    To the Book worms of BN.
    Please does anyone know a good bookshop in Port Harcourt or Abuja where I can purchase books like; Da vinci code, The color purple, The book thief and so much more. I recently discorvered my passion for books and I wouldn’t want this flame to burn out. Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated as you help a young erudite!

      I got mine at BGMart, Ikeja. It was my first taste of dried fruits, didn’t like it. Tasted okay with cheese though 🙂

    This is sooooo inspiring! I applaud upcoming entrepreneurs who are unfazed by the condition of things in Nigeria and see it as an opportunity to make money and create employment. Like she said, its one thing to have lots of ideas but you have to start from somewhere.

      I don’t know how @Esther knows she is humble, but I can attest to the fact that she is, because I was opportuned to sit and chat with her at the just concluded SHAPE Africa 2014 conference in Abuja. I deduced that she knows her stuff very well, doesn’t flaunt her success and she is very down-to-earth.

    One of the most impressive things I have seen on Bella Naija…..Confident, Knowledgeable, and sound woman with a solid business idea. First I thought why would I eat dried fruits? Until I remembered plantain chips!!!!!! As long as it’s not more than N300, it should sell. Your market may even be overseas. Well done, I am proud to be Nigerian because of women like you!

    Totally impressed! I am in this line of biz and I can tell you hands down this is a woman who knows what she’ s doing. These are the people to be celebrated not all these unnecessary overhyped packaged people on every economic forum, award and co. Well done Affiong!

    Thanks to the people who commented so enthusiastically before me; you forced me to watch the video. I have to agree: she has poise, and there is a lot there. I’m astounded actually 🙂 and wish her team the best.
    Nowadays I happen to have the time and inclination to cut and eat my fruits myself, straight up; but I totally dig the idea of dried foods. It’s been long since I did a sun-dried tomato. Laa illah! Tomatoes can really be something.
