Introducing Africa to the World with Zobo and Arts.
Some of the first thoughts that come to people’s minds when Northern Nigeria is mentioned are: Boko Haram, poverty, conflicts or former Nigerian Heads of State, especially the unpopular ones. But there are lots of untold stories and money spinners buried in Northern Nigeria. On October 3rd, we discovered the health and economic benefits of shea, one of the region’s hidden gems. On today’s episode, we will be kicking things off with the business of Zobo – the hibiscus plant grown in Northern Nigeria, which has many health and economic benefits. My guest, Kehinde Olajide launched his zobo beverage business after a college food tasting event. I will also be talking to talented artist, Ade Olufeko about using African arts to bridge the information gap about Africa. You don't want to miss this one!
