The compilers of the list describe Walls, his debut album as a success last year, and it states him to be worth a net £45m, the same figure 2020
Of Louis, it said: “Still only 29, Tomlinson became part of history in March when he was included in a timeline at the new Danum Museum in his hometown of Doncaster. “How could we not mention him?” said a tweet from the local council.
"The former One Direction star scored a success with his debut album, Walls, last year and is due to restart a tour postponed by the pandemic. He has gigs planned in Mexico, Australia and Europe, including in London in September. A streamed concert last December that sold 160,000 tickets raised more than £2 million for charities, including the food poverty.”

But they have not worked together as a group since 2015, although they have never announced a break up. Zayn Malik left the band five months before they announced a hiatus after five albums ad four world tours.
