Forbes will drop it's new list in a week. I been TRYING to tell these niggas about Dangote and Africa being in a better state than niggas wanna believe SMMFH. Africa (especially Nigeria) has a bunch of billionaires and they will continue to create more especially in this decade. In Nigeria's case they've found a system that works for them in churning out their countries potential and population.
There's a lot of black billionaries worldwide, it's just that Hip-Hop and Entertainment has niggas thinking Oprah, Jay-Z, Puff Daddy & 50 Cent are the only black people with money SMMFH. There's the following:
Femi Otadola ($1.2 billion)
Mike Adenunga ($4.7 billion)
Michael Lee-Chin ($2 billion, Jamaican born half black/half chinese I've met him and his family he identifies as a black man)
Aliko Dangote ($25 billion)
Patrice Motsepe ($4 billion)
Mohammed Al-Amoudi ($15 billion)
Mo Ibrahim ($1.1 billion)
Folorunsho Alakija ($2.5 billion, she is the richest Black woman in the world and also Nigerian)
Oba Otudeko ($1 billion)
Isabel Dos Santos ($2 billion, she's actually pretty cute too)
Hakeem Bello-Osagie ($1.1 billion)
INB4 "but they're not American" - another bunch of dumbass niggas locked into the "my world is my neighborhood syndrome". Get a passport and travel, see the world. It's a lot of people who are also wealthy that aren't even on the forbes lists. The U.S. will get many more black billionaires but it takes time. I listed black billionaires from every part of the world such as Canada, Britain/UK, South Africa, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia and other places.
Most of those billionaires are in the business of investing and natural resources. Many of the Nigerian billionaires made their fortune in oil, whereas other Africa billionaires made theirs in natural resources (mining), others in other places made it in technology (Mo IBrahim), cement, finance, retail stores (also counts as real estate) and much much more.
Nah nah nah fam LOLOLOLOL I came at yall cuz yall was tryna take the one weak part of what I was saying and using it to discredit my whole point FOH. It's one thing to criticize someone but its another thing to actually be politically correct. Go listen to Stoute's interview again and tell me he's not intentionally cracking and dissing 50 Cent. He's not one of the most influential artists of this time ? GRODT ? G-Unit ? 35 mil sold ?? Revolutionizing the mixtape game ?? Really Stoute ? Nigga was talking shit. 50 Cent has broke artists and dropped hit records of which I listed. The only issue is "if it's enough to yall" that's why I beg the question what does he have to prove to yall and WHY at this point ?? I brought up Cube to make a contrast between their careers in terms of success. Cube, Master P, Dr.Dre, OutKast none of these niggas have had a hit in a long time but do we discredit their contributions to music as a whole ? What does current hits on the chart mean to their careers when they're solidified.
I had to come down on yall, and call you on being subjective without looking at the overall view of things, if yall don't like 50 Cent just say that and keep it moving. Ok fine the nigga aint have a hit in the top 10 in a while but he's not really even in music at the moment and Stoute was politically incorrect and disrespectful and got checked for it - that's what we was talking about here. If you're gonna go out and say something about anyone you outta be held accountable for what you said especially if it's disrespectful. Had that been you he was talking about I'm sure you would have seen Stoute too.
