The Biggest Brands Edition in African Business Review

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - April 6, 2011) - On paper, the performance of African brands in the BrandFinance Global 500 list of the most valuable brands looks poor. Telecoms giant MTN is the sole representative of African brands to make the top 500, positioned 199th in the table topped by Google.

However, we took the time to delve deeper into the outlook for the continent's brands -- and according to experts Oliver Schmitz, Managing Director of Brand Finance South Africa and Thebe Ikalafeng, founder of Brand Leadership -- it is certainly bright.

We also asked the question as to whether African brands are really cashing in on marketing on Facebook and Twitter and profiled the Kenyan Safari Park where Prince William popped the question to Kate Middleton.
