Which countries in Africa will develop first?no_redirect=1

Based on these sources I realized there is a difference between the top richest african nations & top developed countries in Africa. Plus I subtracted the least developed african nations in africa(which was 33 countries). Which leaves 15 countries in Africa that are either developed or close to there. Plus it factors many different things as well.

When it comes to the top 5 developed nations in Africa:

South Africa

Egypt

Tunisia

Libya

Algeria

Followed by(6-10): Nigeria, Gabon, Botswana, Angola, Cape Vede

Ghana, Cote D' Ivoire , Namibia, & Equatorial Guinea is not that far behind

But that doesn't mean that the countries mentioned in the top list are the top 5 richest countries though based on many sources the countries that weren't in the top 5 in developement are in the top 5 when it comes to worth or what country is the richest.

So According to or based upon GDP:

South Africa

Nigeria

Algeria

Egypt

Angola

so it's no that clear cut but from what I can conclude is that the African nations that are always repeated in the top 10 richest list, development list and etc, are the nations in my opinion that will most likely be in the top 5 in general.
