(CNN) — The rise of Africa’s long forlorn economies – what we at Renaissance Capital have dubbed “The Fastest Billion” – represents the final phase of a global economic transformation that began over 200 years ago as agrarian societies saddled with absolute rulers began their journey through industrialization into the pluralistic middle-class societies increasingly driven by the information age we know today.
For many reasons, Africa largely missed out on this journey. But no longer: while the process will not be complete by 2050, a changing set of global and local realities suggest that Africa is set to be the final beneficiary of this revolution. Continue reading CNN – Get Ready for an Africa Boom

This is no playing Gabriel García Márquez but a pretension of the neo-literate (nay monomaniac) ‘elite’ understanding of the subject of love. Say romanticism if you like, there’s always a trap!
Very quickly, let’s together situate love in the time of war. The soldier and his wife! In the time of war, the soldier is expected to head for the front, leaving the home-front to his wife (or would you say ‘to her husband’ if the soldier in this case were a lady? Of course!)
For convenience, we should be content with the first possibility where the soldier is a man. Here, the soldier is expected to make for the front, leaving home. However, will ‘our’ soldier leave home if he is ‘truly’ in love with his wife? To die? Or to live….
Some things dey craze! No be the human actors o but the things themselves. Such na ‘the flying car’.
Flying car? How on mother earth? Which kind sane person fit think of such an insane something.
Anyway, the thing surely get em own way of filling the needs of millions (if not billions – remember Gangnam Style?) of people. Just come to Lagos and start selling….
But hey, you no fit fly this car the way you go drive am o. If you be amateur driver, you still fit drive am inside gutter but fly? The gutter of the airstrip na hell. No be heaven o but hell because the person corpse go dance azonto inside fire.
Anyway, make we give thumbs up to those individual brains wey throw up the idea (including Hollywood) and those wey finish am.
Remember that South Korean Guy, Psy’s Musical Video Gangnam Style that was reported to have beaten Justin Bieber’s to clinch the ‘most watched video on youtube ever’?
As at the time of this writing, it has gathered exactly 1,146,732,756. That’s a whooping 1.46something billion. Can you beat that?
