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.
I have a lot of Nigerian friends and not one of them has ever baked anything for me when I showed up at their door. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out that there exists an indigenous dry confectionery mix market in Nigeria! I was curious to find out more and also baffled at my own ignorance. I have always professed that African people don't really do the whole oven baking thing but that's a lie. It is because I don't know how to bake and find that it is easy to blame it on others. Perhaps my Nigerian friends bake for their children and chose to only cook Egusi Soup for me.
