Africa is largely believed to be the birth place of the humanity, the area where anatomically modern humans appeared, around 200,000 years ago. Now, a new fact often overlooked  has appeared in the last months:  Africa is the home and origin of the two richest people in the World, historically and today. The two people are  Mansa Musa, the late Emperor of the West African empire of Mali and the current CEO of Tesla, Elon Reeve Musk, from South Africa. Mansa Musa is the wealthiest person in the  World history, while Elon Reeve Musk is the wealthiest person in the World, today.

 Mansa Musa:  Richest Person in the World History.

Mansa Musa (or Emperor Musa) of Mali led the African empire of Mali between 1307 and 1337. During his reign, he increased his wealth through the trade of gold, copper, silk, and salt and the growth and use of the technology of those times, especially in construction and transportation.  During his reign over the purely African empire of Mali, he showed an unprecedented political and economical vision, accumen in  organization and administration, and a savvy planning of the future.  Through his vision, many achievements were made in Mali, including the expansion of trade in Timbuktu,  the founding of the University of Sankore, the architectural innovations in Gao, Timbuktu, and Niani.  With new technologies, he pushed for building The Gao mosque with burnt bricks, the first use of such advanced  construction material in  West Africa and improved the transportation using camels and chariots. 

Although some sources, using unreliable approaches estimate  his wealth to be equivalent to $400 billion based on today's valuation, more credible sources rather estimate his wealth to be well above US $130 trillion. This is the  wealth never reached by any other individual in the World, to date, including Mongol emperor Genghis Khan, The founder of the Roman empire  Augustus Caesar  ot Catherine the Great, the longest reigning female Russian monarch.

Mansa Musa's riches were shown to the world during his pilgrimage to Mecca in 1324, in the 17th year of his reign. His pilgrimage took him  and his lavish caravan through several kingdoms in Africa, all way to Mecca. The caravan included around 60,000 men wearing fine clothes of silk  and golden jewels and  carrying staffs made in precious metals and 80 camels carrying each hundreds of pounds of gold.

He traveled from  Niani, Mali to Cairo, Egypt and from Cairo to Mecca. His caravan went through several kingdoms, including  Walata (Oualâta) in  current Mauritania and  Tuat, in current Algeria.

Using his riches and unabated generosity,  Mansa Musa increased his reputation around the world powerful empires of the time.
