Mabilionea tajiri zaidi 15 barani Afrika wamepata utajiri wao kwa kuwekeza katika tasnia kama almasi, mafuta, na biashara za bidhaa za kawaida. Kwa jumla, wana utajiri unaofikia dola bilioni $73.3, huku Aliko Dangote, tajiri mkubwa zaidi Afrika Magharibi, akiwa wa kwanza na jumla ya utajiri wa dola bilioni $13.5.

Tajiri mwingine kwenye orodha hii ni pamoja na Patrice Motsepe, mmoja wa watu matajiri zaidi nchini Afrika Kusini na mwenye utajiri unaofikia dola $2.2 bilioni. Patrice Motsepe alikuwa Mwafrika mweusi wa kwanza kutokea kwenye orodha ya mabilionea kwenye gazeti la Forbes mnamo 2008.

Pia kwenye orodha hii kuna Isabel dos Santos, binti wa rais wa zamani wa Angola, ambaye alitengeneza utajiri wake kwa kuwekeza katika kampuni mbalimbali za Angola wakati wa uongozi wa baba yake.

Katika orodha hii, nchi za Afrika Mashariki hazikuweza kutoa hata tajiri mmoja. Miaka ya karibuni, tajiri namba moja kutoka Tanzania, Mo Dewji, amekuwa akitajwa kwenye orodha ya matajiri wakubwa Afrika, lakini hakuwemo kwenye orodha hii.

Orodha ya matajiri hao wakubwa zaidi barani Afrika ni kama ifuatavyo kutoka wa kumi na tano mpaka wa kwanza.
