From my immediate University clique, another person is leaving Nigeria for America at the end of this month, with her family of three. Virtually every month for the last two years, I’ve gone to visit one person or the other who was making a similar move.

What I think of the tech space in Nigeria, is basically, a space where a bunch of we can all be rich in the “foreseeable future” sets of people come together to explain prehistoric rich men who are not willing to believe them; due to lack of real business know how, that this idea of an app will bring in unimaginable wealth with a peanut from your money pile.
