I think we Nigerians need to stop seeing everywhere else through rose tinted glasses, whether Ghana, South Africa, USA, UK, we always think they are so great, but never show the other side, but yet Nigeria is always only bad in our eyes. Someone has come up to show that there is a gorgeous side of the country divergent to what people think or see in the media .

The airport also is being refurbished and expanded to become one of the biggest and most modern in the Southern horizon.

SAB tried to enter the East African market in a big way with Castle Lager only to be outdone by Kenya-based and indigenous East African Breweries and had to bow out. It's not about showing only the nice part of Nairobi City where I have grown up and incidentally spent all my years to date.

Without oil and literally no natural mineral resources, Kenya overtook the European Union to become the largest exporter of manufactured goods into the Comesa region.
