“I’m not getting younger. Sixty years is no joke…but it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time. Right now, things are really, really very busy, because we have the refinery, we have the petrochemicals, we have the fertiliser, we have the gas pipeline…I need to calm down a bit.”

The billionaire’s vast business empire runs from oil, to food processing, cement manufacturing and even freight. The businessman has been divorced twice, but being Muslim, he can legally marry up to four wives.

He has three daughters, the youngest being Fatima, who got married earlier this year in a lavish wedding attended by among others, American billionaire and Microsoft owner Bill Gates.

Dangote, who is worth about $12 billion, has in the past expressed interests in buying English Football side Arsenal.
