Meet the kids of the richest black billionaires in the world, according to Forbes
These kids know the value of money and they have been finding ways to give back to the unfortunate.
Business Insider shared what the children of the world’s richest black billionaires have been doing throughout the years.
A lot of these kids decided to follow in their parents’ footsteps.
Perhaps one of the most popular black billionaires is Michael Jordan, who is considered as one of the best basketball players in history. His estimated net worth is about $1.65 billion.
Jordan is known to have five children. Two of them are twins, a boy and a girl. They were welcomed into the world in 2014.
Just like Michael, his son, Marcus Jordan, grew an interest in playing basketball. In fact, from 2009 up until 2012, he played basketball at the University of Central Florida. Every game, he scored an average of 12.3 points.
Aside from shooting balls on hoops, Marcus is also a successful businessman much like Michael. He had previously opened a sneaker shop in Disney World and called it the Trophy Room. The shop’s inspiration was his father’s extensive collection of awards.
Another famous black billionaire is Mohammed Ibrahim, 71. He owns a huge telecommunications company and currently lives in the United Kingdom.
His net worth is estimated to be over $1.1 billion. Ibrahim has been spending a part of his time giving back to the poor, especially the African citizens, through his Mo Ibrahim Foundation.
Ibrahim has a daughter named Hadeel Ibrahim. She has been helping her father in running the foundation since she was young. In fact, she had been appointed as the organization’s executive director when she was only 22 years old.
Apart from that, she is a member of the United Nations Secretary General's High-Level Panel on Humanitarian Funding.
Hadeel is also a board member of the Clinton Foundation and various other well-known organizations.
Ibrahim’s daughter continues to be a good role model to her peers by helping in promoting the collaboration between Africa and the United States as the co-chair of Africa Center in New York.
As a philanthropist, she and her father have been recognized for being granted the David Rockefeller Bridging Leadership Award.
