How Everyone on Twitter is Reacting to Forbes’ Claim of Kanye West not being America’s Richest Black Man
Forbes dismissed claims that Kanye West is the richest black man in American history, with his companies estimated at $6.6 billion. Kanye West was reportedly worth $6.6 billion, according to several media sources, after Bloomberg revealed that his sneaker brand Yeezy and Yeezy Gap had a net valuation of up to $4.7 billion.
“It’s not true, based on our calculations. Forbes estimates he’s worth less than a third of that, or $1.8 billion. That’s a big jump from last May when Forbes first pegged his net worth to be $1.3 billion, but nowhere near as much as the purported $6.6 billion,” Forbes said.
“Vista Equity’s Robert F. Smith remains the richest Black person in the U.S., worth an estimated $6 billion, while Aliko Dangote of Nigeria, worth $11.8 billion, is the richest Black person in the world.”
