New Buzz: Soko Stingo By FashionistaGH

Style markets seem to be new trend of shopping all over the world. One of those catching on this trend early enough is FashionistaGH with the starting up of the Soko Stingo market.

A group of young entrepreneurs have identified this lucrative sector and seized the opportunity to promote designers, create opportunities and connect creatives in Africa.

The maiden event of the market took place in Accra, Ghana on October 9, 2011 with 16 stalls showcasing goods from brands such as Zali, Sleek, Orange Culture, Diva Delicious and Cool Beans and selling almost everything from hair, clothing to food. The market recorded a huge success and attracted over 300 visitors.

According to Soko Stingo’s financial director, Adebayo Oke-Lawal, “It’s the first creative market that doesn’t have the sole goal of selling. We aim to build a platform to help African entrepreneurs to get to the next level. It&#39s about building a relationship that brings people together all over Africa, from Botswana to Dakar”.

Climbing on the success of the maiden event, the market is now scheduled to take place every quarter with the next one to hold in Ghana this December 2011. A percentage of all proceeds from the market will be donated to African charities.
