Children are the leaders of tomorrow; but the richest kids in Nigeria are already leaders of today. It is not common to find people so well established at a young age; usually, even old people have a hard time establishing themselves to the point that they have secured their futures, and the futures of people who work with them.
While working out this list we have deliberately omitted the children of politicians and monarchs, and all those who cannot publicly declare their wealth, or sources of wealth.
Preferably, the young people on this list should have created some sort of income generating streams, whether or not they have received help from their parents in this regard is immaterial.
