The year 2024 has kicked off on a bad note for Nigeria’s industrialist, Alhaji Aliko Dangote as he lost his throne as Africa’s Richest Man to South African business mogul Johann Rupert.

According to a recent list released by Forbes Magazine, Dangote lost his position after suffering a decrease in his wealth from $13.5 billion in 2023 to $9.5bn at the beginning of 2024.

In the 2024 rankings, Johann Rupert & Family’s wealth went from $10.7bn down to $10.3bn

Similarly, Nigerian billionaires Rabiu Abdulsamad and Mike Adenuga have lost their spots in the billionaire rankings released by the financial magazine.

An analysis of the Forbes list showed significant wealth declines in the billionaires club.

The wealth of Nigeria’s Mike Adenuga moved him to the tenth position, while Patrice Motsepe, who was in the top ten in 2023, didn’t make the top ten richest men in 2024

One striking change in the Forbes wealthiest people in Africa list is that no woman made the top ten richest list at the start of the year.
