Scenes From Nigeria’s Baby Boom | Podcast | Overheard at National Geographic | Travel & Tourism Video Vloggers And Reviews

With 224 million people, Nigeria is Africa's most populous country. By 2050, it could crack the global top three with some 375 million people. In the second of our two-part series on the global population passing eight billion, National Geographic photographer Yagazie Emezie describes scenes she captured in Lagos, Africa’s biggest city—including intimate close-ups of a family raising four children in a one-room apartment and women receiving prenatal care. Plus, a Nigerian demographer explains how the country's soaring birth rate could make it an economic powerhouse, but only if the country finds new ways to invest in its youthful population.

After years of trying to conceive, Foyeke Omage and her husband, Ewanle, welcomed quintuplets as a miracle. But the cost of raising three girls and two boys is a financial strain. Although quintuplets are extremely rare, Nigeria’s total fertility rate is more than five children per woman. Its fast-growing population is on track to add 150 million people by 2050, possibly making it the world’s third most populous country.
