About the Book

The New York-based Forbes magazine had not deemed it fit to include an African south of the Sahara in its List of World’s Billionaires in its 100-year history until 2008 when the name of Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote appeared worth $3.3 billion. In 2011, Aliko’s fortune jumped to astronomical $13.8 billion, a–544 % increase in the history of wealth creation. Today, this African is the world’s richest black person worth $16.1 billion.

How did he achieve this feat? What were the sources of his wealth? How did a -56-year old half orphan, who grew up in the arid dessert of Kano, northern Nigeria, invest a- $500 loan and turn it into the largest business conglomerate in Nigeria and West Africa in 36 years?

The authors of this book were in Africa for 16 months to investigate the story of this billionaire. The book is purely an independent research and a seminal work by the authors, who managed to resist censorship during their field work, and succeeded in presenting readers Aliko Dangote’s secrets of success which aspiring business people can learn from in the life history of Aliko Dangote, especially on how to start small and grow big. This is the first and only authoritatively-researched and comprehensively-investigated biography of Aliko Mohammad Dangote, the richest black person in the world.

To be fair, how much do you think this Book worth? This 520 pages eBook have actually been selling for N5,000, but for a very short time, we are selling this eBook for just N1,000. Yes, you heard me right, JUST N1,000. But mind you, it is only for the first 50 serious minded people who desire to learn from great men and who don't hesitate to grab opportunities like this while they last.

 

The Price will go back to N5,000 once we are able to sell to the first 50 future billionaires.
