Africa’s Billionaires of 2010

March 12, 2010 by  

It must be nice to be Ethiopian Self Made Billionaire, Mohammed Al Amoudi, Africa’s Richest man. His wealth grew by a billion despite the economic downturn. It is that time of year again and Forbes has put together a list of the World’s richest. On it are 11 Africans 4 from one family in Egypt, 4 from South Africa, 1 from Sudan, 1 from Nigeria and 1 from Ethiopia.

There was 1 new addition to the list this year, Samih Sawiris, son of Egyptian billionaire, Onsi Sawiris whose other 2 sons are on the list as well. Nigeria did loose a billionaire this year, Femi Otedola who had a bitter disagreement with fellow billionaire Aliko Dangote last year. Despite some major challenges, Dangote still made it on the list as the 9th richest man in Africa.

    Wat use is it to be stinking rich if those smelling it don’t even have one meal a day. Why cant they give for the sake of giving not to escape huge taxes. To mahomed: wat of ur fellow country men dying in hunger.

  23. sowunmi kolawole nathaniel on July 28th, 2010 7:07 pm

    If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free, If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.

  24. ENDERASU on August 4th, 2010 7:28 pm

    There is a big difference between the first African and the second in africa billionaire. THE MUSLIM GUY FROM ETHIOPIA HAS 10 Billion and
    THE SECOND GUY FROM UN KNOWN COUNTRY HAS ALMOST HALF 5.6

    THE LAST GUY WHICH IS ME HAVE $ 340 in my checking and $ 45 in my saving.

    AND I WAS THINKING I WAS LIVING A GOOD LIFE. I SUCK, I AM NO GOOD. I AM JUST A LIVE IN THIS WORLD SO THIS BILLIONAIRES DOES’T FEEL LONELY.

  25. Benjamin Ogugua on August 5th, 2010 3:22 am

    Billionaires are greediest human on earth..never dream of becoming one unless u are a greedy and unsatisfied human money is d root of all evils and all these billionaires are like small gods in their respective entities.. Love of god is service to humanity,oneness and equality.. None of these billionaires had won d respect Nelson madiba mandela has 2day without riches mandela is acknowledged and honoured by d U.N.. Viva madiba.

  26. Benjamin Ogugua on August 5th, 2010 3:37 am

    Honour people for their service to humanity and not for their wealth.. Human ought 2 give helping hands to others rather than suppressing them and emerging as superior human bcos of their wealth.. How many billionaires have two heads or four legs or even two private parts? None.. Being a billionaire is unhealthy,share ur wealth if u have too much and save souls.. Dont be a rich bastard..

  27. Francis on August 6th, 2010 5:52 am

  52. Ngoan on September 17th, 2010 8:24 pm

    Don’t be haters ok? these people either worked hard for their money or inherited it. Whatever they do with it is nobody business…you want money? look for legal venues ,opportunities to make it to the top!!
    Trust me these people give a lot to their countries but unfortunately, the leaders mismanage the funds. You cannot blame them for it. Furthermore, Africans are tougher on their own countrymen mostly if the latter are rich since they always relate it to misappropriation of funds or illegal activities.
    Bear in mind that you have a lot of Africans who strive to truly emerge amongst the best. In that journey, they have to cross lot of barriers…which is not easy.
    Let’s just congratulate them and wish them the best!!!!

  53. emmanuel on September 19th, 2010 11:30 am

  67. Mike on October 11th, 2010 8:29 am

    While money is essential to afford basic necessities in life, it does not absolutely guarantee true happiness in life. However, true happiness is derived from a life of contentment and pleasing God.

    Thus, any one who desires to be rich must do that genuinely without hurting or exploiting others. This is unsentimentally true because why should someone be on the run or hidding when his riches are genuine?

    Money is good.so dangote with all his govt favours cant even make it to top five

  73. McSally on October 15th, 2010 4:25 pm

    I’m happy for these men whom I beleive were wide awake when a lot of people were enjoying their sleep. I was happy to see that a nigerian is richer than some of my favorites, Donald Trump, Alan Sugar…I still want to see the Adenugas, the Otedolas on the list. Above all, I strongly look forward to seeing ME on the list. That – will happen. Long live Africa. To some of you who have made it to the list, please do more charity works and God will continue to increase your wealth.

  74. henry okeke on October 17th, 2010 1:19 pm

    I thank God he still make men rich today as He did in Solomon.Though none of these richmen can be compared with that of Solomon’s glorious forbes. My prayer is may these men give God the glory as the source of their wealth and also help the poor around them and beyond.Money is not given for self alone because what you give out is your investment in God’s record. Giving is lifespan key.Thank God Africa can now be mentioned among the whites as rich people.

  75. Ogundowole oluwatosin kehinde on October 18th, 2010 10:24 am

    Can african citizen be the richest man in the world, i believe i would be in the future. Good luck to me.

  77. Antoine Toga Nimely on October 19th, 2010 9:17 am

    Halleluyah!!!!!!!!!!!! I m so so so happy for these men of valour. They all,except the heirs among them, have 1 thing in common they are aggressive hustlers. While I meditating I talk with Warren Buffet and Stanley Ho in the Metaphysical realm. Common men won’t undrstand wht this mean. I feed on inspirations frm men such as these. By actually contacting the Cosmic Energies of Chocmah, Binah, Netzach, and Hod unto the Malchut of any mortal soul,any1 can achieve same or more provided the one makes right move in the right place and at the right time because the Ein Sof is impartial. Right now I have more than 1.1Million Dollars n counting . It feels so HyperGood to be Rich. All my Thanks to the Ineffable EIN SOF. It is simple but not easy becuz the word ”easy” and ”simple” have two different meanings. My Love to the World. Curiousity and the right Knowledge furthers

  86. Sir Reu on November 1st, 2010 6:27 am

    I doubt if Aliko Dangote is the richest Nigerian. Because i believe most of his investment are funded by fellow Nigerians. The wealth of some notable Nigerians are above $2.1 billion dollars. Mind u,i’m not including the bad guys,who have been stealing from the country’s treasury. To me,the “Bad Generals” are the richest dudes in Naija and other African countries alike!

    i thank God for the Billionaires, remember, they’s a least among you that is yet to be by all. What i believe is that God is the maker of Men, He will make known to my world.

  93. Ivan Louis Pinno on November 14th, 2010 1:24 am

  94. PaulEk IV on November 17th, 2010 4:26 am

    This man claiming to be the world richest man, what a joke when most of Ethiopian are dieing of hunger. why cant he use his money/wealth to better the life of his country men? it makes me laugh?
    I give kudo to the family from Egypt (the 4 brothers). anyway I think i will be on the list next year ranking. watch out.
    Wow the world richest man goes to Carlos Slim.

  96. ultan nche on November 18th, 2010 2:10 pm

    its good but to think that there are no Cameroonians there defeats the purpose all together and in my opinion i think the statistics should be taken all over because i think that our Cameroonians ministers have been forgotten

  100. lanre mabogunje on November 24th, 2010 11:41 am

    only one person had been listed so far from Nigeria,which i disagree with.I would love to mention some people who are far richer than Aliko Dangote.They include:
    1.Chief Olusegun obasanjo
    2.General Ibrahim Babangida
    3.Alhaji Aminu Dantata & family
    4.The ABACHA’S FAMILY

  101. Yahuza Andani on November 25th, 2010 9:55 am

    OHHHHHHHH MY GRACIOUS, I NEVER KNEW OF THIS HAPPENING, AM VERY MUCH IMPRESSED ABOUT THE GREAT MEN ABOVE.NOT ALL OF THEM BUT ACTUALLY WITH THOSE WHO MADE THE WEALTH OF THEIR OWN EFFORT AND NOT INHERITANCE MEANS. AM SAYING THIS BECAUSE AM STILL YOUNG AND AT THE AGE OF 23 BUT WORTH 96 MILLION DOLLARS AS I SPEAK.I OWN A PURE WATER FACTORY ACROSS AFRICA AND SOON I WILL BE AMONG THE TOP 3 RICHEST IN AFRICA.NOT JUST THERE TO STOP, I WILL ALSO BE COM PITTING WITH THE TOP TEN IN THE WORLD.I HAVE SOME NEW MULTI MILLION BUSINESSES THAT WILL START OPERATING EARLY 2011.SO WATCH ME COME OUT SOOOOOON!!!!

  102. Emmanuel Quarshie on November 25th, 2010 12:59 pm

    Its nice to see Africans been billionaires but we ought to aim higher because the sky is the limit these billionaires are supposed to help Africa develop and stop been selfish.

  103. Courage on November 27th, 2010 6:50 am

    Stupid Billionaires. Selfish people. The two nigerians listed, ask them if they have any foundation for the poor man. Dangote is expploiting Nigerians with his business. God bless Bill Gate, he spend millions annually just to help Africans why some greedy Africa richest men are busy stealling from their.

  104. Samson S on November 29th, 2010 4:59 am

    Talking about Ethiopia.. there is some thing that is kept in everyonse mind posted for long -the 1984 drought. But there were a lot worse times happened some where else in the world after that…. War had long been our enemy in our development. 2nd opulated country in Africa,, next to Nigeria.

    We still have to go a long way but are climbing up in a good way. Easy to tell about our status if one got the chance to be in Addis- Seat of AU. Everything u see is made by ourselves..not by any conial power…. Mohamed had also made some contributions for the delopment of his birth country….yet to argue about whether if it is as expected. ……..i hv bn in some parts of Africa for vacation and i am also currently some where in West Afrika -Lome and witnessed how much we progresed. Really proud to be an ethiopian. I could witness colonial powers left black spot to z black world….. Africans should wake up and stand by ourselves!!! Cheers!!!!!!

    Talking about Ethiopia.. there is some thing that is kept in everyonse mind posted for long -the 1984 drought. But there were a lot worse times happened some where else in the world after that…. War had long been our enemy in our development. Good to note that we are the 2nd in population size- in Africa,, next to Nigeria.

    We still have to go a long way but are moving forward fast. Easy to tell about our status if one got the chance to be in Addis- Seat of AU. Everything u see is made by ourselve’s..not by any conial power…. The self made Richest man in Africa-Mohamed had also a hand in the development of his birth country….yet to argue about whether if it is as expected. ……..i hv bn in some parts of Africa for vacation and i am also currently some where in West Afrika -Lome and witnessed how much we(Ethiopia) progressed. Really proud to be an Ethiopian. I could witness the black spot left to z black world….. Africans should wake up and stand by ourselves!!! It won’t be long that we see African’s in the top 10!!!!!

  106. Jeff on November 29th, 2010 12:41 pm

  108. ernest moses on December 1st, 2010 5:46 pm

    The real billionaires are those who serve as a bridge to reach the needy and poor in society. we thank the creator of the universe for the lives of these men and thank him as well for making them build great industries to better the lives of the people of Africa. God bless Africa.

  111. Kenneth on December 5th, 2010 4:14 pm

    In that list most of them have inherited fortune from their families,only few of them have made their own money thats why poor people will continue being poor and rich will always be rich and after they die they leave richness to their children!

  112. irene on December 6th, 2010 1:29 am

    I am an old age pensioner (white nogal). Grew up in an orphange, always been poor, but always did a decent days work. I get sick just reading about these so-called billionaires!! One should work for your daily bread and nobody, and I mean nobody ever worked that hard that they are entitlerd to that kind of money earned by the sweat of poor people!! Furthermore I am disgusted by some of them flaunting their wealth, living in obscenely big houses and extremely vulgar lifestyles!! No wonder the masses are up in arms. HOW CAN ANYBODY THAT BELIEVES IN A GOD FEEL GOOD ABOUT THIS? The poor suppressed blacks. But most of these billionaires are black!! How convenient to always blame others for their woes. I feel sorry for all the poor – white or black. Obviously you don’t have a conscience that is why you sleep well at nite. LET THEM EAT CAKE!!!

    I am very happy to see Africa people becoming billionaires. Africa is becoming better and better. These are great news. I am very happy for these guys. I want to be one of them one day. Although I don’t have a business now, I still working for some but I believe that all things are possible with those who believe. I have been trying to start one but lack of cash is standing on my way. I respect these guys because they give hope that in life you can become anything no matter where you are. I wish them more and more blessing. I love Africa and I love my country South Afrca.

    Thank you

    I don’t think the survey was done accurately. Why? Because it cant be unless there be at least a single president from one republic like Zimbabwe. MUGABE is rich, no doubt. What about all the other political leaders?

  140. ozoemena nenis on January 28th, 2011 9:23 am

    I don’t see this as an accurate list coz it does not have seriours African tycoons like Mr. Mosses Katumbi of Congo DR. He owns T.P Mazembe football club. It also lacks names like Fredrick Titus Jacob Chiluba the former Zambian President.

  142. adeniyi on January 29th, 2011 3:38 am

  162. Lateef on March 8th, 2011 3:36 am

    I corroborate the fact that billionaires are the greediest people on earth; especially in the case of my country(Nigeria).It is people like them that would not not make our railways function properly because they own all the trucks; they are the same ones that would put us in darkness just because they make heavy income from importing generators, these same people would not make our texile industry work because they are the sole importer of used clothes from abroad!! May God save us from the hands of the billionaires very soon.
    Sincerely, I don’t envy them at all just because millions are not benefitting from their ill-gotten wealth.

  201. GOMBA on May 8th, 2011 3:00 am

    Really proud of Dangote, at the rate he is going he’ll soon be among the first five.
    keep it up, Dan! and remember to carry others along, the more the merrier.
    Better for Nija to have twenty Billionairs on the list than to have one with the wealth of twenty. Will be joining you guys in a bit.

  203. Fuduh-Fuduh on May 12th, 2011 1:46 am

    Give you less than 2 decades from now, and my surname will top the list. Watch out for my boys& girl filling up a thin gap that I left to reach the peak.

  204. Abeiku Okai on May 31st, 2011 12:55 am

    We should nt jxt drm of being part of d list bt also ask d story behind their wealth. They did nt achieve on silver platter. Even those who inherited have to struggle in maintenance of d wealth. Do u kip ur penny and do nt jxt spend? Do u hav mor than 1 financial outlet? Do u beliv n trust in ur God n urself? Then u ar already on d list jxt as I am.

    It is a great to have a wealth, but one should use his wealth in a matter that is helpful to the society and the continent as a whole. And if one believes God and The Hereafter he should not forget to pay 2.5% of their wealthy to the neediest people every year.

  214. amir on July 1st, 2011 1:31 pm

    It is sad that so many billionaires in AFRICA, and people are dying, women, men and children of hunger every day ! If they all work together,maybe many lives can be safed. They will lose nothing by trying.

  222. Ethiopian on August 16th, 2011 3:31 pm

    The #1 is Ethiopian, haha, we ethiopian are so superior to mankind. Hey, lets not mention that we have the most growing economy in the world, now, 2011. People in the world, give us some time and we will be competing with around the globe.
    The reason we were in poverty and hunger is because at that time we did not have much knowledge of anything. Also in europe, france, 2/3 of the people died because of hunger, why?, the people were uneducated and couldn’t find a sulotion.

    We ethiopian are the father of human kind, we gave birth to all humans.
    So one day we shall not rule the world, but rather, be on the top of the world.

  223. Paulnelson on August 24th, 2011 2:18 pm
