Mrs Folorunsho Alakija emerged the richest woman in Africa in 2012 but what you didn't know is that she was once a little black girl who loved taking photos in her schoool uniform.

Mrs. Alakija is now a top fashion designer and group managing director of the Rose of Sharon Group but did she look anything near a fashionista in these old photos?

Most of the pix, optained by Laillas.blog, show her smilling wide with her step-sister, her parents  and later shows her ealry married life till her present day live with her own family.

We must admit that she really looks like a very happy woman who cherishes every moment.

In some of the photos, she is seen rocking some of her designs after the cut as far back as the early 80s.

She later went into the oil business, became the Executive Vice Chairman of Famfa Oiland Gas Limited and is now worth an estimated $2.5 billion - N425billion!

At 63 years old, she is now listed as the 96th most powerful woman in the world, according to Forbes. She is married and has four sons.
