Folorunso Alakija, Nigerian entrepreneur and Vice-Chair of Famfa Oil, addressed the topic, ‘How to Become a Billionaire’, and discussed her recipe to success in an exclusive one-on-one interview at the 6th FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit held as a virtual event on March 8 and 9.  

“As you progress in life, you meet hurdles, and I’ve come up with my own mantras that guide me. I spell out ‘SUCCESS’ – Seek God; Utilize your time and talent; Credibility and reliability; Consistently focus on your goal; Educate yourself; Say ‘no’ to discouragement agents; and Sacrifice daily by going the extra mile.”
