However, it might surprise you to know that the richest man in Nigeria has had his marriage proposal turned down before.
After separating from his first wife, dangote decided to ask for the hands of a pretty maiden.
Well, meet Nafisat Yar Adua.
Yes, you guessed it right. She’s the daughter of former president of Nigeria, late Umaru Musa Yar Adua.
She was asked by Dangote to marry him. But she refused for reasons being that she was a friend to dangote’s daughter, Halima Dangote.
After she refused to wed Aliko Dangote, she got married to a previous legislative leader of Bauchi State named Isa Yugudu who had three spouses before wedding Nafisat Yar Adua, making her his fourth wife.
She currently have four children for him.
