Recalll that at the couple’s pre-wedding dinner, one of the highlights of the event was Aliko Dangote reuniting with his ex-wife who is also his first wife and Fatima’s mother.
Dangote’s first wife was selected for him in 1977; that was when he was 20 years old. He later fell in love with Nafisat Yar’adua, the young daughter of Umaru Musa Yar’adua, the late President of Nigeria.
Some other women have also been romantically linked to the billionaire. These include the Director and Secretary of his United Kingdom subsidiary, Dangote Global Services, Miss Oluwatosin Coker while another is the late Ondo-born business executive, sugar merchant and reverend with the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Rev. Chief (Mrs.) Josephine Oluwadamilola Kuteyi, with whom he dragged the purchase of the Bacita Sugar Factory. A divorcee mother of four sons (Saheed, Ganiyu, Ahmed and Rasaq), she died in a helicopter crash in Osun State in 2011 while on her way to her Bacita sugar company in Kwara State. The helicopter plunged from a height of 2,500 feet, killing all the occupants.
