Exclusive: Africa Daily Podcast Host Interviews Billionaire Mo Ibrahim

In a rare opportunity, the presenter of the Africa Daily podcast had the chance to chat with Mo Ibrahim, the Sudanese-born businessman, in his prestigious London offices. Despite referring to himself as a retiree, Ibrahim proved to be engaging and spirited during the conversation.

During the interview, Ibrahim made his stance on corruption crystal clear, firmly stating that corruption is always detrimental, contrary to the notion that it can sometimes facilitate progress.

In a moment of curiosity, the interviewer couldn’t resist asking the quintessential question: how much cash does a billionaire carry? Ibrahim’s response was surprisingly modest: around £200 ($250) and a credit card.

This candid insight into Ibrahim’s perspective and wallet provides a unique glimpse into the mindset of a successful entrepreneur.
