David Haigh, CEO of Brand Finance, said, “Starting from a low economic base and still troubled by political instability, Africa is nonetheless beginning to demonstrate its true potential. Following in the footsteps of Asian tigers with remarkable advances in this year’s ranking, African lions are the future of global economic growth.”

As South Africa struggles to recover from the mismanagement and criminality of the Zuma years, it is also in danger of being overtaken by Nigeria.”
