Quote - “Afropolitan means remembering who we were in the last thousand years at scale”

The Afropolitan Podcast spotlights Afropolitans who aren’t afraid to step into the unknown and walk in purpose. With this podcast we hope to empower Africans in the Diaspora to harness their full potential and contribute to the development of a bold and progressive black community.

Our guests will share their working formulas, the hard facts about leaving familiar terrain, embracing the unknown, and staying relevant afterwards.

This episode features Ibi Cookey, Co-Founder of Fitted; a fashion-tech company revolutionising scalable custom fashion.

Ibi is an international business management graduate and a former investment banker. He is passionate about simplifying the custom fashion supply chain for all stakeholders.
