Dangote still richest man in Africa-Forbes

President/CEO, Dangote Industries Limited, Aliko Dangote for the 7th year running, maintained his spot as the richest man in the black continent with a staggering net worth of $12.2 billion, according to Forbes.
This estimation reveals an increase of $100 million from a year ago.
