    I hereby bless all the 11 eminent and notable Nigerians who made this exclusive list. I am decreeing and praying for Aliko Dangote to become the World’s richest man in the soonest possible time. African Entrepreneurs will dominate the world because we are here to stay. Thank you Naira Brains for this post.

    May the winds of Prosperity avail us all much good.

      Hey you there….I think you should change that prayer you just made on this post! You are praying for them to be the richest? Who says you yourself cant surpass them? If everybody prays that kind of prayer, nobody will be rich! We all would be mediocres. We will leave them to keep exploiting us. I myself dont wish them bad but I think you should change that statement using yourself as d point of contact. Most of the people on this list are not christians, this makes muslims to boast that Allah is blessing them more than our Lord Jesus does to his people. You should be praying that you would some day appears tops on this. Pls think more positively………God bless You!

    Some of your info are incorrect. Sayyu Dantata is not a cousin of Aliko Dangote, rather he’s his half-brother as both are the sons of Dr. Mariya Sanusi Dantata.

      This is not meant to be an exhaustive list. We try to showcae the richest 11 in 2011. However we also carry more research to expand the list. The challenges of access to information and record keeping also affects compilation of lists like this.

  4. I want to be associated with Aliko Dangote for the funding of my NGO’S projects.
    They need to know how peace must reign in our nation Nigeria.

    Also for my personal development and some community development.

    Thank you.

    Best regards
