The billionaire philanthropist last made the Forbes Africa list in 2016, when he occupied 14th position on the 24-man list with a net worth of $1.85 billion.

Three other Nigerian billionaires also made the 2024 Forbes Africa list, with Aliko Dangote occupying the top spot and retaining his title as Africa’s richest billionaire with a net worth of $13.1bn.
