Africa, the world’s second-largest continent by population, with around 1.40 billion people, or 16.72% of the world’s population, has a promising future. Its predominantly youthful population is changing the course of history in many facets.
Internationally, young Africans are cutting their teeth and putting smiles on people’s faces back home with their dexterity in the booming entertainment industry and the recognition that comes with it. The same can be said of sports and fashion; Africans are taking the lead.
Africa is home to many natural resources like oil, gold, diamonds, and ores, such that many technology giants like Apple Inc. rely on Congo’s supply of tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold to manufacture smartphones, batteries, and laptops.
