Nigeria’s richest woman, Folorunsho Alakija has lost a title she has held for years; Africa’s richest woman. It was a title she held along side fellow Nigerian, Aliko Dangote who is Africa’s richest man.
The daughter of Angola’s president, Isabel dos Santos now holds the title after her net worth soared to about $3.5B. That makes her the richest woman in Africa, with $1.2B more than Alakija who is still worth an astonishing $2.5B
Isabel has shares in oil and diamond companies, two commodities her country, Angola is rich in. She is however currently under investigation for corruption.
