Meet Africa’s Richest Man And What He Does To Get $Billions!

There are types of riches I know of, the inherited and self-made, Aliko Dangote is one of the richest men that made their wealth through sweat and hard work, Dangote is a Nigerian billionaire and known as the richest man in Africa and the 67th richest person in the world with net worth of $16.5 billion, according to forbes.

The 58-year-old billionaire  comes from Kanu state, Nigeria, Dangote was born and raised in a muslim family, he became interested in doing business in his early age when he was still in primary school, he used to buy cartons of sweets, then sells them just to make money at that early age.

Its true, he’s Africa’s richest man !

He owns the Dangote Group, which was established in 1977 as a small trading company, today Dangote Group is a multi-trillion naira company operating in Nigeria as its headquarters and other branches in countries like Cameroon, Togo, South Africa, Ghana, Benin, Zambia and Tanzania where it has just opened a cement plant.

Dongote Group is now more than a trading company, but it’s the largest industrial group in Nigeria which includes Cement manufacturing ( Dangote cement ), Dangote flour, Dangote sugar refinery, Freight, Food processing, Breweries, confectioners and they’re also  major soft drinks supplier in Nigeria.

My view on African billionaires:

We have many problems in Africa such as poverty, diseases, lack of education and etc, i wonder why would billionaires like Bill gates in America come in to support whenever there is an out-break for example Ebola that hit west Africa especially in Liberia, we also have billionaires in Africa that are more than able to help fellow Africans, but they’re always quiet when people are seriously dying.

I thank the Zimbabwean businessman, the founder and chairman of Econet wirelessStrive Masiyiwa who supports over 40,000 orphans with educational initiatives aswell as sponsoring students at different Universities in US, China and UK and with the help of other leaders, he also set up the first ever Pan-African Fund Raising campaign known as Africa against Ebola Solidarity Fund.
