Even though he’s humble enough to drive himself, it isn’t wise.

I think the man is genuine and helping his country a lot by providing jobs, a foundation to give back. I find the host really rude, trying to trick him with stupid question of corruption etc. I believe that African themselves bring down their own people, specially succesful one. If you want to succeed, you have to be happy for the one that are !!

African -Nigerian money stacked in corrupt foreign banks and used to develop other countries. Nigeria is not corrupt. Send all African money back to Africa

Ebenezer Ohunyon (3 months ago)
The humble talks aside...Dangote is very good with his numbers...he has all the figures and projections right at his finger tips... I am pretty sure he audits all his companies himself.

Pls, don't forget that he is the only man in Nigeria that was allowed to do business for almost 200 million people because he is a Fulani man. Why won't he be the richest man in the world? Stop fooling us Ok.

Aliko dangotel, I would like to see dangote take over the building infrastructures and build the continent of Africa. Get rid of the Chinese. Show the world that Africa and African can do it. The Chinese are decivers. These people are there, not only to exploit our resources, but there next aim is to poison out people in food and medications, but our people are blind to see. They can't stand us ,pretty soon, they will be the next colonizers of Africa. Most of our leaders are dumb. They have no vision for their countries and their people. May aliko Dangote continue to build Africa.

Lot of confusion and the stories never fly straight the internet and main stream media YouTubers and YouTubers with their own channels with all these money makers Africa should be on top yrs ago,too much confusion,the world should be on point with all these university educated men and women every thing should run smoothly remember the universal education means they should know how to fix all problems.

There is nothing wrong about working hard and being rich as long long as you treat your employees right. USA slave owners have done that and no one is questionining their riches. Bravo rich man....

Corruption does not stop business....even innocent good businessman are involved somewhere in my homeland, Africa.
Chol Akuany (5 months ago)
To me, being wealthy is not the problem. A company built on Humility like Kodoo in Canada is likely to grow. Humility, neighbourly kindness and global network may help...after all, our World is now globalized. This is 21st century that requires human respect. Our women must be our number care.

In contrast to this humble & ethical guy, most Nigerians are known to be fraudsters, corrupt & arrogant. I wonder who’s their role model.

Bongani Mhlabi (5 months ago)

Uzoma Olumba, GRI (5 months ago)
He spoke like the wise man he is. side note: that interviewer was the worst i've ever seem. I should never allow him to fully complete his thought and was way too informal
adam hasan (5 months ago)
Spot on and he doesn’t keep his money in the bank like other Nigerians as he doesn’t want interest to be paid to him as Allah has forbidden interest and made commerce halal. The first thing Jesus peace be on him done when he came to power was to get rid of the bankers and interest. The reason why the housa Tribe is so envied and admired compared to euroba ebu for there intelligence education and manors communication. It’s because the housa are Muslim it’s simple as that. He is very close to Allah and his religion he is being intelligent with his answers in regards to religion saying it’s private.
Mikail Atolagbe (5 months ago)
Well, that's a side of Aliko. My office was opposite his marble house on VI and I used to see him drive -with his friend- to attend Jummaa service at Eko Hotel in the 90s. He should learn to live Islam the more and get married too. He should also live his word that no man can gain everything. I thank him for bluntly telling Folly Bah (AlJazeera) that corruption has no birth place, Europe, US, Asia are all harboring corrupt persons and promoting corruption in Africa.
Jose Luis Teixeira (5 months ago)

I don’t know what this man wants to say. Does he want to tell us that he is the only allowed by people in power to be the only cement manufacturer and the only rice importer with other essential commodities. Will he tell us that he was given a special exchange rate? Alike Dangote is not rich but holding money that belongs to other Nigerians. Rubbish.
