Folorunso Alakija: I became a billionaire even without a university degree

One of the richest women in Africa, Folorunso Alakija, has made a revelation about her life that not so many people know of. According to the billionaire, she was able to achieve greatness in life even without a University degree. 

Alakija took to Instagram to share this piece and she also opened up that she is the 8th child in her family of about 52 children. She wrote: “I would like to encourage you on my encounter with the glory of God. 

It happened almost 27 years ago when I gave my life to Christ at the age of 40 and my life has not been the same ever since, I pray your life too, will experience a total turn around. I was born almost 67 years ago, into a large and illustrious polygamous Muslim family as number 8 out of 52 children through a father who had 8 wives. 

Back then, large families were common, but what was unusual was that I was one of the very first few Nigerian children who left its shores to go and study abroad at such a tender age of 7. 

Even at that age, I knew I could not afford to let my family down cause I was seen as an ambassador. My desire was to study law but my daddy did not believe in investing in girls at that time. 

Today, I have no university degree, but God’s glory lifted me up and I have received numerous Honorary doctorate degrees at home and abroad. 

All of what you now see today has taken almost two and a half decades, so I am not an overnight success. On the contrary. Through God’s grace, I am a blood bought totally forgiven, absolutely redeemed, heaven bound child of God.
