How did Haywood Nelson earn his money and wealth?

Haywood Nelson made his foray into acting in the early 70’s with a role on “As The World Turns”. He was born in New York, USA. It was the popular soap opera “As The World Turns” that embarked his way into the professional acting career in the early 70s. He was further present for the next five seasons of the show. This gained him popularity and fondness among the audience.

He then moved on to be a co-star, guest star and major roles in projects such as Mixed Company, Sanford and Son, Grady, Kojak and The Brady Bunch Variety Hour. It was the character he played in “What’s Happening!!” in the year 1976, that paved his way into the hearts of millions. He later went on to act in plays like “The White Shadow” and “Evilspeak”.

The year 1985 gave him the opportunity to take back the role of Dwayne Nelson in the series, “What’s Happening Now!” “Hey, Hey, Hey,” became a favorite, memorable character moment by all who watched him then and now. In the early 90’s he guest-starred in ‘Dragnet’, after which he decided to shift his focus on to a career that was behind the scenes.

Nelson still works in entertainment. At present, he is working as a digital media executive at IEG Holding.

Since 2014, he is not a part of behind the scenes anymore. In the transitions from that of an actor to a business person, he worked in talk shows, TV shows, and interview programs as well. Nelson today is the main point advisor in his present wife’s business SKYEWOOD. His wife Khnadya Skye aka Skye Nelson is also listed as Nelson’s Attorney at SAG-AFTRA. It is also believed that his wife is certainly and unswervingly connected to the Royal Families of Saudi Arabia and Dubai. This is the reason behind Nelson is rarely seen and is extremely private these days. Nelson hasn’t seen or spoken to his former “What’s Happening!!” colleagues, since 2014. In the face of the reality that there are similarities between Nelson and the late Prince Rogers Nelson, yet they are not related, both Nelson and his present wife have been publically verbal on this matter strongly.
