How my love for food started

The lady traced her love for cooking to her grandma. She added that the woman always frowned against buying meals from canteens because they could be unsafe for consumption. Grace said:

"...my grandma never allowed us buy food because she always complained of the hygiene. She didn't how it was being cooked and also because the meal was not economical. We cooked all the food that we ate while I was growing up. So this was where the love came from."

Challenges as a content creator in the food niche

Grace said that with content creation, there is always the need to learn new things. In that regard, it could be quite challenging. In her words:

"In food content creation, you can't say 'I have gotten a hang of it'. You always have to keep learning."

She added that the issue of space was also an obstacle she recently overcame. Like many entrepreneurs in Nigeria, Grace said electricity and funding also posed some challenges.

Grace decided to stick with creating food content rather than selling meals because the former is a hard task. She said:
