In this issue

The 7th anniversary issue of FORBES AFRICA is a must-read, packed with features looking into the future of Africa, and how growing food will generate the next generation of billionaires on the continent. AfDB President Akinwumi Adesina is our cover star as the fresh face of investment in Africa, as he unpacks why food is the future and agriculture will be the biggest business on earth. This is why we also delve into how agri-tech and big data will change the way we have been farming all along. Also in this issue, we look at the business of death, how entrepreneurs, due to the lack of burial spaces, are coming up with innovative ways to bury the dead. Bio-burials and virtual graves are becoming a reality. Yvonne Chaka Chaka, the songstress known as the Princess of Africa, reveals her favorite destination in the world for creative renewal. And then, we look at the nebulous world of dating online – what are the dangers? All this and more of our regulars on money and investment habits, in the October birthday issue of FORBES AFRICA.
