Ladi Delano: Nigeria's Youngest Billionaire [pictured] by lalasticlala(m): 12:08pm On May 11, 2015
Ladi Delano is a 35-year old Nigerian serial entrepreneur who made his first million as a liquor entrepreneur while living in China.
At the age of 24, in 2004, he founded Solidarnosc Asia, a Chinese alcoholic beverage company that made Solid XS, a premium brand of vodka. Solid XS eventually had a 50% market share and went on to become a mainstream liqour brand and was being distributed in over 30 cities, pulling in $20 million in annual revenue.

Delano then sold the company to a rival liquor company for over $15 million and put his funds into his next venture – a real estate investment holding company with a focus in mainland China.

Today, Delano is the co-founder and CEO of Bakrie Delano Africa (BDA) – a $1 billion joint venture with the Bakrie Group of Indonesia. Bakrie Delano Africa stands as the Bakrie Groups’ investment partner in Nigeria.

So far, the Indonesian Conglomerate has provided over $900 million worth of funding for investment in Nigeria and Bakrie Delano Africa identifies opportunities for investment in mining, agriculture, oil & gas, and executes the investment processes.

He was on Forbes’ list of the youngest millionaires to watch in Africa in 2012 and is the youngest Nigerian billionaire.

He didn't become a billionaire by just 'talking'; he became one by 'doing'. People talk and talk and talk about plans, but when the time comes to implement their plans, they run off like scared chickens. That's one big lesson life has taught me: too many people are scared shitless of taking risks.

I thoroughly agree

You offer people an opportunity to grow good money but most people find every objection in the world, not to take part.

The education systems are responsible for this. They train people to be wage earners who are satisfied with mediocrity

The few of us who break away from that life limiting psychology are the ones who will grow and earn.

I wish you all much life transforming financial success! smiley

While some Nigerians are working hard and making it big, others are just here shouting "GEJ MY MENTOR" "FAYOSE MY ROLE MODEL". If you fall into that category, my guy, you are dancing Kukere with your destiny because these so called role models don't give a f*ck.

Let's dream big and work hard. 1+1 will equal 2.

He probably has a god father somewhere who is providing all those funds
the only way a young guy can get rich overnight without a god father is through internet
Expecially at the age of 24? its not possible
he might be one of the beneficiary of Nigeria's stolen funds
