Many Nigerians are in the dark on Aliko Dangote marital status and the number of his wives and children. The truth is Dangote has been married twice and he has already divorce the two women.
Dangote married his first wife when he was in his twenties, his parents have chosen a wife for him. Some time later, he fell in love with a friend of his daughters Nafisat Yar’auda (daughter of Umaru Musa Yar’auda) but the girl said “no” to the marriage proposal.
Later, he has married Maria AD Muhammad Rufai. This marriage was not a long lasting and also ended by divorce. After the second divorce, there were rumors about a romance between the richest man in Africa and the Queen of Beauty of 2013 Sylvia Nduka. There was even information that these two were married secretly. People, who were subscribed to Sylvia’s Instagram proved the information that she added in Instagram two letters AD after the name, which stands for Aliko Dangote. There is no happy end in this love story too.
Dangote the African mogul is a father of many children, he has three grown-up daughters. Despite father’s wealth, these girls are very modest and are not arrogant at all, you cannot see them with uncovered heads. They are gorgeous young ladies and have studied and graduated the best universities in the United Kingdom. There is no much information about them, they are not eager to introduce their private lives to public. The facts, we know for sure are Aliko Dangote’s daughters’ names:
- Halima Bello (Dangote)
- Mariya Dangote
- Fatima Dangote
Halima (the oldest daughter) studied Marketing in London. She is a married woman now. Together with husband Sulaiman Sani Bello they gave birth to two beautiful granddaughters of Aliko Dangote. Now she works in a family business. Mariya Dangote graduated the Coventry University and now as the elder sister also works with their father.
The rich businessman also has a son, however, Aliko Dangote’s son has another surname, his mane is Abdulrahman Fasasi. He is not Dangote’s son for blood, he was adopted.
It is obvious that Aliko Dangote is a public person, who invites journalists to his stunning multi-million mansion but he tries to keep private life behind seven locks. There is no official information that he is married now as well as it is a secret if is his heart free or not. Probably, soon we will hear about the third official wife of Aliko Dangote, who knows.
