Nigeria's Business Mogul Aliko Dangote Still Africa's Wealthiest

Aliko Dangote remains Africa's richest man and the richest black man in the world for nine years in a row, with a net worth of more than U.S.$10 billion. The Nigerian businessman's fortune is primarily built from his company Dangote Cement, although he started his business empire by selling commodities such as sugar, salt, and flour. Dangote Refinery has been under construction since 2016 and is expected to be one of the world's largest oil refineries once complete.
