Nigeria is known as the giant of Africa and the continent’s richest and most populous country with a population of 218,541,212 as of 2022.

Surprisingly, amidst the hardship and high rate of unemployment associated with its economy, Nigeria boasts of industrious and imminent individuals who are successful in their various paths and a force to reckon with in Africa and the world at large. Some of these are billionaires and business moguls who have contributed in one way or the other in registering Nigeria on the Global map and have also shaped the perception of the country in the business world.

This includes to mention but a few, Nigerian Oil and Gas mogul, Femi Otedola, Chairman of the Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, Economic and Philanthropist, Tony Elumelu, etc. These are popular names in the monetary history of the country and even a five-year-old child would mention their names without missing a letter.

However, as popular as these people are, Nigeria is blessed beyond just having these few individuals as its sole wealthy population. There are many other rich folks whose names are not often in the news, unlike the trio of Otedola, Dangote, and Elumelu. These categories of rich folks are called ‘the Silent Billionaires’. The mystery of it all is that they are as stinkingly rich as other famous billionaires the country has produced.
