tiffania-wong asked: Hi! I'm currently doing a research investigation on Yoruba theatre, in particular, the music and dance aspects, and unfortunately, here in Sydney, I've tried to contact a few different people unsuccessfully. Do you know anyone who might be able to help me in general with Yoruba dance and music?
If anyone has information please contact this person. Thank you! (:
Nigeria has overtaken South Africa as Africa’s largest economy after a rebasing calculation almost doubled its gross domestic product to more than $500 billion, data from Nigeria’s statistics office showed Sunday.
Average Nigerians seemed unimpressed by the news, saying a doubled GDP figure didn’t put money in their pockets. Though GDP per capita rose to $2,688 last year from an estimated $1,437 in 2012, poverty and inequality have widened.
GDP for 2013 in Africa’s top oil producer was 80.22 trillion naira, or $509.9 billion, the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics said, up from the 42.3 trillion naira estimated before the rebasing. The new figure shrank Nigeria’s debt-to-GDP ratio to 11 percent for 2013, against 19 percent in 2012, statistics chief Yemi Kale told reporters in the capital of Abuja.
