Aliko Dangote, a billionaire industrialist, says its “bittersweet” for him as his daughter, Fatima, begins life as a married woman.


In a heartfelt video message, Dangote described his newly wedded daughter as “an excellent representation of what I call my values”.

“Fatima, my baby, my youngest, my sweetheart this is a bittersweet time for any parent,” he said in the video.

The Nigerian billionaire expressed his unconditional love for his daughter and emphasised on his approval of Jamil as her husband.


“I watched you blossom into an excellent representation of what I call my values; you are indeed pure to them.

“I trained you to take on any kind of weight on your shoulders and also to be bold and respectful.”

Dangote went ahead to share how he took Jamil as a son even before realising his intentions towards Fatima.


“Jamil has been a son to me even before I realized he had gone inside my garden to pluck my Juliet rose,” he said.

“I am here anytime you need me and I love you unconditionally.

“I have done enough homework to know that Jamil will always respect the ground you walk on. Good luck on this new journey my baby. The time has come.

“Be loved, be very happy and I love you very very dearly.”
