Elon Musk has a long history as an entrepreneur and businessman, and shares a number of traits with some of his African namesake ancestors. Elon’s father was African and his mother is African American, so it’s reasonable to surmise that the famous Silicon Valley billionaire has a strong African heritage. Of course, this would be far more than just the name he shares with his father, since his name was not the only thing he had in common with the African royalty.
There are also a number of African names that appear to be quite similar: Sangeeta, Mwamma Dlamini, Solomon, Mwala, and a bunch more. Its no secret that Africans have had kings of great importance that were from their royal families. Musk, in fact, is in many ways a descendant of one of the most important African kings and its possible that the famous Silicon Valley billionaire has even more in common with the kings he knows from Africa.
Of the 10 things Elon Musk’s ancestors have in common with African royalty, one of his ancestors was king of a country called the Gambia. Another ancestor was the king of the United Republic of Tanzania. There is also a fascinating thing that was common to all African royalty: they all lived in wooden structures with open-latticework that they used for rituals and ceremonies.
One of Musk’s ancestors was the King of Congo The Kuba people originally came from Eastern Africa to the Western Sudan. King Kuba was extremely active in business, warfare, and governance, as well as having a strong and beautiful palace with a garden to the west.
The most famous and successful African king of all- known as the King of Kong- his nickname was the Ganda. He was born in the year 1450 the sixth son of King Amsatunda and the first female to rule East Kong, so he was a great king in his own right, and his reign overlapped with the early years of the Kong kingdom. His two sons were king Kamsaba and king Kaso.
