Forbes Names 26-Year-Old CEO, Austin Russell, Youngest Self Made Billionaire, Removes Jenner

At the fresh faced age of 26, Austin Russell has been crowned the world’s youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes, dethroning Kylie Jenner, who initially raised disputes about whether she was truly “self-made”, before facing removal entirely due to inflated figures in the documents submitted. Here’s a quick rundown of how another college dropout managed to join the three-comma club virtually overnight. Russell became a billionaire virtually overnight in December when his company, Luminar Technologies, was listed on the Nasdaq via an SPAC merger. Forbes estimated Russell's net worth at $2.4 billion. Russell received a $100,000 fellowship from the billionaire investor Peter Thiel in 2012 and dropped out of Stanford to found Luminar Technologies, which builds sensors for auto...

Kardashian, 40, went on to sell 20 percent of KKW Beauty to Coty for $200 million, which put the value of...

The Average Northerner Marrying two, three, four Women, are Helping the Society – Ned Nwoko

Ned Nwoko, the billionaire husband of actress Regina Daniels, says marrying more than one wife helps save the society.

In his words “The average Northerner marrying two, three, four women, they are helping the society because it is the economic downturn that has affected so many women who you see doing prostitution and all that. But the fallacy of it all is that Christianity does not allow that in the South and yet, the average Southern man has 10 girlfriends.” Speaking further, Nwoko said the polygamist nature of northerners has helped to increase their population and made them the majority in the country. “I ...
