Why arent the Nigerian benin walls remembered and made into a proper world heritage site?

Why aren’t the Nigerian benin walls remembered and made into a proper world heritage site? People like to shit on African sites and say they only made huts or whatever else but this is literally the 2nd longest structure made by man.

        Funny how ancient stuff perdures in Europe, Asia and America but vanishes from Africa
        What an unfortunate series of coincidences that makes subsaharian Africa look like they never had anything!

          I mean if you want to be technical... Africa has Egypt which is obviously iconic. For the subsahara they have ethiopia.
          There are some more obscure ones that I know of that simply aren't given any attention. There's a lack of archeology too. Some primary sources from white colonialists have suggested the existence of various things or take note of their destruction. Most notably the destruction of the original city of Kumasi.

            Bro, here's how random irrelevant towns in Europe looked in the 1890s
            Don't make me post photographs of 1890s Benin City to compare

            European cities were far more advanced than the utter piles of shit that passed for cities in sub-saharan Africa.

    the walls of benin were destroyed by the british punitive expedition in 18967 (when they stole the bronzes) and later urb*nization
    it was a very impressive feat of engineering in the highly competitive but not super densely populated region (compared to other regions that built these sorts of earthworks) that the edo lived in

    Not OP, but outside of Egypt they really aren't. Even north Africa Egypt is really the exception.

    Nah, just Egypt.
    East Africa is like a cope used by people to say they know something from Africa outside Egypt. But the only thing they know is "Wow, the kingdom of Aksum was actually pretty powerful".

      Here's the actual Benin Wall
      It was never impressive in how it looked (like a pile of red mud) but due to extending on dozens of kms (which was considered impressive for black people)
