Forbes releases 2019 list of richest men in Africa [See top 21]

Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote has retained his place as the richest man in Africa.

He remained number one on the newly released Forbes’ list of African billionaires.

He, however, lost almost $2bn compared to his last year’s worth.

The list was released on Wednesday.

Dangote’s estimated $10.3 billion net worth is nearly $2 billion less than a year ago.

Another Nigerian, Folorunsho Alakija was one of the billionaires, who suffered a drop in their net worth between last year and this year, as she held No 19 on the 20-man list.

The rating magazine reports that Alakija’s net worth dropped due to a decline in the value of one of Nigeria’s most productive oil fields.

Mike Adenuga, the owner of Globacom, emerged Africa’s 5th richest man. He is worth an estimated $9.2 billion.

Others are Nigeria’s cement mogul Abdulsamad Rabiu, who runs and owns the BUA Group, standing at number 16 on the list for the first time since 2015.
