Africa's Business Heroes is a talent show that sees entrepreneurs in Africa competing for a chunk of $1.5 million, with Ma part of the judging panel. In the end, the November 2020 episode of Africa's Business Heroes was shot without Ma in presence -- in his place was another Alibaba executive.

The quick takeaway:

  • The billionaire criticized China's regulators and its state-own banks in November 2020
  • $37 billion IPO of Ma's company Ant Group was suspended shortly after
  • Ma hasn't been seen since

An Alibaba spokesperson explained: "Due to a schedule conflict Mr Ma could no longer be part of the finale judge panel of Africa's Business Heroes earlier this year (2020)".
