The rest probably know enough to have built their bunkers and watch the rest of us lose our minds.

#BizTrends2020: A truer, more meaningful narrative for the African child

Yet, if brands want to succeed in South Africa and the rest of Africa, they need to love and appreciate Africa and the rich diversity that unifies instead of divides us.
