Meet Mavis Anagboso

I am from the Itsekiri tribe of the Niger Delta part of Nigeria and was born in the “oil city” of Warri.

Although Scotland is home to me now, I am never far from my birth home as my husband and sons share my love of Nigerian food like jollof rice, pounded yam and ogbonno soup.

I love the outdoors and spend weekends walking in the beautiful Scottish countryside hills.

Meet Eugene Izuka Ogosi

I am married to a lovely lady, Ehis and a dad of two beautiful girls. I live and work as an engineer in Aberdeen.

I was born in Benin City, southern Nigeria, West Africa. My ancestral hometown is Asaba which is located at the western bank of the Niger River also south of Nigeria.

In my spare time I enjoy running, reading, and playing chess.

Meet Ejiro Akiri

My name is Ejiro Akiri, one of the founders of the Africulture Network. I moved to Scotland in 2003 and have called Scotland home for the last 20 years. 

The Africulture Network for me is a vision come true, as it gives us an opportunity to share with everyone, the rich cultural heritage of Africa. I got involved because of the powerful learning opportunities such a platform will provide through art and culture. We want to tell the African story and change perceptions about the continent. Our medium is through art, music, storytelling, drama, and it will provide insight into our diverse cultural heritage and histories. Educate, Empower, Excite.
