Move Over Oprah, Nigerian Folorun Alakija Is Now The Richest Black Woman In The World.

According to Ventures Africa , Oprah Winfrey is no longer the richest black woman in the world, Mrs Folorun Alajika is. Forbes said in November that the billionaire oil tycoon is worth $600 million, but Ventures Africa put her worth at about $3.3 billion. They said her 60 percent stake in a $10.74 billion oil well is worth $6.44 billion. Ventures Africa also claims that Mrs Alakija’s real estate portfolio is worth over $100 million, and that she acquired a property at One Hyde Park for $102 million, and also owns a Bombardier Global Express 6000 jet which she bought earlier this year for a reported $46 million.
Na wa oo!
