in SteemAlive2 months ago

Hello everyone and welcome to the day two of Genius contest powered by @steemalive community.
Like I said before, i wouldn’t want to bore us… so for the rest of the contest, I will try as much as I can to minimize my writing so that my post doesn’t become too boring.

So for my day 2, I will be taking about the SUCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN - ALIKO DANGOTE!!!

My source for this post.

Country of originNigeria
Educationhe attended Government College, Birnin Kudu and Graduated from Al-Azhar University.
FamilyDangote has been married and divorced twice. He has three daughters – Mariya, Halima, Fatimah – and one adopted son Abdulrahman Fasasi.His first wife was Zainab, and second wife was Maria.
Area of specializationAliko DANGOTE is a SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN he Is the Founder and CEO, Dangote Group


From my research I can only say that DANGOTE started early, he found himself very early..,, to the extent of selling his sweets and goodies just to make profit from them


I believe his major achievement is becoming the CEO of DANGOTE Conglomerate..


ALIKO DANGOTE pulled through and cut across several projects and products, ranging from mining, to food, to equipments etc….. you can’t spend a whole day without using one of his numerous product


  • Dangote was awarded Nigeria's second-highest honour, the Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON) by the former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

  • Dangote was named as the Forbes Africa Person of the Year 2014.

  • For six consecutive years, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016,2017,and 2018Forbes listed him as the "Most Powerful Man in Africa".

  • In 2014, he was listed CNBC's "Top 25 Businessmen in the World" who changed and shaped the century.

  • In April 2014, Time magazine listed him among its 100 most influential people in the world.

  • In October 2015, Dangote was listed among "50 Most Influential Individuals in the World" by Bloomberg Markets.

  • He won "The Guardian Man of the Year 2015".[37]
    He won the "2016 African Business Leader Award", organized by the Africa-America Institute (AAI).

  • Dangote was cited as one of the top 100 most influential Africans by New African magazine in 2015, 2017,2018 and 2019.


I chose him because his impact is glaring to the sight, there is basically no day that you live your life without making DANGOTE richer by patronizing one or more of his products…. His products cuts across all works of life and are cheap and affordable.

QUALITIES i would love to take form DANGOTE is the quality to be ubiquitous and still be impactful..

That’s all for my day 2

Thanks for reading


Is Dangote a genius? I emphatically say yes. He is an entrepreneurial genius. His vision is to give Nigeria and Africa what they spent their money to buy abroad. If the country had done their quota, we would have enjoyed him more. Secondly, he has created employment & job opportunities for many Nigerians. He has also provided infrastructures like roads, schools, refineries. He has show us that we can make it here rather than migrating abroad for greener pastures. Well chosen home grown genius. Well written.
