As African billionaires recover their losses, Masiyiwa’s unwavering pursuit of success, combined with astute investments, has positioned him as one of the most prominent black billionaires in the global business landscape.
Last year, Masiyiwa suffered a significant loss in net worth due to a sustained decrease in the shares of his publicly traded companies and the depreciation of the Zimbabwean dollar.
His net worth dropped by $3.1 billion in nearly four months, from $4.4 billion on May 1 to $1.3 billion on August 22. Forbes reported that Masiyiwa was the only African billionaire to have lost over $3 billion in recent times.
The $ 3.1 billion drop in his net worth can be attributed to the performance of his investments in Econet Zimbabwe and EcoCash Holdings. Masiyiwa’s wealth is mainly comprised of his 52.85% stake in Econet Zimbabwe and his 30% stake in EcoCash Holdings.
