The 2016 Cadbury programme at the Department for African Studies and Anthropology, University of Birmingham, and culminating in an international conference on 30 June-1 July explores the practices, disciplines and debates through which West Africans learn to be Muslims.

The African continent has been projected to be an urban continent by 2025. Today, 40% of its population lives in the cities and it is estimated this figure will climb to 50% by 2025. The ripple effects are the elevation of most African cities to mega-cities. Megacities are new phenomena of the worldwide rapid urbanization processes associated with accelerating globalization (Kraas, 2007: 80). Lagos is a good case in point of a mega African city.
