“The key thing to networking is really showing up as yourself. Being comfortable with your authentic self.”
Tokunbo Koiki is a multi passionate entrepreneur, founder of the award-winning Tokunbo’s Kitchen and the London African Food Week.
Tokunbo means ‘From across the Sea’ in Yoruba – a language and tribe from Nigeria. In true embodiment of her name, Tokunbo has brought her heritage from across the sea sharing her passion for the numerous culinary delights that Nigeria has to offer.
Tokunbo has a fervent desire to build communities. She believes food to be a great unifier and is just one of the means in which she uses to accomplish this. As a result of her award-winning skills and warm personality, Tokunbo has had several press features as a leading voice for West Africa cuisine. She has also curated events on food, entrepreneurship and diversity with business giants such as Google and Facebook.
A former social worker, forward-thinking fashionista, Podcast host and “social-connector” Tokunbo is continually embracing her multi-faceted nature. When she is not cooking up a storm in the kitchen or regaling guests with my epic stories, you are most likely to find her in the centre of a dance floor bringing the party to life!
