In this 2021 Forbes list of top 10 richest persons in Africa, we see Nigerian Aliko Dangote retain his spot as the richest man in Africa with a net worth of $10.3billion.
Dangote became the richest man in Africa for the 8th time in a row although this year saw his net worth drop from $12b in 2018 to $10b in 2019.
Aliko Dangote makes his money majorly from Cement, Food commodities, Sugar etc.
With a whooping rise in his net worth this year, Globacom chairman, Nigerian businessman, Mike Adenuga rose to the rank of the second richest person in Africa.
From $5b in 2018, Mike Adenuga’s net worth rose to $9.2 billion in 2019 making him the richest man in Africa after Aliko Dangote.
Mike Adenuga, a silent achiever, primarily makes his money from his telecommunication network, GLO, which is Nigeria’s third largest network with over 12,000 towers and millions of subscribers all over the country.
Over the years, his company Globacom has also established itself as the largest data network in Nigeria. Little wonder it is very popular among the youths, especially students.
Adenuga also invests in Oil with the company Conoil and real estate. He looks set to overtake Aliko Dangote as the richest man in Africa any time soon.
