Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote shares that even though he descended from a wealthy family, he did not get a kobo of their wealth.

The Nigerian billionaire recently surpassed Johann Rupert from South Africa to become Africa’s richest man.

He admitted in a new interview how his great grandfather was the richest man in West Africa in the 1940s.

His grandfather was also rich and even his own father was a rich businessman who combined his business and politics.
