Mansa Musa was one of the kings of this empire, and was considered to be one of the wealthiest kings of all time.
You asked for this, now you shall suffer. We shall no longer stay with the failed Mali empire.
Mansa Musa died in 1337. The power went to his sons, who were to rule the Mali Empire after him.
A new, more powerful empire would take Mali's place. The Songhai empire would be wealthier and larger than the Mali Empire ever was, and it too thrived on trade.

Eventually, the Mali Empire was no more.
