Digital wallets such as Flutterwave, Paystack, and Cellulant in Africa allow users to store their payment information securely and make transactions through their mobile devices.

With the rise of remote work and the need for continuous learning, online education is likely to become even more popular in the future. In Nigeria, ride-hailing apps such as Uber, Bolt, and OCar have become increasingly popular due to their convenience and ease of use.
