Founder of the United Bank of Africa, Tony Elumelu is trending on Twitter after a misguided fan said he is not as rich as Nigerian musician, Wizkid.
Fans have done a simple comparison of the wealth of both Elumelu and Wizkid.
Elumelu’s UBA has branches in over 21 countries. He is reportedly worth $700 million
WIzkid has been quite successful as a Nigerian artiste, with an estimated wealth of $12 million
Since 2014, Tony Elumelu had been providing grants worth $100million to people across Africa which is equivalent to $0.5billion in 5 years.
By Today’s Echo estimate, Wizkid is very rich, but his money doesn’t come close to Elumelu’s. Give respect to whom it is due.

Someone who is NOT a Wizkid fan trolled (seeked for attention) and said Wizkid is richer than Tony Elumelu, who owns UBA Group, which has branches in 21 countries including USA and the UK and has a net worth of $700m. Now they're saying "Wizkid fans said it". Imagine the rubbish.

Tony Elumelu is worth roughly $700 Million.
Wizkid is worth about $12 Million give or take.
700/12 = 58.3
1 Tony Elumelu = 58 wizkids. https://t.co/LOLQnE0Jsm

Please respect Tony Elumelu, that man is even miles richer than 🐸🐸🐸’s father. Don’t go and be delivering work that Wizkid did not send you.
