May 5 2019 , Written by Caro Sika Published on #panafricanisme, #business, #ujamaa, #afroculture, #2019, #kemiseba

Two years ago, the Pan-African activist Kemi Seba, president of the NGO "Urgences Panafricanistes" launched an International Day to showcase and promote African production. See video below  (French only)

Kemi Seba is now at the initiative of the First Panafican Centre "CENTRE PANAF" to open its doors in Cotonou, Benin on Saturday 25th May 2019.

In a release on his Facebook Page, Kemi Seba expresses his joy : " I have the honour to announce to you that on 25th may 2019, the official opening of PANAF CENTRE will take place. It will be the 1st African PRODUCTION CENTRE to promote and sell local and continental products in COTONOU.

Several tens of thousands of euros were invested in this commerical space of 430m2 aiming to sell exclusively African and Afro Diasporic products, comprising of a supermarket 100% African, a RESTAURANT 100% African, a fashion BOUTIQUE 100% African (not to mention other boutiques that will open in the coming months).

It will showcase local producers, creators, patriotic entrepreneurs who are discriminated against for the benefit of foreign companies "We seek to demonstrate that entrepreunariat does not systematically rhyme with blind capitalism.

What an inspiring launch night listening to renowned international speakers sharing their passion and endorsing the YBBA's initiative to celebrate, reward and financially invest in our upcoming generation of young black innovative, creative and fierceless entrepreneurs, both men and women alike.

Donna Wilson in charge of YBBA project management and Viv Ahmun in charge of the Strategic vision shared in turn how crucial it was to push a different narrative about young black people and young black people in business.

This project was created to ensure that our next generation of entrepreneurs, visionaries, city builders, leaders and creatives are firmly located in the driver's seat of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It intends to spark one million black led 21st century startups and they are on a mission to get as many organisations, givers and policy makers as possible involved with the project.

Meet Omari McQueen, 10 year old CEO of Dipalicious

October 27 2018 , Written by www.afrocultureblog.com Published on #business, #afroculturekidz, #interview, #kids, #afroculture, #2018, #omarimcqueen

Omari McQueen, 10 year old CEO of Dipalicious

Budding business mogul Omari McQueen is set to impress foodies with his new vegan dip business, Dipalicious. At just ten years old, Omari is already the proud owner not only of his own food company, but a YouTube channel, 'The Mari Maker Show', where he enthuses about homemade vegan dishes and shows fans at home how to recreate them in style.

As one of six children, he learned how to cook very quickly from watching his mum and dad prepare large meals daily, and it wasn't long before he was rustling up his own culinary creations for family and friends, inspired by his Jamaican background and his love of great flavours! While making a vegan pizza, Omari decided to create a dip to accompany it – and the idea for Dipalicious was born.

Overcoming his natural shyness whena he's in the kitchen, Omari has always loved to cook, and creates all the dips he sells himself, before sharing them with the world via the Dipalicious website. As well as being tasty and nutritious, each dip is also 100% vegan approved, ensuring a healthy and ethical way to eat, all while supporting a new business venture from one of the UK's brightest young entrepreneurial talents.

The brand officially launched in 2017 when Omari was only eight, and the delicious flavours on offer currently include Caribbean Kick, Sweet Tooth and Coco Curry– each winning glowing reviews. Dipalicious is going from strength to strength as Omari experiments with new flavours to create vegan dips sure to suit even the most discerning palette.

"I want to create food which everyone can enjoy," says Omari. "That's what great food is all about, to me – it's a way to bring people closer together, and that's what I hope to do with Dipalicious."

When he's not building his brand, Omari enjoys spending time at home with his family and loves to dance along to his musical hero Michael Jackson.

Find out more about the brand and try the dips for yourself at the official website www.dipalicious.co.uk - Instagram @dipaliciousdips - twitter@omarimcqueen - Facebook @dipalicious
