Who is the richest person in Africa? As of this week, Forbes can tell you exactly.

The magazine compiled a list of the 40 richest people on the continent. "Forbes' inaugural list of the 40 Richest People in Africa is a testament to the growing global importance of the continent," the company writes in its introduction to the initiative.

Forbes features Africans from six of the continent's countries, and all 40 on the list are men.

The list excluded Africa's dictators, the Daily Mail reports, as Forbes disqualified them because their wealth is connected to their position of power.

Check out Africa's richest men in the slideshow below.
