Swiss Raphino said...

Stella in 5 years time my name will be among the top ten richest in Africa by God grace.

They are the immovable cabal. Their names will never change. When they die their children will take over. They get richer while Nigerians get poorer. Nothing short of violent change or break up of Nigeria will move them.

**By the way, I'm sure FGN will soon build railway line to Chad Republic.

#The real measure of our wealth is how much we'd be worth, if we lost all our money*

Forbes Africa is as corrupt/inaccurate as the headlines. With the exception of few of them, majority of these people listed wealth were inaccurate. And not to mention that tsome of them were big time debtors to a bank wirh non/servicing loans both home and abroad. Some of them has rmany banks and in a way that affected people losing their livings too. Too much hype over some debtors with old gory

Oma maranma said...

I'm going to make this forbes list one day and it will be ' the richest woman in Africa who is under the age 30'.... so help me God.

And I believe there are also anonymous Nigerian billionaires in dollars who rather remain silent. The ones up there will attract foreign investors shaa

Anonymous said...

Anon 12.13 You nailed it perfectly. That is exactly what some of them does. Is all big hype lure international Investors. Forbes international is accurate but Forbes Africa is all about the hype. No public record or paper trail that support their wealth in Africa. Is all hearsay

Anonymous said...

Sorry but is the banks that will take over their so called fake wealth. Same happens to Arisekola when he died.

Billionaire indeed, yet they owe all the existing and dead banks. Globacom is owing service providers salary for eighteen months, the security guards at his Ondo state cell site are on strike presently.

Yup! It's all part of the marketing to international partners and investors. You sabi book.

Where are the Abiolas? One of his daughters works in my office building and will tell you her surname before her first name - just to prove a point. An empty point #IMO 24 years ago everyone would have been kissing her ass for calling that name. Nothing is cast in stone oh. This wealth rotates and most don't even train their kids to be able to manage wealth properly. So chill... and just work hard.
