Amazon’s Jeff Bezos reclaimed the No. 1 spot two weeks after losing the title of the richest person in the world to LVMH chief Bernard Arnault.

 

According to Forbes, Amazon shares closed more than 2% higher on Thursday, June 10, boosting Bezos’ net worth by $3.5 billion, while shares in Arnault’s luxury conglomerate LVMH slumped by nearly 1%, slashing $1.4 billion from his fortune.

 

Bezos’ net worth now stands at $193.5 billion, Forbes estimates, compared to Arnault’s $192.9 billion. 

 

In the report, Forbes said it’s been a rollercoaster few weeks for the two titans, who have been trading the top spot back and forth. On May 24 and 25, Arnault briefly passed Bezos before the markets opened in New York and Amazon shares rose, giving the Amazon founder the upper hand. Then, on May 27, Anault took the lead and held it for two weeks. 

 

Most of Bezos’ net worth is tied up in his Amazon shares. He owns about 10% of the e-commerce giant in addition to an estimated $19 billion worth of cash and investments, $500 million in real estate, plus aerospace company Blue Origin and the Washington Post.

According to him, his father has been the main inspiration behind his music career so he had to feature him on some of his songs to honor the legend.

Speaking with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM this morning, Akwaboah revealed that mostly, when musicians are aging, Ghanaians turn to tag them as outmoded musicians, thus not patronizing their craft anymore.

He said that it would have been better for the new school to run back to the old legends to learn a thing or two from them rather than ignoring them, especially when they are at their peak.

Akwaboah also stated that he has to learn more from the legend because even with the fame he has garnered so far, he feels he cannot compare himself to his father.

Comparing his father’s era to his, Akwaboah stated that he hasn’t been able to live up to his father’s legacy even to date.

Akwaboah described his father as the best among his peers in his prime and still wears the crown so there is still much to be learned from him.

“I played a song to him on my album and within a few minutes, he was able to tell me what was wrong with the whole album. With such a personality in my life, I can never say his time is past because he has been a blessing to me”, he noted.

As a reminder, Akwaboah’s father, Akwaboah Snr. is visually impaired yet has the capability and experience to put together a masterpiece.
