Top Ten African Billionaires from 2016


Last year was a bad one for African billionaires with most losing a huge chunk of their wealth to the fall in commodity prices. We compiled a top ten list of  21 ranked billionaires living in Africa
Presently there are 21 billionaires living in Africa with a combined worth of $70 billion, lower than the 23 listed in 2015, in that year African billionaires worth  a combined $79.8 billion.
