• Nigerian magnate survives death rumour
• Why Bill Gates called him for 30 minutes

Behind the rumour of Aliko Dangote’s sudden death, a humming bird sang discordant tunes with mischief and human ogres sought to thwart the gracious strokes of fate, in the life of Africa’s richest billionaire. The social space was recently cast in disarray as the Chairman of Dangote Group was pronounced death in what has since been denounced as mischievous plot of the magnate’s faceless enemies.

Family and friends of the renowned businessman suffered a scare in the wake of a malicious rumour of Dangote’s death. No sooner did the rumour hit the air than the social space exploded in panic as various phone lines, blogs and social networking sites caught on the buzz of the heartrending rumour. But contrary to rumours of his death, Aliko Dangote is alive. Very close sources to the businessman swiftly dispelled the rumour soon after it hit the airwaves, claiming authoritatively that Dangote did not die. It would be recalled that an online magazine, DW-TV3, reported that Aliko Dangote died in Germany.

However, Dangote arrived London, United Kingdom (UK) penultimate Friday night. He was at Aig Imokhuede’s 50th birthday party in Surrey on Saturday, September 24. Afterwards, his best friend, Femi Otedola, took him to the Stansted Airport where he flew to South Africa in the company of Sam Nwajoku and Niyi Adebayo. Sources close to Dangote revealed that, he received over 1,000 phone calls from family and friends seeking to confirm that he was hale and hearty. American billionaire businessman and philanthropist, Bill Gates was also on the phone with him for over 30 minutes purportedly to confirm that he was in good health. Thus contrary to the malicious rumour of his death, Dangote did not go where lazy peace hides her drowsy head; he did not for the sport of gossip and sensational media, increase the number of Africa’s illustrious dead.
