In recent years, he has dominated Africa’s rich lists as the continent’s youngest billionaire. Mohammed Dewji, the shrewd entrepreneur and CEO of MeTL Group in Tanzania, has previously been on two FORBES AFRICA covers – in 2013 and 2015.

As FORBES AFRICA celebrates its 10th birthday, the ABN Group, which it is a part of, lauds the women who tirelessly drive both CNBC Africa and FORBES AFRICA as the gatekeepers of information in a digital economy. The pan-African group places special emphasis on diversity, and these are the women in its South African headquarters leading the charge as they share the highs and highlights of their daily jobs running two of Africa’s much-loved business brands.

The Smell OF MONEY
Globally, ingredients for most perfumes are often imported from small suppliers in Africa, processed, and then re-exported into the commercial market of their country of origin as the finished product. Now, the continent is beginning to look inward to explore and support ways that local production can be encouraged in furthering the olfactory story of Africa.
Change Is Brewing
