Kenya Moore allegedly had something in common with Porsha, because there had been rumors that she, too had been dating an African gentleman, who might possibly be from Nigeria. Before you book a flight to Nigeria to go looking for your own Mr. Right, we’ve got to warn you that Nigeria isn’t exactly teeming with black-card-holding bachelors.

Most of the people in Nigeria, 60% reports FT.com, live in poverty so the wealth is concentrated among a select few. Forbes.com contributor Mfonobong Nsehe pointed out four billionaires in Nigeria in 2014. Their earnings range from $1.2 billion to $25 billion. Some of these wealthy Nigerians earned their wealth in the oil industry.

Many of the wealthy people in Nigeria live in million dollar apartments in Ikoyi, Nsehe says. A 3-bedroom luxury apartment can rent for hundreds of thousands of dollars in Ikoyi. This community on Lagos Island might have the most expensive real estate in the continent of Africa, suggests Wikipedia.
