Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote, 61, is reportedly looking for a wife and Twitter users are all ready to offer their hand in marriage.

“I’m not getting younger. Sixty years is no joke... but it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time, Mr Dangote told the UK-based Financial Times newspaper.

"Right now, things are really, really very busy, because we have the refinery, we have the petrochemicals, we have the fertiliser, we have the gas pipeline,” Mr Dangote said, adding: "I need to calm down a bit.”

The twice-divorced Nigerian tycoon has three grown up daughters.
