They network at A-bar and party at 11.45 or Bacchus. They hang out at the Ikoyi Club 1938 or Polo Club and go boating from the Lagos Motorboat Club. They ride the waves of living in todays Nigeria. Well educated, blue-blooded, they are the emerging face of a new nation that is gradually evolving. Some of them are known faces, majority of them are not. But they cut across all sectors of the Nigerian economy. They are in real estate, construction, oil and gas, communications, leisure and tourism, etc. They are active players in the nations stock market. Some were born with silver spoons or want their children to be. And many have built organisations from nothing. Today, irrespective of their backgrounds, they all party together. They are mostly in their late 30s while only a fraction have just crossed into their 40s. What do they have in common? They are all Nigerians. They are the emerging business leaders. They have the Midas touch. They hate stereotypes. They dislike bureaucracies. They are adrenalin junks. And they are rich. They are men and women who, very soon, may eventually take over from the old. So step upstairs Mike Adenuga, step aside Aliko Dangote. The i-pod generation is here. Samuel Famakinwa presents 40 young achievers in todays Nigeria.
