About the blogger:
I’m Minna Salami, the founder of this blog.
I call myself Afropolitan as I was born in Finland, grew up in Nigeria and studied in Sweden. I’ve also lived and worked in Spain and New York. Currently I reside in London and Lagos.
I love learning new languages and speak five (well, if I count in shy German).
I’m a fun person although I studied Politics at uni. Really, it’s true!
Sorry, I don’t eat Salami.
I have an affinity for commas that sometimes results in grammatical errors, so, thankfully, this blog, ain’t a dissertation.
I love veggie sausages.
I also love coconuts and EVERYTHING that contains coconut; coconut candles, coconut body lotion, coconut rice, coconut ice cream, beaches with coconut palm trees…
