#BLACKGIRLMAGIC: OPRAH IS THE FIRST BLACK WOMAN TO BE LISTED IN BLOOMBERG’S TOP 500 RICHEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD
Recently clinching a deal with Apple to provide exclusive content for their streaming service, Oprah Winfrey is steadily winning as she becomes the first black woman to be listed in Bloomberg Billionaire Index; a daily ranking of the world’s richest people where figures are updated at the close of every trading day in New York.
Clocking the 489 position of 500, Oprah is reported to have a net worth of $402 billion. Building her legacy and wealth from her Oprah Winfrey show and owing her cable network ‘OWN’, it was reported according to Bloomberg that her latest bump came as a result of her shares in Weight Watchers, which pushed her up to an extra $427 million this year alone.
Will Oprah one day take over Jeff Bezos founder of Amazon as the richest person in the world? Let’s keep our fingers crossed because when it comes to Oprah we clearly know she is the queen of securing the bag.
