[LISTEN] Research shows millennials are concerned about the economy

The initial study focused on South African respondents between the ages of 18 and 35, the second part of the study focuses on Nigerian millennials.

Joanne Joseph sat down with SPACE’s Research and Insight Associate, Otis Olifant to unpack some of the research.
