Chioma Nnani: Business is not a Shakira Song

So, at the end of September 2015, I launched my blogazine. Prior to that I'd made a conscious decision to stop blogging for a while, because the platform I'd been using was a free one – in other words, it wasn't mine. Meaning I had no control over a lot of things.
Chioma Nnani: The Nigerian Business Mindset – a real piece of work
01-10-2015 | 11:12:00

In a previous guest-blog post here, I mentioned how that Nigeria is a hyper-religious place, and how that is definitely not a compliment. From a socio-political point of view, it is ridiculous. From a commercial one, it is even worse.
