Daddy Time - Aliko Dangote and Daughters

Posted in: , , ,

Aliko Dangote is one of Africa’s most popular business men billionaires, but it's amazing how one never hears much about his family. 

Well, I was reading something and was so surprised when I saw this picture of Aliko Dangote with his daughter, Halima. The picture was taken back in May at the Nominee's Gala for the TIME’s most influential 100 people around the world.

Halima is Aliko’s second daughter, and it is reported that Aliko Dangote has only daughters, Zainab, Halima, Fatima and Salma.

Fatima Aliko Dangote is CEO of the popular Cupcake factory in Lagos, Nigeria.

Halima Dangote is a “Marketing Major” graduate from the American Intercontinental University, London. She proceeded to Webster Business School, London immediately after her first degree, where she enrolled and obtained a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. She currently works directly with her father as a strategist in the multi-billion Dangote Group conglomerate. She recently stepped up as one of the directors in her father’s business empire. 

Here, she accompanied her father to Kogi State where they went to donate N430million worth of relief materials to flood victims. Based in the United States, Halima is happily married and a mother of two girls. 


  1. I often wonder though, when I read captions such as "happily married". One is simply married. How do you certify a happily married woman? Seriously Myne? It has to be a Nigerian thing. Kind of thought you were international though.

    1. Of course I cannot certify the state of any one's marriage but mine. But we want to hope that most marriages are, unless they aren't.
