Is Dangote an Igbo Man?

On a lighter mood, Dangote means in Igbo: "Dan, please buy". It could have also been a corruption of the Igbo expression "Di anyi, gote," which in English means: "Dear, please buy".
It may not be asking for too much if Dangote is urged to conduct a DNA test and make the result public. This writer will not be surprised at all if the DNA result shows that somewhere in the past, one of his forebears may have been Igbo. Be that as it may, Dangote will do well by remembering to site one of his factories in Igboland. That way, Ndi Igbo can indeed "gote" from his vast business empire.
