Nigerian billionaire and the richest man in Africa Aliko Dangote has disclosed that he never inherited his wealth from his father and grandfather as some people have been made to believe saying he built everything on his own.
According to some messages that circulated some months ago, Dangote inherited some of his wealth from his parents and not that he started his empire with his own money.
However, Dangote speaking during an interview made it clear that he never got anything from his father but he worked hard to achieve everything he has now.
Aliko Dangote is now valued at $14B by Forbes and this makes him the 95th richest person in the world.
He has the largest cement company in Africa and his refinery in Ibeju-Lekki when completed is set to be one of the largest in the world.
In the interview, he stated that his father was also rich but he did not allow the wealthy to get into his head as he strove to build his.
