In the world today, some individuals have amassed so much wealth that we refer to them as the wealthiest in terms of ranking of who has more wealth than the other from year to year.
Since humans on the surface of the earth are black and white, or coloured and white, here is a list of the 10 richest black people on earth today for your judgment.
According to Forbes in 2022, business mogul Aliko Dangote from Nigeria is the richest black man on earth today, controlling a total of $14 billion dollars along with his business goodwill.
