Wow, that day that we thought would not come anytime soon is here. Oprah Winfrey is no longer the richest black woman in the world according to a report by Ventures Africa, an African business magazine and news service…

 

According to the report, the richest black woman in the world is Folorunsho Alakija, a 61 year-old Nigerian fashion designer and oil tycoon who is worth at least $3.3 billion, $500 million richer than media mogul Oprah Winfrey whose wealth Forbes magazine estimated at $2.7 billion in September.

Folorunsho Alakija is the founder and owner of Famfa oil, a Nigerian oil company which owns a 60% working interest in OML 127, an offshore oil field which produces 200,000 barrels of oil per day.
