Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, has caught the popular Gelato bug.

Friend, Femi Otedola, shared a video of him enjoying Gelato with some friends and called him the only Nigerian trillionaire.


“The One & Only Authentic Nigerian Trillionaire, Aliko DANGOTE catches the #GELATO bug 🍧🍨 … F.Ote💲,” he wrote.

In August, Otedola had praised DJ Cuppy for her latest single, ‘Gelato,’ featuring indigenous rapper, Zlatan, calling her an ‘innovator’.


Gelato became a popular part of Nigerian lexicon when Cuppy revealed that she and her dad stopped over in Italy for an hour to get ice cream.

The stopover was part of the Otedola family’s European vacation in June/July.
