Feb 23, 2018 – Africa’s Richest Woman, Folorunso Alakija: I Was Born Muslim, I Converted To Christianity At Age 40

The wealthiest woman in Africa, Folorunsho Alakija recently wrote an inspirational story on her official Instagram page to encourage those looking up to her.

The 67-year-old Oil billionaire who took over from America’s Oprah Winfrey to become the richest black woman on earth has revealed that contrary to what many believe about her, she has no university degree all because she came from a family where the female child was not considered important for tertiary education.

In the inspirational post, Chief Mrs Alakija revealed that she surrendered her life to Christ 27 years ago and experienced a turn around for good…

Her words:

“It happened almost 27 years ago when I gave my life to Christ at the age of 40 and my life has not been the same ever since, I pray your life too, will experience a total turn around.

I was born almost 67 years ago, into a large and illustrious polygamous Muslim family as number 8 out of 52 children through a father who had 8 wives.

Today, I have no university degree, but God’s glory lifted me up and I have received numerous Honorary Doctorate Degrees at home and abroad.

 I am not an overnight success. I have had to make sacrifices like everyone else, faced challenges but never given up.”

  1. It’s always good to embrace the light and spread it….the saying goes MORE money more problem…..BUT i say..more JESUS more peace.

  2. EITHER YOU ARE MUSLIM OR CHRISTIAN OR SANGO, THAT DOE NOT MEAN YOU ARE HUMAN OR HOLLY MOYAMO.

    WHATEVER DO YOU LIKE, YOU CAN FOLLOW BUT GOD ONLY NEED WHAT YOU DO BEHIND CLOSED DOOR, IS THERE ANY SKELETON IN YOUR CUPBOARD?

  3. Can this woman set up factories and create thousands of jobs and get out of our faces with her “Tailor made” money? Do you know how she got the money, Maryam babangida’s oil wells. That’s why she only came out after Maryam died. She was a tailor on ogunlana drive. Nigerians should start asking people how they got money instead of idolising them. How many jobs has she created?, how many children is she sponsoring in college? That is why you got lucky, not to tie gele and boast. No curses on me. It’s the reason Nigerian is backward, celebration of mediocrity.
