Four Nigerians have emerged top as the most influential Africans according to Africa Report. Among the top 100 list, these Nigerians who are said to be powerful and influential in business, politics, art and being peacemakers, were identified as part of the top 10.


Seizing the number one spot in the top 100 influential Africans is billionaire and business magnate, Aliko Dangote, who has built a world-class enterprise from the ground up. Following in the number four spot is talented and multi-award winning Nigerian writer and novelist, Chimamanda Adiche.

One of Nigeria's favourite singer and superstar, Davido clinched the number seven spot, while Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God emerged as the eighth most influential African in 2019.

Here are the four Nigerians who made top 10 of the top 100 most influential Africans on Africa Report.

Known as the richest black man in the world and Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote of Dangote group is said to be worth over N3 trillion. With plans to build an oil refinery worth billions of dollars, Dangote, is undoubtedly one of the most powerful and influential men in the world of business and has even been said to be more powerful than President Muhammadu Buhari, as he controls a large part of the Nigerian economy.

2. Chimamanda Adiche

Ace Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adiche has won several awards for her novels including Purple Hibiscus, Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah. The writer has had her books translated in over 30 languages, has won the most prestigious awards in the literary world and has received 14 honourary doctorate degrees from top universities around the world.

Adiche is known beyond her writing prowess, she has engaged a global audience on racism, s3xism, feminism and human condition. Her speeches have been watched millions of times around the world and she has evolved from being a novelist to becoming a public intellectual.

3. Davido

Identified as Nigeria's pop idol, Davido Adeleke is said to be worth N5.7 billion. With his art, he has managed to influence Nigerians globally and even spared his voice for political engagements and elections.

Davido is one of the first African musician to sell out the O2 Arena in London, making history and cementing his name in the superstar hall of fame.

4. Pastor Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye is the founder of five-million member Redeemed Christian Church of God and was the head of the church until 2017, when he resigned following the law that put a 20-year cap and 70-year-old limit on leadership of non-profit organisations.

Said to be worth N15 billion, the man of God remains one of the top religious leaders in Nigeria and thus, one of the most influential men in the African continent.

cool

Congrats to you all. I'll be on that list pretty soon. My present situation is no determinant except positively.

In today's world and business environment as a whole, the importance of online marketing can never be over emphasized. This is because those who have taken advantage of the opportunity can joyfully testify of significant increase in patronage and building of clientele in their respective businesses. However, what some business owners fail to understand is that, they need to do aggressive marketing if they must stay in the business, otherwise, they may be knocked out of business by competitors. Besides, you never can tell where your next customer/client will come from. This is why it is pertinent you grab every opportunity to your advantage by doing marketing of your products and services. At the same time, some of you may not have time to do this by yourself. Then why not allow me handle this for you? The expected results will be there for you to see. 

In summary, what is that product or service you have that needs online marketing, then I can resourcfully handle that for you.

The mod who brought this to front page was probably sleeping while reading through.

Why will you say MOST INFLUENTIAL AFRICANS then end up putting just Nigerians? How does that correlate?

Nawa oh

So Buhari's influence doesn't go beyond Daura? Even David Adeleke is far more influential than him. I'm sure, even Yinka Ayefele and Small Doctor are also more influential than Baba Ruga.
