"I need a new wife" - Africa's richest man Aliko Dangote admits
The business magnate admitted he needed to calm down and find true love
“I’m not getting younger. Sixty years is no joke. But it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time.
Right now, things are really, really very busy, because we have the refinery, we have the petrochemicals, we have the fertilizer, we have the gas pipeline”
The 61-year-old however, admitted the need to calm down and find true love.
Aliko Dangote who was born in 1957 is a Nigerian business magnate, investor, and owner of the Dangote Group, which has interests in commodities in Nigeria and other African countries.
As of March 2018, he had an estimated net worth of US$14.1 billion.
