I grew up in London as a first-generation northern Nigerian. As a child I was surrounded by my mum Binta’s traditional northern nigerian food and wanted to share it with others. While I was at university studying for an M.Sc, I entered a business competition for students. I did not have a name or branding at the time, just entered with the ‘Tomato and Red Pepper sauce’ in a glass jar with makeshift labels. On the night of the competition people loved the sauces, they sold out and we won by the people’s vote! This took me on a trajectory to start Binta’s Kitchen to share wellness and northern Nigerian foods with the world.
As an entrepreneur this podcast is a weekly space to share insights with you from guests with different backgrounds, experiences and learnings. I want to give you a look into what it’s like behind the scenes, being an entrepreneur, the deep, dark thoughts that nobody else will share with you and anything else that’s playing on my mind. This is not scripted and I don’t have questions, I just see where the conversation takes me.
