Nigerian businessman Jim Ovia has been called the Godfather of Banking by Forbes Africa.

In a time of tension between military and civilian regimes, periods of incredible economic instability, and a decaying infrastructure, Jim founded Zenith Bank.

Under his leadership, what started with $4 million in shareholders’ funds, grew into one of Africa’s largest banks, an internationally recognized institution with more than $16 billion in assets.

In this special edition of Talking Books’ Peace Hyde speaks to him about his transition from banking into the author of ‘Africa rise and Shine’.
