richest black man in the world is Ethiopian,the mind boggles

Postby 2ndtoNone » Sun Feb 21, 2010 3:16 am

WASHINGTON DC, MARCH 2009 - If the recently released Forbes Magazine list of richest people in 2009 is anything to go by, then Mohammed Al Amoudi (Ethiopian ) - is the richest black man in the world with a networth of $9B - (Yemeni father and Ethiopian mother). Oprah Winfrey, 55, American television icon is the richest black woman (2nd richest black person) with a networth of $2.7B. Aliko Dangote, 51 (Nigerian) is the third richest black man with a networth of $2.5B. The fourth richest man is Mo Ibrahim (Sudanese-born, now UK Citizen) with a networth of $2B. The fifth richest black person is Patrice Motsepe, 47, (South African) with a networth of $1.3B slightly ahead of Femi Otedola, 42 (Nigerian) with a networth of $1.2B.

I Do not beleive it, an ethiopian( aka starvin' marvin), this is one list i thought an ethiopian could not have topped the geeljiree nation aka somalis
how strange

Amoudi is Yemeni not Ethiopian. Infact His company provides all dairy products to Saudi, and they are known Yemenis.

How does a company providing products to Saudis make him yemeni? Also, yemeni and saudi are just colonial divisions between arab tribes. Bin Laden is technically of yemeni origin, but he is also a Saudi Arab. ps. As for this Amoudi, he is an Ethiopian since his mother is Ethiopian and he was born there. Let's just call him an Ethiaudi. :mrgreen:

he is yemininan father born and raised in ethiopia so he is ethiopian nationality.

what i like about yemani origin people is even indonisian who is 4th generation who speaks no arabic will send his daughteres to yemen and marry them distance counsins and keep it to the family.

murax the one you talking about they only share the family name Alamoudi, they do not relate other than that.

alamoudi family are very large, wa qabil idil. like alshuabi and they do not related to my mom.lol

Al amoudi can pass as an African , but he is not a black man. If you say he is black cause his mother is black habasha, then Obama could be a white man and not a black Kenyan.

See Al amoudi as an Afro Arab. and Obama as an Afro American.

Somalis are rich by nature. There are a lot who easily got to the top. But they don't use banks. So it is difficult to guess the exact amount.

don't forget they are like iska rogo, they give away too much... :lol: :lol:
