with the most recent accounts for his company, Jamiroquai Ltd, which show he took £1m in dividends and £868,662 in salary. Almost enough to afford four Enzos."
