Single Digital Issue: Nigeria 60 – Forbes Africa Oct/Nov 2020
Nine years! That’s how far FORBES AFRICA has come on the continent, documenting the present for posterity and the countless stories of entrepreneurs and visionaries taking us into the future. In the October/November issue of FORBES AFRICA, we celebrate our ninth birthday along with the 60th independence anniversary of Africa’s biggest economy and most populous country – Nigeria. The Covid-19 pandemic may have come right in the middle of the country’s mid-life crisis, but there is hope in the form of its tech innovators and the resilience of its growing youth population, cementing its never-say-die attitude. We focus on these young leaders, and also include a state-of-the-nation report with commentary from the top billionaire and multi-millionaire titans on how they are strategizing their business models in the new normal. There are tips from names like Aliko Dangote, Folorunso Alakija, Tonye Cole and more on the emerging new capitalism. And we won’t go without our take on Nollywood’s money-spinning yarns. Also in this issue, an exclusive with Kenya’s Amina Mohamed, a frontrunner from Africa in the race for the top job as DG of the WTO. Also on East Africa, a look at the energy sector that took the hit in the pandemic and the way forward for these businesses. And then, a photo essay with snapshots of the informal economy crawling back to life in South Africa. All this and more, in addition to our regular profiles on entrepreneur success stories from across the continent. Read this must-have birthday issue now!
