A Survey of Nigeria's Growing Middle-Class

This is basically a survey of middle-class Nigerians I found on which states that they earn between N900,000 ($5,760) to N1.2M ($7,680) per year. The findings are really fascinating. Check it out;

A recent survey by Renaissance Capital of the booming Nigerian middle-class delivered some interesting results.
Renaissance’s findings are summarised below:

The survey was conducted with 1,004 middle-class Nigerians, with an average monthly income of between N75,000 and N100,000 (US$480 and $645). Participants were drawn from the cities of Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt. 70% of respondents were aged 40 and younger.

Education and work: 92% of middle-class Nigerians surveyed have a post-secondary education or have studied at higher institutions of learning. 99% have one or more members of their household in full- or part-time work. The majority (76%) work in the public sector, while 22% work in the private sector. About half of the middle-class population are skilled professionals in paid employment, while 38% are entrepreneurs. Only 2% are employed in other forms of work or are part of a NGO.

New Video: Olamide ft. Wizkid - Omo To Shan

After watching this video, I think it has just won an award for the "dumbest/stupidest" video so far. From the intro of the video with Wizkid and the producer bragging about a UK/US tour that would never come to light to olamide arrivalling on an okada, to the whole hospital concept of the video. 

There was no proper coordination between Olamide's part and wizkid's part. Looks like a cheap video to me. they could have done better. Would be really disappointed if this video ever get's a nomination of any kind.

The sect declared that it had listed University of Benin alongside 19 other universities where it planned to explode bombs within the stipulated period it gave, saying "Western education must stop in Nigeria. May Allah bless us."
