Having done close to 40 deals in 20 years and with over $1bn fund under management, African Capital Alliance is one of the elders of Sub-Sahara African investments.

We were humbled when Afolabi Oladele agreed to come and wax lyrical with us about his long experience of getting investing in African companies right. Those who know Afolabi will know he has a wealth of eye opening stories to tell from a time before the Africa Rising term was coined or the trend to push investing on the continent as the next big thing.

People need to see a trend not a snapshot of a country.

In Part 2, Afolabi discusses the dangers of not knowing the characters you’re going to bed with including his own personal experience, snapshot vs trends of Nigerian history to measure risk and biting the bullet to bring in the best people.
