Okay, so we usually publish The Draft on Friday evening around 5 PM (WAT) which immediately goes straight to your inbox. But since we already published and sent ChartBox on Thursday, we didn't want to be silly or spammy.

Besides, the past week was quite eventful as almost the entire team was busy hopping in between various training programs and keeping track of the stories that matter. In the end, we worked over the weekend to bring you what we believe are the top stories and deals across emerging markets on The Draft.

This edition features Elon Musk's internet service Starlink and its approval in two African countries, Latin America's smartphone market, India's PC shipment surge, IHS Towers deal with MTN, China's PC shipments decline, a look at Africa's smartphone market, and finally the biggest venture deals across emerging markets.

May this week bring glad tidings 🥹
