Or listen on:

Zeinab Badawi’s African History of Africa, The Gerontocracy Running Africa, and Harry and Megan’s Eventful 3 Days in Nigeria.

Africa is the world’s youngest continent with a median age of 19. So why does it have the oldest leaders on the planet? And they tend to stick around. Cameroon’s President Biya – in his 90s – is the world’s oldest leader and has been at the top for 42 years and there are plenty of others in their 70s and 80s. We ask independent researcher, DR JOSEPH ADEBAYO why Africa is a continent for old men.

ZEINAB BADAWI tells us about Africa’s often overlooked ancient civilisations that she has covered in her best-selling book An African History of Africa. She reminds us that all human beings originate in Africa and until relatively recently (8-12000 years ago), everyone of us was dark skinned. President of SOAS, Zeinab also reveals her love of Italian opera and confesses her guilty pleasure.




Is South Africa selling off the family silver? PATRICK updates us on the prospective take-over of Anglo American by BHP.

And DONU explains why there’s so much interest in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Nigeria.
