I was not surprised to see a South African clinch the number 3 spot, to be honest with you.

What is his real name? 

 

Let me tell you a little about him! 

 

The real name of this guy is Nicholas F. Oppenheimer aka Nicky Oppenheimer. 

 

Nicky was born in the year 1945 on the States precisely on the 8th of June. 

 

In a time of crisis rocking the world in the form of COVID-19 Nicky joins the likes of Dangote in a free donation. 

 

Oppenheimer donated the sum of 1 billon Rand to small businesses in South Africa. 

 

and according to thesouthafrican.com Oppenheimer got this idea from his grandson who said:

 

We have been fortunate to have more than others and in this period it’s only okay to give back to the people. 

 

This according to Nicky put joy on his face to be able to give back and not expect anything in return. 

 

It’s time to answer your question on who is he! 

 

Nicholas Oppenheimer is a business mogul in diamond and a South African philanthropist who was once the director of Anglo America. 

 

Oppenheimer joined Anglo American in the year 1968 and later that a couple of years later. he was appointed the director of Anglo America.

NEXT: the next person on this list of the top 10 richest people in Africa 2020 is Nassef Sawiris. 

 

How Much is Nassef Sawiris Worth $6.3 B Egypt

 

Nassef is one of the top 50 richest men in Africa precisely the 4th person on the top 10 richest people in Africa 2020.

 

but hey I have to say that didn’t come as a surprise knowing how wealthy this man is. 

 

History says Egyptians held world power at the earliest formation of planet earth. 

 

In the Nigerian Pidgin English, there is this popular saying “Power must change hand”. 

 

It means one man or group of people, the country cannot be in power forever. 

 

The US, for example, is the modern-day world power as you and I know it. 

 

Today Egypt is nowhere near the tables of world power, not even the G5 from which Russia was excommunicated. 

 

Well, I do be looking up to when Africa can rise up to such place ever again but in my head not in the next 100 years even.

Nigerians still haven’t forgotten how they killed some Nigerians and other African people. 

 

but all that sins gets watched away on this list honestly. 

 

At least in my head and for the fact that I am a Nigerian so I honestly hold nothing against SA.

How Much is Issad Rebrab Worth ($3.9 Billion Algeria)

 

It’s totally not bizarre to find Algeria on this list considering it’s one of the richest countries in Africa. 

 

I mean so far from the caliber of people that made this list of richest billionaires in Africa have all come from some of the richest countries in the continent. 

 

You and I can put that by the wayside for now and direct our focus to Issad. 

 

So that the ultimate question becomes who is he? 

 

What is his real name? 

 

Issad Rebrab is the real name of the Algerian and he was born in the year 1944. 

 

Issad in January was release from an 8 months jail sentence after allegedly breaking some tax rules.

So who is he then? 

 

Well, Issad Rebrab is an Algerian businessman and a billionaire and currently THE CEO of the Cevital industrial Group

 

Cevital Industrial group happens to one of the largest business groups in Algeria. 

 

or should I better express it as one of the largest private group in Algeria which ply trade in steel, electronics and Agriculture. 

 

Issad is known for proficiency in business and in 1988 he created Metal Sider. which is one of the many companies he owns. 

 

and in 2016, he acquired a media group known as El Khabar.

I love writing and talking about these things because it helps me dream of it myself you know.

So who is he? 

 

What is his real name? 

 

The real name of one of the richest men in Egypt is Naguib Sawiris… 

 

He was born in the year 1954 precisely on the 7th of June. 

 

but who is he that’s the question right? 

 

A simple answer would be he is a billionaire… 

 

but a more structured answer would sound something like this:

 

Naguib Sawiris is an Egyptian billionaire and currently the chairman of Weather Investments. 

 

He is also the chairman of one of the companies founded by his late father which is Orascom Telecom Media and Holding. 

 

and guess what? 

 

Did you know that he is the eldest brother of Nassef Sawiris and Samih Sawiris? 

 

As a matter of fact, these three brothers are all billionaires. 

 

and as you take your time to process that let me hit you with what he did… 

 

Naguib recently threatened to commit suicide due to the ongoing pandemic that threatens the world’s economy. 

 

Since being part of the family business Orascom, Naguib has helped to increase the growth of the company and diversified its sources of income. 

 

but then what is his source of income? 

 

What is the source of income of Naguib Sawiris? Naguib Sawiris joins top billionaires in Africa who has a diversified source of income. but his major source of income comes from the family business Orascom Group and other his Weather Investments. 

 

So 

 

How much do you think he is worth?

Net Worth: $2.9 billion 

 

Who is next? 

 

How Much is Koos Bekker Worth ($2.3 B SouthAfrica)

 

Another billionaire from South Africa and it can almost make you wonder why do they have so many billionaires right? 

 

It’s simply one thing that holds true for billionaires is the mindset right? 

 

It makes for an argument that anyone could create wealth. 

 

but billions of planet earth’s inhabitants wants wealth but won’t put in the needed work required. 

 

I am sitting here, typing this article from hard research to content production to content promotion. 

 

Now it takes me about 4 days to put this piece of content and that’s 96 hours of work just to bring this to you… 

 

and yes I could easily write maybe two line of words but hey that won’t bring you all the information you need. 

 

but just by doing this research, I am not only providing you valuable knowledge. but am also using it to build my brand here at Shoutmeceleb.com. 

 

In a nutshell, if you want to become successful put in the work it pays off. 

 

Now let’s get back into this discussion, shall we?

He was born in the year 1952 in Pocheftstroom in SA precisely on December 14th.

 

and Kroos Bekker is popularly known for the transformation of Naspers newspaper into what it is today. 

 

So who is he sounds like the right question to ask now… 

 

Bekker is a South African businessman and a billionaire for that matter. 

 

He is currently the chairman of Naspers which is operational in more than 120 countries worldwide. 

 

If you are looking for the right guy to give your newspaper company the boost it needs then Kroos Bekker might be the man you need to get a couple of advice from. 

 

but the sad news is billionaires would only associate with billionaires. 

 

It’s just how it is so you would have to deal with it. 

 

So what is his source of income right? 

 

What is the source of income of Kroos Bekker? Kroos makes a higher part of his come from Naspers Group which is a newspaper company that he help expand to more than 129 countries worldwide. 

 

Bekker also founded M-Net and Multichoice which is a sister company. 

 

and all of these has helped increase his net worth over the years…

and Morocco finally clinches a spot on this list.

He was born in Tafraout in Morocco in the year 1962. 

 

In 2019 Moroccans backlash at Aziz for using an uncultured word discipline. 

 

A word which according to Moroccan poet incite violence… 

 

Here is what Moroccoworldwidenews.com puts it. 

 

“When a politician utters such a word [discipline], no matter how elegant he is, the word takes us back like a storm to another era, and to another rule,” he said. The poet made a reference to the era of the late monarch Hassan II.

So who is he?

I particularly love anyone who has rise from the roots to the very top. 

 

Whether it’s an ill-gotten wealth or acquired legally, I still feel it they are worthy of some praise. 

 

That sounds controversial, right? 

 

Well I know it does but looks at this way… 

 

It takes courage and consistency in scheming to truly become a billionaire.
