Elon Musk is probably a name you have been seeing all over the internet streets and have no idea who this guy is. Well, it’s a Monday and Mondays are all about money so if you have no idea who Elon is, then you are suspecting he has a lot of money to catch this article’s attention.
You are darn right! Elon is now the richest guy in the world. He ousted Jeff Bezos out of that coveted seat just last week.
Elon is today worth $195 billion. Translate that to Kenyan money. Now, faint.
Elon, seriously, have a million dollars would change my life, my family’s ,my village’s and even my country. 😛

He was married to one Justin Wilson in 2000, divorced her in 2008 then married Talulah Riley in 2010 divorced her in 2012,married her again in 2013 and she divorced him in 2016. He is now dating a musician called Grimes and while he has five kids from his ex wife, Grimes gave him another son they called X AE A-XII, the first X is the first name. Mmmmhhh…
Did you know this guy is African?
49 years ago, Elon was born in Pretoria, South Africa to a South African father and Canadian mother.
However, at 17 years he shifted to the US because he couldn’t support apartheid through mandatory military service. Such a good heart, aaaw!
What makes Elon the richiest?
Well, let’s mention some companies Elon Musk owns.
Most people who do online business know that Paypal is one effective way of getting paid by buyers or clients from foreign countries.
Elon owns Paypal!
When I first heard of this, I thought it was one of the video games that these teenagers like to play. Turns out its a company that builds spacecraft for commercial space travel.
This company designs rockets that can carry payloads into orbits and serve as vessels for deep space missions.
SpaceX was also allowed by the U.S. government to launch a fleet of satellites into low orbit to be able to provide internet service benefiting rural areas because of its accessibility, while also boosting competition in heavily populated markets that are typically dominated by one or two internet providers.
3. Tesla Motors
This is an electric car company. Imagine? Electric cars exists , not in movies only…don’t you laugh at my backwardness!
4.The Boring Company
What a name, yeah? So this company plans to design subterranean tunnels that will allow pedestrians, freight, utilities, or autonomous electric vehicles to circumvent traffic on surface roads more directly from one point to another.
5. Open AI
This is an artificial intelligence research laboratory whose mission is to build Artificial General Intelligence that
benefits all of humanity. These AGIs are autonomous systems that outperform humans at most economically valuable work. Things we only see in this Sci-fi movies. Can’t say much about this company before I bite my tongue.
In their website, Neuralink say they are a team of neuroscientists who are creating the future of brain interfaces by building devices that will help people with paralysis and inventing new technologies that will expand our abilities, our community, and our world.
What caught my eye was this. Apparently, they have unveiled a pig called Gertrude that has a computer chip in its brain . The goal in developing these wireless brain-computer interfaces is to cure human diseases such as Alzheimer’s , Dementia, Spinal Cord Diseases, Depression , Insomnia and the likes.
All these companies founded by one man! Look at them all, each with otherworldly ideas but he has pursued them with determination and they have succeeded.
I see a combination incredible diligence, a unique self-confidence, immense perserverance, unrelenting ambition, spectacular intelligence and a sanguine personality that enables this man rise above all heights!
The combination is only unique in one Elon Musk!
