Very little information is available bout the wife of the riches black man in the world, Aliko Dangote. It is true we have heard so many things about the man himself, but the wife or wives seem to be keeping very low profile and they seem not to love to romance the camera. They seem to love their privacy. Truth is information available about them is negligible.
We have however taken time to investigate about Aliko Dangote’s wife and we are going to present to you the little information we have about her here.
Many people do not know, but Aliko Dangote has actually gotten married up to here times already. The first two marriages he was involved in actually ended in divorce. He was not the one to choose his first wife, it was chosen for him in 1977 when he was still a young man of 20 years of age. This was in line with the culture of olden days.
However when he grew older, he fell in love with one other woman. Name of this new woman is Nafisat Yar’adua. This lady happens to be the daughter of the late president of Nigeria, Umaru Musa Yar’adua, who was also the former governor of Kastina State before he became Nigeria’s president in 2007.
Unfortunately for Aliko Dangote, Nafisat refused to marry him. Her reason was because she and Dangote’s daughter were friends. At a later time anyway, Nafisat got married to another man, who is Alhaji Isa Yuguda.
Isa Yuguda was the executive governor of Bauchi State and Nafisat is his fourth wife. She got married to Isa Yuguda in 2009 when she was just 21 years of age.
When things did not work out with Nafisat, Dangote later found another woman named Mariya A.D. Muhammad Rufai. She happens to be the daughter of the former Commissioner for Women Affairs and Human Services in Bauchi State.
The two of them later got married. The unfortunate part of it is that the marriage ended up in divorce. It also did not last long at all.
As at present, it cannot be ascertained who Dangote’s wife is. One can even call him a bachelor; that will make him one of the oldest bachelors living.
At a point in time, rumour had it that he was having a love affair with Sylvia Nduka, who happens to be an ex-beauty queen. The rumour was based on the fact that people saw Sylvia cruising around in Dangote’s private jet. Some even said she changed her surname to that of Dangote.
Those who had access to her Instagram page in that period said she changed her name to Sylvia Nduka AD, where AD means Aliko Dagote. Rumour also had it that the two got married secretly at a point.
However, the love affair between these two seem to have hit the rock too. The changes started manifesting when Nduka removed AD from her name as earlier updated on her Instagram page. This means Aliko Dangote is at presently without anyone he can call a wife.
