Isabel dos Santos, the eldest daughter of Angola's president, has become Africa's first female billionaire, US financial magazine Forbes has said.
The 40 year old's shares in several Portuguese firms, including a TV cable company, and an Angolan bank put her on the billionaires' list, Forbes said.
Her first venture was a restaurant in Luanda called Miami Beach, said the magazine that tracks the world's rich.
Most of the population in oil-rich Angola live on about $2 (£1.25) a day.
Angola is striving to tackle the physical, social and political legacy of a 27-year civil war that ravaged the country after independence from Portugal.
