Bellafricana was founded in November 2013 in Lagos, Nigeria. Bellafricana founder Bukky Asehinde (née Bello) moved back to Nigeria after her studies in the United Kingdom in September 2012 and commenced her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC, a compulsory service for Nigerian graduates) which was where the main genesis of the company began. Bukky soon fell exceptionally in love with the creativity shown by Creative African Entrepreneurs and she wanted to make a difference.
