Sensible people should have money, but not in their hearts. Contrary to common assumption, true riches is not obtained by accumulating a lot of material possessions, but rather by controlling one's consumption.
The "King of Cement," Aliko Dangote, was once more voted as the richest person in Africa in 2022. He is reportedly valued $13.4 billion.
Dangote is heavily invested in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, consumer goods, oil and gas, and others.
He was born on April 10th, 1957, to a prosperous Muslim family in Kano State, Nigeria.
He began developing his company, the Dangote Group, more than 30 years ago. When Dangote was 21 years old, he took out a $3,000 loan from his uncle to start importing and reselling agricultural products in Nigeria. He took control of a little store and made it into one of Africa's most prosperous businesses.
Dangote, like the majority of billionaires, is a very private person who dislikes boasting about his wealth on social media.
It is estimated that his current Abuja residence is worth $30 million (R450 Million). He's been there for more than twelve years now.
Because they prevent Dangote from concentrating on what is truly important in life, luxury are to him a waste of time and money. His whole real estate portfolio is in Nigeria.
Dangote may discover ultimate luxury inside his all-white house.
The traditional design and ornamentation of the house have a timeless quality.
Dangote watches business-related television in his living room a lot. TV is entertaining to me. Although I frequently watch Bloomberg TV, I also like other business news programs.
Following a long day of managing his multibillion dollar business, Africa's richest man retires to bed.
Being mobile and able to go wherever my career takes me means that I spend less time here than I do in my office.
He has received visits from Bill Gates, President Goodluck Jonathan, and possibly many more African heads of state.
This is their stunning kitchen, which they regard as the center of their house. The cuisine prepared there nourishes friends and family all across the world in body, mind, and soul.
The dining area is where the family eats together and where he occasionally hosts important business visitors.
The Dangote house is among Africa's most opulent homes, and its owner is an example to us all.
Aliko Dangote's life may teach us many vital lessons, one of which is that creativity pays dividends.
The only thing I want for you for the New Year is to get rich. And may you have immense joy and happiness this year.
