Mumba's Gotta to be rollin' in it...

Samantha Mumba is set to make a staggering 6m in the next 12 months by conquering America. The 18-year old singer stands to make a fortune from her movie roles, sell out concerts and album sales.

Samantha has become a major star in the States and lucrative movie role offers have been flooding in since she appeared in Stephen Spielberg's Time Machine.

A string of American arena concerts in the winter and the continued success of her debut album will make her enough money to live a life of luxury.

Last night a source close to the star said: "If Samantha plays her cards right she will be incredibly well off. There are multi-million dollar movie role offers already on the table and her album is still selling mountains. There is also a strong possibility that she will tour at the end of the year in the States. If that all comes together she's looking at big money - around $10m."

Samantha has become a big rival to American pop beauties including Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Last year Britney was estimated to have earned $17m and Christina $14m.

Now Samantha is set to make the same big money. The singer has been living in LA for the past six months as her career continues to soar in the States. Her album, Gotta Tell You, has stayed consistently in the Billboard top 50 for over six months.

She is currently in Oakland, California, in a middle of a 20-date sell out tour with boy band sensations N'Sync. Last Christmas Samantha admitted that she had made virtually no money despite topping the charts in the UK and Ireland.

"I'm not rolling in the money by any stretch of the imagination," she said. "People think that as soon as you land a record deal you automatically become a millionaire - but it just doesn't work like that."

But all that is set to change. She will spend the rest of 2001 in America, returning home to Dublin for only a few short breaks. Her manager Louis Walsh said that the teen-star would be as big as Mariah Carey in time. "She has what it takes and the Americans are crazy about her. I was in LA with her a couple of weeks ago and everyone was going Samantha Mumba mad. People kept telling me she would be as big as Mariah Carey or Janet Jackson and she will, The money is good but I don't think people know how much pressure she is under - she only gets to sleep for about five hours most nights. She rarely comes home and there's always another interview to do or appearance to make."
