Dangote Writes A Tribute About Billionaire Tony Elumelu For Time 100 Most Influential People

Tony Elumelu

Nigerian billionaire Tony Elumelu has been listed among 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine.

The Time 100 is a list that celebrates people making impact in their respective field.

Financial expert, entrepreneur, philanthropist and billionaire Tony Elumelu is one of 5 Africans on the list.

As part of his profile for Time 100, fellow billionaire, Alike Dangote wrote a tribute about Tony for Time Magazine.

Here’s what Dangote said about Tony in full:

A mere handshake says a lot about Tony Elumelu. His gritty grip underlines his charming, tenacious personality: a man who hardly backs down from any challenge. The same engaging qualities have propelled him from a modest beginning in Nigeria to becoming chair of the United Bank of Africa, and one of the most innovative and ambitious business leaders of his generation. 

He is a leading proponent of “Africapitalism,” a belief that Africa’s private sector can and must play a leading role in the continent’s development through long-term investments, as well as entrepreneurship and regional connectivity. 

After deepening the financial market in Africa, he has found an equally important niche: giving a voice of hope to millions of youths across Africa. Tony has harnessed Africa’s youth bulge to catalyze development and protect the future, committing to investing $5,000 each in 1,000 young entrepreneurs per year across 54 countries in Africa. Having come so far, Tony still forges on, striking a fine balance between personal satisfaction and societal impact.

See the nice things a billionaire can write about a fellow billionaire.
