But wait, OP technically didn't call her dead. She's unconscious for all we know. And that's a perfect condition to perform an operation ie. no need for anesthetics. The only foreseeable losses are that of their unborn child and probably, her memory. If she survives, and Peter is put behind bars, Basket will go the extra mile to ensure his adversary is unaware of the operation's success
btw I keep getting the feeling that this dude EkopSparoAyara has finished the story

Plot twist: he's a high ranking board member at an offshore marine company, and this is his idea of a creative pre-wedding photoshoot
But either way, they look so happy together, their joy is infectious — a far cry from the smug smirk you see on couples with glamorous weddings. If it's not enough to carry them all the way, I wonder what will

Ok oooo. Noted. What I need now is the one that is applicable in our context. We seem to have transitioned from individuals who blossom through single commodities in vogue to transatlantic trade. Ecommerce has that covered. I think technology has leveled the playing ground to a digital one, but I may be wrong. Everybody has his own startup now — innovative solutions mostly groping for that goldmine that will fetch them millions from their venture capitalists. That's where we are now. From following these historical trends, can you tell what direction we should throw weight behind? Or is it an assignment for the reader? It's true that every sector has a fair amount of potential when nurtured under favorable conditions. But asides the much talked about software industry (which is mostly profitable outside the continent anyway), which ones have that kind of explosive market share those medieval items had in the next 5 years or thereabout?

naptu2:Sorry, man. Just seeing your mention.
Yes, you are correct about the references. I must've forgotten them during press time no thanks to old age creeping in faster than earlier speculated.

Naptu2, it's been said countless times but not from me yet: you are a blessing to this forum. How does one pronounce your moniker?

Adscampaign:But did he really, though?
Alhassan remained in Bebeji until matters had settled down and the roads were secure, only then did he set out for Accra, by way of Ibadan and Lagos (Ikko) and then by sea to Accra and then to Kumasi, Sekondi and back to Lagos. Alhassan was one of the pioneers of this route. For several years, he carried his kola by sea, using steamers; to Lagos where he usually sold it to Kano bound merchants. By this time, he was relatively wealthy. In 1906, he began broadening his interests by trading in beads, necklaces, European cloth, etc.So this dude used his savings (from begging on The streets) to sponsor business trips from the northern protectorate to Ghanaian cities, buy goods (kolanut o) in quantity. And the profits from selling kolanut were enough to make him "relatively wealthy". Erm, is there a modern day equivalent of kolanuts? Was there a time it was justified to have some kind of boutique/showroom for it? If no, how do you go from literally selling peanuts b2b to branching out into various foray of enterprise? Doesn't add up to me. The chronology is a joy to read but something undocumented happened along the line.
So, what happened to the other merchants who led the vanguard on the new route? Mismanagement of funds? Cowardice to expand into unfamiliar territory? He monopolized/ neutralised them? Nobody is asking. This story doesn't tell me how to go from being a common civil servant to an international business mogul. I'm not saying he was a fraudster or drug dealer. Maybe luck played a large role. I feel years eventually obscure dents on income strategies. 50/70 years from now, nobody will care what hotel was built with Yahoo money.
Whatever he did sha clearly wasn't mainstream knowledge. He was ahead of the curve in some way he could capitalize on and climb above everyone else. I imagine if someone has a rough idea of a modern day equivalent of what transpired, they'd have been dollar millionaires by now too, but let me ask anyway. Please PM me if you need to.
TL;DR: Alhassan Dantata was the plug who performed some magic and got excess capital to trade with. Used it to dig his hands into multiple income streams until he got noticed by the feds. They awarded him a bunch of contracts and he really blew up. His sons were Aminu and Sanusi , who is now late. Sanusi whose bro, Abdulkadri, lent his nephew, Dangote, seed funding when he was 24. Dangote's mommy, Mariya, is still hale and hearty; married her grandfather's business associate and is the daughter of Sanusi. At each generation, members of this family are at the helm of the most critically demanded products in the country. They live for attending to a large scale of consumers — oil, flour, cement, groundnuts, electricity, slightly real estate. Strategic endeavors the populace depends on.
Surprisingly, they have no investments in telecom, automobiles, transportation. Probably the next generation's mandate. These guys can afford to banish all the deficiencies we're suffering today. They're everywhere they want to be, do whatever they wanna do. But that'll make the future of the empire insecure
