"Aliko Mohammad Dangote: The Biography of the Richest Black Person in the World"
Accolades From Around the World Praise ‘Aliko’ Biography by Moshood Ademola Fayemiwo and Margie Marie Neal
This is his story: Aliko Mohammad Dangote: The Biography of the Richest Black Person in the World. The authors spent 16 months in arid northern Nigeria to visit Dangote’s ancestral home and spoke to ordinary people to find out how he managed to acquire his staggering net worth of $16.1 billion in a nation where the average citizen lives on less than $1 a day.
How did Dangote invest a $500 loan and in 30 years turn it into the largest business conglomerate in Nigeria and West Africa? Aliko Mohammad Dangote doesn’t trade in oil and has never been in government. He is the largest employer of labor in Nigeria and West Africa, and is the second largest employer in the African continent. He manufactures cement, sugar, milk and pasteurized milk, noodles, macaroni, spaghetti, tomato paste, fruit juice, flour, bread, rice, and the essential daily food needs of nearly 600 million Africans. He made all his money in Africa and today is the richest black person alive, because he did what Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton did in the USA.
