Folorunsho Alakija has now been confirmed the richest black woman alive. This is due to an estimated $500 million gap she now has over Oprah Winfrey.
Alakija’s wealth is now estimated at $3.3 Billion while Oprah is worth an estimated $2.7 Billion.
Even though people still refer to her as a fashion entrepreneur as a result of her own fashion brand, Supreme Stictches, Alakija made her fortune from oil. Her company, Famfa Ltd reportedly has 617,000-acre oil block.
As you already know, big things start small. Alakija started her career as a Nigerian bank secretary.
