We recently had the honour of meeting with Prof. Mamokgethi Phakeng. Here’s what she had to say about ProjectiYoruba’s Master Crafter, Akindele Olunloyo’s craftsmanship.
Ladies & gentlemen, compatriots, bazalwane, members of the LGBTIQA+ and members of the opposition please have a look at what I got from Akindele today. Yes he makes ottomans and this range is called ‘Project Yoruba’ hand made with hand painted fabric from Nigeria. Very comfortable. One ottoman costs R1500, so I decided to get two. I saw smaller ones too made from mixed materials costing R350. As usual I am sharing this with you in my quest to support young black entrepreneurs who choose to work hard rather than just complain or sit and wait for the government to do something for them. If you want to get some for yourself please call Akin at +27 (72) 2960215. #ibuylocal #isupportyoungentrepreneurs #isupportblackbusiness
