Unfortunately, things haven't change much. We still run the music industry and the basketball world. We are nowhere to be found on the high tech radar, no black nation is in the community of developed countries , and we are still obsessed with migrating to greener pastures. However, one bit changed. We now have a black man running America. We have blacks running a couple of the world's best companies. And today, I will be telling you about a few Nigerians who are among these blacks running the global corporate world.
1. Adebayo Ogunlesi
He is also the only black on Goldman Sachs board of directors. He was once named the 7th most powerful black Executive in the world. He is extremely popular in the US investment banking world, and has been referred to as extremely intelligent with a deep global understanding of the investment world. The year he got into Harvard, he was one of the only 3 non-US students that got in that year. He, with another black colleague, were the first Africans to be editors of the Harvard Law Review. On graduating from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School, he became the first non-American to clerk at the US Supreme court. He is probably the most successful investment banker from Nigeria, and he's doing exceptionally well on a global scale.

These are the few I could come up with. But I'm sure there are a lot more.
