In all history, the richest man who have ever lived is Mansa Musa who was a for Mali, Africa. Since his death, no other human generation has been able to surpass him in his riches. Following his death, it had been like a competition between world richest men to do more but interestingly no one has been able to surpass him.
Surprisingly, the current richest man in the world is also an African. Elon Musk who is the current richest man in the world and also the CEO for Tesla beat the co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates in 2020 and became the 2nd world richest person. It didn't end there, being the 2nd on the world richest list, Jeff Bezos was the first on the list.
Elon Musk has beaten Jeff Bezos in the world richest ranking by $1.5 billion with net worth of $188.5 billion making him the world's richest man in 2021. He was able to beat Bezos in the sense that, a 4.8% rally in the electric car maker's share price on Thursday boosted Musk past Amazon.com Inc founder Jeff Bezos on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, a ranking of the world's 500 wealthiest people.
