Cosmos Maduka

Native to the city of Jos, Dr. Cosmos Maduka was raised in northern Nigeria. He was born on December 24, 1958 and lost his father when he was only four years old. Without a secondary income for his family, Cosmos and his brother had to begin hawking bean cake on Nigerian streets to help make ends meet. Due to their low income, Cosmos Maduka had to stop attending school when he was nine years old. Despite these humble beginnings, Maduka managed to amass a net worth during his life that is estimated to be at $1 billion.

To begin earning more income, Maduka became a motorcycle apprentice to his uncle. Since his uncle did not have his own home, Cosmos slept each night in the store. He spent his free time researching automobile parts and learning about the industry.  As he entered adulthood, he started the Coscharis Group and became a director of Access Bank.  He worked as a trustee with the United Nations Human Development Fund. Outside of his business projects, Cosmos Maduka is a deacon at his church. An avid sports fan, Maduka has donated millions of dollars for sports teams in Nigeria. He is also a supporter of philanthropic organizations.
