Florence Otedola, also known as DJ Cuppy, a prominent Nigerian disc jockey, has presented a case for her godfather, billionaire industrialist Aliko Dangote.
The wealthy heiress rejected American rapper Kanye West’s claims that he is the richest black man alive in a post uploaded on her Twitter profile on Sunday, January 16, 2022.
“Random, I know… I am a HUGE @KanyeWest fan However with ALL due respect, I feel the need to remind him that he is not the “richest black man” -it is in fact my Godfather @AlikoDangote. Just clearing the air with #Facts,” she tweeted.

Cuppy’s tweet might be related to the rapper’s recent claims that he is the richest black man in the world.
However, in 2021, Forbes, a business publication, disputed Kanye’s assertions.
According to Forbes, Dangote is the richest black man in the world as of 2021, with a net worth of $13.5 billion.
