The Black Billionaires 2014

Founder and Chief Executive of the Dangote Group, billionaire Aliko Dangote, gestures during an interview with Reuters in his office in Lagos, June 13, 2012.

Of the 1,645 people who made it to the 2014 FORBES list of the World’s Billionaires, 9 of them are black, up from 7 a year ago.

Nigerian cement tycoon Aliko Dangote is still the richest black person in the world, and he’s the richest by a long shot at $23.3 billion – $9.7 billion richer than Saudi-Ethiopian billionaire Mohammed Al-Amoudi.
