African and Caribbean people in the diaspora looking to start a business or enter the food (popups, supperclubs and restaurant) sector should especially read about Omolara Tayo-Sobajo a British-Nigerian Entrepreneur. You should then share her story and follower her. We need more strong female characters in business that can become icons to the young Africans on the continent of Africa and children of Africa descent around the world. We need to give the next generation, the growing population of the future positive ideas, people and leaders to aspire to. Please read on.
How did it all start?
It started the night after I waited two hours for jerk chicken that was meant to be ready in “another fifteen minutes” at a garden party at the end of last year summer and in so doing missed the act I went there to see, Femi Kuti!
On getting home I went online and took steps that led to the implementation of an idea that I had been thinking about for over a year. This was the genesis of Tee’s Food Corner with the vision of “bringing Nigerian food to a global audience”.
Coconut cake can be bought on the street anywhere in West Africa but I've not managed to come across it anywhere in the western world. I suspect the Arab or Asian corner shops may stock it somewhere obscure......either that or I'm blind.
