|The Richest Black Man In The World by DollarsNaira(m): 10:11pm On Jun 15, 2020|
Do you know who the richest black man in the world is? Most of you might. But for most people, especially black people, that fact might be buried in ignorance.
The truth is, there are just 13 black billionaires in the world according to the 2019 Forbes list. And sincerely, I feel that number is an embarrassment when the potential and natural resources of black nations are taken into account
1. Aliko Dangote - $14.8 billion
The richest black man in the world is no other person than Aliko Dangote. The same man that is the richest in both Nigeria and Africa.
He is the founder and chairman of Dangote Group, which is responsible for Dangote Cement, which is Africa’s largest cement manufacturer.
2. Mike Adenuga - $9.2 billion
3. Robert Smith - $6 billion
4. David Steward - $3.5 billion
5. Abdulsamad Rabiu - $3 billion
6. Oprah Winfrey - $2.7 billion
7. Strive Masiyiwa - $2.5 billion
8. Patrice Motsepe - $2.4 billion
9. Isabel Dos Santos - $2.3 billion
10. Michael Jordan - $2.1 billion
11. Michael Lee-Chin - $2 billion
12. Mo Ibrahim - $1.1 billion (tie)
13. Folorunsho Alakija - $1.1 billion (tie)
We would love to see more black billionaires in the world. Black people making financial progress is the change that can spur economic growth in black communities the world over. They are the foundational stones upon which a better economic future can be built and from which young black Africans can borrow both expertise and resources in forging a tomorrow that is filled with black billionaires.
