After having the tittle of richest man in Africa for nine consecutive years, Nigerian business mogul has finally been beat in what can only be termed as the shakeup of the list of the richest people in Africa. The list still contains the same old names and it is still predominantly male but one thing has changed though, instead of Aliko Dangote at the top, we now have South Africas Johanne Rupert as the Richest person in Africa.

Koos Bekker frrom south Africa takes the number ten spot. He is new to the list with a net worth of roughly $2 billion. Koos is the founder and CEO of the television company Mnet. South African seem to be doing quite good despite the pandemic.

Some are joking that Dangote's fall to second place was due to his little afares with women that went viral a few weeks ago. This is however not the case as the tycoon is still wealthy with a net worth of $7 billion dollars. Johannes Rupert just managed to outdo Dangote with a slight margin, his own net worth id at roughly $7.3 billion
