Nairobi clearly #1.

Especially with the planned supertalls.

I did not know Nairobi has planned supertalls. Sounds interesting.

Nairobi still needs to fill much holes. With some more and a couple of supertalls maybe it will be the 1st in some years.

Joburg hasn't got rival in Africa at this moment. I consider the 2nd Cape Town, not very tall but beautiful.

Agreed. South Africa far surpasses all other African countries in terms of skylines.

True...I expected much better from Nigeria by now but not working out. Maybe the new planned city near Lagos will change things but then again no idea about the status of this project.

On another note, I think SA has won back the crown as Africa's biggest economy again last year.

SA have always been the real largest economy while Nigeria is the fake. Lagos and Abuja is all that Nigeria have. I'm a Nigerian born in germany, i visited the country not long ago. Believe me Nigerian is dead. My mom said things were ok back then. i see on tv how Nigerians are also suffering all over the world. The government are busy fighting corruption while living the primary problem. The government need to first build a good educational system. 70 per cent Nigerians are without education or not good enough. The government have failed my beloved people.
