Mark Walton, managing director of media consulting firm Onyx Global Marketing recently stopped by our studio to discuss transitioning and connecting businesses to Africa, finding an industry niche and scouting resources from abroad. In the final segment of AFKInsider‘s interview, Walton shares what some don’t know about Africa; big business in Nigeria and financial contributions from the diaspora.
“One of the things that we may not know here…is there’s real support. There’s more money that actually is remitted back to Africa from people living outside than all the aid from all of the countries in the world,” Walton said.
“That just means that Africans are supporting Africa. I always say that people should be looking to support the Africans who are supporting their continent — and that will help raise all boats.”
