- Nigerian mother and son, Matthew and Sade Omeye-Howell, have opened an African cuisine restaurant in Dalston, East London
- The mother-son enterprise began in 2015, serving sumptuous African meals at a market
- Just recently, the business called Jollof Box moved to a permanent site, with their mission to keep serving various African dishes
Nigerian mother and son, Matthew and Sade Omeye-Howell, have taken a huge step in making African dishes global. The mother-son duo found Jollof Box in 2015 and started serving famous African meals from a stall at Old Spitalfields Market in London.
To take their enterprise further, they joined the BBC series Dragons’ Den in hopes to secure N27 million winning prize for investment. Although they didn't get it, the two managed to secure other major deals that birthed their permanent site which is now opened in Dalston, East London.
The journey so far has been amazing for the mother-son duo who have creatively designed a menu named after great African football players. Customers of the Jollof Box are afforded the luxury of ordering their favourite African players as meals and enjoying every bit of the signature meal.
Interestingly, some dishes on the menu not only showcase a rich African heritage but also attempts to display the style in which meals are thought and created locally.
Meanwhile, a newlywed overturned the tradition of marriage as they opted to do what they could afford as opposed to what is obtainable.
The new couple, Victoria and Tom Browne, went ahead to order a $350 Dominos pizza and served them at their wedding.
Victoria, who already has three children for her husband, said she and her hubby are known not to always go the traditional route.
