According to the report, even though 64% of Africans said they have faith in the continent, they still show loyalty to brands that are based outside of it.

The top five countries that are seen to improve Africa are South Africa, Nigeria, the United States, China, and Kenya.

Most admired brands

The results showed that the top five most admired African brands are still South African telecommunications group, MTN; Nigerian conglomerate, Dangote; Zambian consumer group, Trade Kings; Nigerian telecommunications group, Glo; South African payTV, DStv; and Ethiopian Airlines.

The report also stated that six nations accounted for 14% of the African component of the ranking: South Africa and Nigeria each received five points, while Ethiopia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania each received one point.

According to the research, Asia increased its stake by 23.5% to take up 21% of the African market, while Europe maintained its 37% share of the Top 100. North America saw a fall in its proportion from 12.5% to 28%.

Nike, Adidas, Samsung, Coca-Cola, and Apple are the top five most admired companies in Africa, and they have all held their ranks for the past five years, according to the report.

The most admired non-governmental organizations are UNICEF and the UN.

The most admired non-African organization is Coca-Cola, while the most admired African brand is MTN.
