Lagos has competition...

Here's a NYT article on Lagos and all of its extreme wealth. If you substitute "Luanda" for "Lagos" and "Angola" for "Nigeria" you could very well be talking about Angola's capital city in the next few years. Except, of course, Angola has much fewer international soccer stars.

The article makes the claim that Lagos is the most expensive city on the African continent, although it should be noted that Luanda does not figure ANYWHERE in the list, which leads me to believe that it was not included in the survey for some reason. There's no way that a city where charges US$12,000 a month to rent an apartment is not on this list.

At least in Lobito I only had to pay $7 for a box of Cheerios.
