Launched in 2017, Kandymusa.com is a space that create an experience that inspires my followers to try my northern recipes from my urban kitchen, it's a community of like-minded individuals that want to get inspiration, learn, connect and share their experiences with others, in areas such as fashion, food and life in general. 

This journey began 6 years ago with a solely fashion blog, as a project during my undergraduate years at university. Even though I studied Business Information Technology & International Relations, and have a Masters degree in Information Technology, fashion has always been an essential part of my life, that's where my creative side lies. I believe that we can make art with clothes, where I see myself as the artist, the body as the canvas and the clothes as the colours. 

Being Nigerian and having lived in the UK for 10 years, I usually find myself making northern dishes so that I can feel closer to home. Cooking has turned out to be one of my passions as well, surprisingly!

There's a freedom I find when I'm preparing food, especially when it's for someone else; I consider it loving and humane. We have an amazing culture, full of delicious dishes that I will share with my followers on this platform with the hope to inspire someone. 

I believe we all have a story to tell through our lifestyles and experiences, so welcome to mine and thank you so much for stopping by, you are very much welcome to explore, I hope I inspire you and I hope you find it interesting and learn a thing or two. Please feel free to share and keep coming back for more.

  3. My favourite place to visit is my village Zonkwa in Kaduna state. (Irreplaceable memories made with my family)
  4. I am a tea lover; I drink tea through the day regardless of the season.
  5. My favourite food is Indomie. (Serve me this breakfast, lunch and dinner) shocking i know coming from someone that loves to cook.
  6. My favourite TV show of all time is friends (If you haven’t watched this then you are really boring)

  8. I don’t know how to swim (I’m not ashamed to say it)
