This issue’s strong focus on Africa’s aspiring entrepreneurs leads in with a FORBES exclusive with the continent’s kingpin, Aliko Dangote. Recognising the influence of entrepreneurs, he says: “When you are raised by an entrepreneurial parent or grandparent you pick that aspiration. It makes you be much more aggressive – to think anything is possible.”
Speaking on the cover is Chris Bishop, Managing Editor of Forbes Africa: “I think this is an iconic story of the quality that has made FORBES AFRICA a strident voice on the continent. There’s been a lot of talk about who we put on the cover and who we don’t; this is the epitome of a FORBES cover. Who wouldn’t want to read about Africa’s richest man telling us how he lost more than $10 billion?”
Another highlight in this issue of FORBES AFRICA is our focus on Zimbabwe, 35 years after independence – once the economic gem of sub-Saharan Africa, business and investment is drying up. The Southern African country has overcome war, sanctions and unrest; are its economic woes merely a Herculean challenge?
Get the inside story on how the world’s wealthiest got to the top. This and so much more in the April issue of Forbes Africa – out in stores from April 6.
