The wealthiest man in Africa, Aliko Dangote, has revealed how he struggled to make his own money, saying he didn’t inherit a penny from his late father who died when he was 8-year-old.
The Nigerian billionaire business magnate revealed this during an interview session where he said that though his father left a will before dying, he gave all that he left to him to charity and worked hard to have his own money and not depend on what his father left for him.
According to him, his father died at the age of 8 years and he struggled to make it on his own to become the richest man in Africa.
He is still topping the chart as it appears that Africa isn’t growing and no one is able to compete with him for now in the continent.
Aliko Dangote’s words might sound untrue to some persons, but the fact that he worked really hard to be where he is today can’t be disputed.
This burgeoning news platform understands that Aliko Dangote is one person who doesn’t boast of his riches just like some billionaires across the globe and his kids are hardly seen boasting of their father’s wealth or flaunting it on social media.
