LOL! Dangote Withdrew $10m Cash & Put It On His Bed …just to confirm he's truly rich

Too much money can make people do weird things. If you're struggling to balance and later you see that your account balance is 'balancing' well, you may be tempted to confirm that its not a dreaming.

Imagine yourself walk into a bank, withdraw $10 million cash from your account, put it in your car, head home and spread the whole lot on the bed.

Well, businessman and Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, once did that just to look at the cash for real and convince himself that he is truly rich.

Dangote himself confirmed his action at the Mo Ibrahim governance weekend in Abidjan.

“The way it is is that when you first start business, your target is to make your first million. Fine, I did that,” The Cable quoted him as saying. “After a year or so, I realised that I had much more, and I said ok, fine, all these numbers are just written numbers.

One day I went to a bank, and at that time, there were no restrictions, and I wrote a cheque and cashed $10m from the bank and put it in the boot of my vehicle, and I went home and I opened it and I looked at $10m and I said ‘now I believe I have money’.”

Mission accomplished, Dangote returned the cash to the bank the following day. Today he is reckoned as the 74th richest man in the world with assets worth $16.4 billion.
