South Africa is the giant of Africa – Nigerian tech investor sparks debate

A Nigerian entrepreneur and CEO of Switfacorp, Victor Asemota, has sparked a debate online by dismissing the agelong claim that Nigeria is the giant of Africa.

He took to Twitter and stated that South Africa is the actual giant, while responding to a report that the country accounts for about 73 percent of the 1.6 million Netflix users in Africa in 2022.

It read; “Netflix had 1.6 million users in Africa in 2022. South Africa accounts for 73.3%, Nigeria accounts for 10.5%, Kenya accounts for 3.9%.”

Reacting, Asemota quoted the post and wrote; South Africa is the Giant of Africa.

The tech investor’s comment elicited mixed reactions from Nigerians on the microblogging platform.
