Tayo, I quite understand where you are coming from, however, I think you may need to see things from the other side.
I am fortunate that even though I have “exposure” and investor ears, I also have the empathy of the grassroots — the founders side. And I’m usually founder biased.
I quite agree in the spirit with most of what you’ve said. You have made cogent points, stating the same thing as Victor Asemota in that, Yaba can easily be euphemism for Nigerian tech. Other’s have stated that Yaba is beyond a location but also a state of mind.
