Who was the richest African king?

The richest African King in history is believed to be Mansa Musa I of Mali, who ruled from 1312 to 1337. He was the tenth Mansa (King of Kings) of the Mali Empire and is estimated to have had a net worth of $400 billion, adjusted for inflation. Mansa Musa's immense wealth came from his control of the West African salt and gold trade, which he used to build his empire and fund his famous pilgrimage to Mecca. During his reign, he is said to have built mosques, libraries, and universities, and he was known for his generosity, distributing so much gold during his pilgrimage that he caused inflation in the regions he passed through. Despite his great wealth and power, Mansa Musa is also remembered for his piety and his contributions to education and the arts in West Africa.
