In 2018, Forbes listed him as one of the 100 richest Africans, with an estimated net worth of $5.8 billion.

Adenuga’s achievements are a testament to the fact that with hard work, determination, and a heart for philanthropy, anything is possible. He is a role model for young entrepreneurs who are just starting out and serves as an inspiration to those who aspire to make a difference in society.

As he turns 70, it is a fitting time to celebrate his remarkable journey and contributions to society. Happy birthday to a true icon!
