    Mkwasi Aliko Dangote wa Nigeria anashikilia usukani na $3.3 billion simple man no bling bling

    Namba 2 Oprah $2.7 billion
    Patrice Motsepe South african $2.4 billion

    Mobutu, the Congolese president, and Sani Abacha, the Nigerian military leader, were probably billionaires when they were alive but Forbes could never confirm this (according to Forbes magazine's Kerry Dolan)

    From 2001-2003, Forbes listed Black Entertainment Television founder Bob Johnson as a billionaire, but dropped him after his fortune was split in his divorce from his wife Sheila. He returned to Forbes international rich list in 2007 with a net worth of $1.1 billion USD. In 2008 Johnson's wealth dropped further to approximately $1.0 billion USD even.

    Afro-multiracial billionaires have also been identified. Forbes international richest list includes Michael Lee-Chin of Canada, who is of Chinese and Jamaican ancestry. Saudi-Arabian billionaire Mohammed Al Amoudi has black ancestry because his mother is from Ethiopia, but rich lists classify him as Arab. Also included is Mo Ibrahim, a British billionaire of Sudanese Nubian ancestry.
