Richest Black Woman Oprah Winfrey Networth 2012 | 2013

The richest black woman in the world today is 61 year old Nigerian oil magnate Folorunsho Alakija. After winning a landmark legal victory against the Nigerian government earlier the year, Folorunsho Alakija’s net worth skyrocketed to $3.2 billion which makes her $500 million richer than Oprah Winfrey. $3.2 billion also means that Alakija is the fourth richest black person on the planet behind fellow Nigerians Mike Adenuga and Aliko Dangote ($4.3 billion, $11.2 billion) and Ethiopian Mohammed Al Amoudi $12.5 billion. 

In addition to being the richest black woman, Folorunsho Alakija is also a mother, grand mother, wife of 40 years, fashion designer and active philanthropist. Mrs. Alakija earned her billions as the founder of Famfa Oil. Famfa Oil owns 60% of a Nigerian oil deposit called OML 127 which produces 200,000 barrels of oil each day.
