Meet The World's Richest Woman of Color ( no its not Oprah)

 Step aside Oprah because Folorunsho Alakija  is now the the world's richest woman of color. Mrs. Alakija an indigen of Nigeria, has a net worth of about $3.3billion, whereas Oprah's current net-worth is said to be $2.7billion. Mrs. Alakija started off as a fashion mogul, catering to high level clients like former Military Ruler Ibrahim Babangida's wife. She now owns 60 percent of Brazil's oil company Petrobas. continue...
 Mrs Alakija is also known for her acts of Philanthropy by taking on cases of poor widowed women and orphaned children in Nigeria.
“Once they lose their husbands, the society turns their backs on them, their in-laws begin to mistreat them, they become depressed, they don’t know where to turn, they don’t know where their next meal is coming from.”
  She is no stranger to efizy (showing off) either , a few months ago she bought 4 Mercedes G-wagons for her 4 sons as gifts. Of course when you have billions of dollars in the bank who wouldn't! Congratulations on the new title as world's richest black woman. 10 more points for Nigeria.
