Nigerians becomes London's 4th Biggest spenders

Every year, Simi Osomo (in the picture above) makes six trips to London from Nigeria. The 25-year-old spends about two weeks here and every day she goes shopping. Today she’s at the boutique shop Matches Townhouse in Marylebone with a personal shopper. “When it comes to shopping and Nigerians, I can tell you it’s just what we have to do,” she tells me while admiring the patterned dresses.

For Nigerians, London is a shopping mecca. Visitors from the West African country are the UK’s fourth biggest foreign spenders, parting with an average of £500 in each luxury shop they visit — four times what UK shoppers typically spend. When I ask Osomo how much a two-week shopping trip in London costs she makes a bashful face. “Ooh, should I really be saying this? It depends, but most times about £5,000.

Man offers $63-million to any man who marries lesbian daughter

Not every parent likes their child’s choice in a partner, but this is extreme: A real-estate tycoon in Hong Kong is offering a $63-million prize to the man – any man, anywhere – who can get his daughter to marry him.

Problem is, she’s apparently already married: to her long-time girlfriend. In fact, it seems Cecil Chao Sze-tsung only made his offer after word of his daughter’s nuptials leaked to the public. (According to the South China Morning Post, they eloped in the spring to France.)
Now Gigi Chao’s dad is denying the marriage news, and, in an apparent act of (highly questionably) face-saving, going ahead with the so-called marriage bounty.

VIDEO: Dangote Speaks To Forbes Magazine on the Inspiration behind his philanthropic side

Aliko Dangote is the richest man in Nigeria and Africa, but in the past, part of the criticism against him was that he made so much money and gave so little back to society. They compared him with some of the world’s great models in philanthropy like America’s Bill Gates and Warren Buffett and expressed a desire to see Dangote’s more altruistic side.
Dangote has been doing just that recently. Following the wave of violence which swept through the North of Nigeria in the aftermath of the 2011 elections, Dangote gave the displaced $600 (about N100,000) each. He’s given away millions to education, health and social causes.
Nowadays, he counts those same names he had been frequently compared with —Bill Gates and Warren Buffett— as the inspiration behind his decision to step up his giving and making it public.
Watch this video from the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, held in New York this June, where Dangote shared his thoughts on giving, philanthropy and the benefits of changing lives.
