Nigeria: Black Superpower?

Is Nigeria a Black Superpower?: “It is well known that Nigeria has the largest population in Africa, and the largest economy in West Africa; it is fairly well known that Nigeria's military has been intervening in hot spots in the region; it is perhaps even less known that Nigerian movies are now, all over Africa, what bollywood movies were in Nigeria when I was growing up in the 80s. Add all these together you get a Black Superpower.”
