Spotlight on African opulence

In tonight's edition: Bigger is beautiful. We head to Lagos Fashion Week where curvy ladies strut the catwalk, followed by a look at the continent's growing luxury market. Also on the show: securing Nigeria's oil industry, and waves of solidarity sweep through Cameroon after last week's deadly train accident.


Bigger is beautiful: we head to Lagos for the opening of its fashion week to take a look at the curvier creatures decked out in the latest creations. Staying with African opulence, we talk about the continent's growing share of the international luxury market.

Also in this edition: Nigeria plans on investing tens of billions of dollars into settling the tensions in the Niger delta that have led to years of attacks on oil facilities, destabilising the country's earnings from its top national resource.

And public solidarity with victims continues to spread across Cameroon, a week after 79 people were killed and hundreds hurt in a train derailment that shocked the country.
