Mariya Dangote: all you need to know about Aliko Dangote’s daughter

At the mention of the name Dangote, many Nigerians, as well as foreigners across the world, will immediately link it to Alh. Aliko Dangote he richest black man in the world.

Dangote has gotten to a stage in his life where he no longer needs to introduce himself as the name will continue to ring a bell and open doors for years to come.

This is owing to the reputation he has been able to build for himself in the business world that has seen him remain seated at the top seat of the richest black man in the world for years. So far, there has been no one able to take the spot away from him.

While Aliko Dangote is very popular, the same can not be said about his three daughters, who share the same look as him. In fact, if they were males, many would take them for the billionaire’s younger brothers.

As expected, Dangote’s daughters, namely Mariya, Halima and Fatimah, studied in some of the best schools outside Nigeria, and they all own a stake in their father’s business.

However, unlike their father, they keep a very low profile, and there are reports that one would barely recognise them in public except when they mention their names or facial appearance.

Of Dangote’s three daughters, Mariya seems to be the most secretive who tries so much to stay off the media.
