44% of Nigeria's Middle Class are Low-middle and upper-middle

while most of Angola's middle class are floating class, most of Morocco's Middle class are floating class, Most of Kenya's middle class are floating class, Most of Algeria's, Most of Ghana's etc.

So you cannot compare the wealth in a place like Ikoyi to Nairobi....

Like I said..the richest people in Ikoyi are not poorer than those in Sandton

It is a matter of taste...............You cannot compare the wealth of Ikoyi to floating class....flats in North Africa

Some of the people that live in Ikoyi could buy those entire North African neighbourhoods.

You cannot say an area is not wealthy, because you don't like the taste....personally I think Ikoyi has character and history, Sandton just looks tacky to me....like a European carbon copy....reminiscent of a Vegas strip.
Tbite, you can open a new thread about wealthy people in Africa if you like because the taste thing seems to piss you. This thread is about wealthy neighborhoods not wealthy people and so yes taste applies, it doesn't matter whether the people living in Ikoyi are richer than the rest of Africa combined, what we want to see is the neighborhood they live in.

Nyali - Mombasa

Almost all the richest people in Kenya have a second/holiday home in Mombasa and the coastal area especially in Nyali.

If you ever go to SP, head to Rua Oscar Freire in Jardins- one of the most exclusive shopping streets in Latin America, and you will see how crap it looks despite the designer boutiques and diamond stores.

Those Nigerian neoclassical houses are disgustingly vulgar. Reminds me of the type of houses that working-class footballers build when they get rich. Abuja is probably different but I bet you you step out onto the roads in these rich neighbourhoods in Lagos it will still have a "3rd world" feel. Messy overhead cables, potholes, poor quality sidewalks and lamps etc etc

Nairobi really has some nice suburbs.

Those Cape Town houses are disgustingly beautiful, luxurious but understated at the same time. If I ever become a millionaire, Im going to Cape Town to get ideas before I build my house. So much originality and flare. In the UK, architect designed private houses are less common.
