Aliko Dangote: Here’s Why the Richest Man in Africa Had a Hard Time Finding a Woman

Aliko Dangote has everything a man could hope for in life. But he is missing something: a wife.

The billionaire who has already divorced twice is still looking for a woman at 62. In a recent interview with the Financial Times, Aliko Dangote revealed that despite his ambition to build a business empire, having a wife is also a priority.


However, Aliko Dangote says that he does not have time to look for a woman because he is too busy with his business.

“I’m not getting younger … but it doesn’t make sense to go get someone if you don’t have the time.” For the moment, we are really, really busy, because we have the refinery, the petrochemical and fertilizer companies and the pipeline to manage, ” he told journalist David Piling of the magazine.

He is the founder of Dangote Ciment, the largest cement producer on the continent, and owns businesses almost across the continent.

The cement company produces 44 million metric tonnes per year and plans to increase production to 33% this year.

Part of his wealth also comes from his stakes in companies manufacturing salt, sugar and flour listed on the stock exchange.
