Identical P-Square twins, Peter and Paul Okoye are great musicians by the modern standards.

Blogger Linda Ikeji
She makes millions every month from blogging! It is only fair to expect a sleek, curvaceous and smart woman like her to drive one of the topmost rides in the market. In her collection, the Infiniti FX35 reigns supreme. In addition to blogging, she is a top class model and makes some good naira from modeling gigs. She is a well established entrepreneur. Surely, you didn’t think the beautiful lass could be contained in blogosphere alone, did you?
Every lady’s dream, the richest man in Africa, yes, big as it is, and he says that he is just getting started! One thing is for sure, and it is that we would worship the ground he walks on. Therefore, even if he drove around in a beaten ’79 beetle like President Mujica, people would still admire that car. Dangote has made his fortune from manufacturing mostly. This man is after making Africa a manufacturing powerhouse and from the deal signing that he is doing with almost every country in Africa, he has made it. Thankfully, he has created direct and indirect employment for millions of people in Africa. Bless him!
