Show Notes

If you’re a regular listener of the Techpoint Africa Podcast then you probably know that we discussed Autochek’s acquisition of the Moroccan cars marketplace KIFAL Autos, last week. We also brought up a report that shows that most car marketplaces in Nigeria made up to 150% profit from car sales.

Autochek reached out to Chimgozirim to clear things up and we decided to kick off today’s episode of the Techpoint Africa Podcast with that.

Why Kenya is after Nigerian fintechs

Lawsuits are flying across the tech space. The first involves a company called Meta suing Meta (formerly Facebook) for trademark violation. The company disclosed that it had been negotiating with Facebook over a peaceful settlement, but having failed to do so, they have resorted to a legal solution. eCommerce giant, Amazon is also suing Facebook group administrators for fake reviews, while Elon Musk vs Twitter has taken a new direction. But that's not all we discussed, as we talked about Russian banning crypto, Netflix's declining subscriber numbers, and Kenya's fascination with Nigerian fintechs.

Why you should care about the Nigeria Startup Bill with Oswald Osaretin Guobadia, SSA to the Nigerian President and Timi Olagunju, Tech Lawyer and Policy Analyst

In 2020, ride-hailing startups in Lagos, Nigeria, were dealt a huge blow – the Lagos State government had placed a ban on all motorcycles in the state. Consequently, these startups saw operations halted, and a few pivoted to other sectors to stay afloat. Interestingly, only a few days before the announcement, some members of the ride-hailing sector were seen with government officials. The relationship between Nigerian startups and regulators has been bumpy, with startups constantly being thrown regulatory curveballs. With this in mind, a bill – the Nigerian Startup Bill – was created to create an enabling environment for startups. On today's podcast, we had Oswald Osaretin Guobadia, Senior Special Assistant to the Nigerian President and Timi Olagunju, tech lawyer and policy analyst, join our reporters to discuss the bill and what it portends for Nigerian startups.
