Does anyone know why Davido's father, Adeleke has never been listed on among the richest people in Nigeria? I'm just wondering when I found this list of the richest people in Nigeria and despite the "30 billion in the account" his name is not listed; see the list I found below:
Africa’s richest men/women are stepping up their games of philanthropy and same goes to Nigeria’s richest men/women who have taken vows to give out of their net worth to philanthropy.
The Forbes’ annual Billionaires list released in the first quarter of 2019, has over two thousand richest people in the world and seven from few African countries which sees Nigeria’s very own Aliko Dangote as the richest black man in the world and the richest man in Nigeria.
