Agbogunleye and his partner have been serving up crispy, golden akara to hungry students and staff, and their roadside shop has become a sensation on TikTok.

In an exclusive interview with LegitNG Agbogunleye revealed how they’ve been able to turn their passion into a thriving business, leaving customers in awe of their dedication and delicious akara.

He said …

“Many are always amazed and impressed especially for the fact that we are corps members and we are selling akara. So they pray and also encourage us to keep pushing. As a matter of fact our akara has become the talk of the town all over UI since we started and people are referring one another to us and recommending our Akara because of its uniqueness and taste and also through the help of God.”

When asked about the status of their relationship, Agbogunleye revealed that they’re still in the courting phase. He added that they do make a lot of sales from their akara business.

“Yes, the patronage is very awesome and encouraging by the grace of God. We do have a large number of customers in front of us every day and God has been faithful all the way,” he added.

Oluwatosun revealed that the inspiration to launch their akara business came from their existing fast-food venture in school, which had already proven to be a hit.

“The fact that we were selling fast foods like noodles and egg, bread and egg, etc in school before we left school was one of the things that motivated us and also through inspiration, we just sat down and thought of doing something like that, then, it came true,” she said.

When the media outfit asked if they plan to continue their akara business after their service year, Oluwatosin’s response was a positive one.

“Yes, we would love to continue even after our service year, because there’s no employment anywhere. We just have to create one for ourselves and can in return create for others too, because we can become employers of labour through that, thereby creating an employment opportunities for people,” she said.
