In today’s videocast, I discuss why Nigeria tech firms are going to Kenya. Wakanow and Mall for Africa just opened Kenya services, joining others like Wild Fusion, Jumia and Andela in the East African nation. For most of these companies, Nairobi is like the second state in Nigeria, after Lagos, owing to some promising indicators in that city.
