Nigerian entrepreneur makes queens of Africa dolls

Queens of africa dolls

Seven years ago, Taofick Okoya started a business to manufacture his Queens of Africa dolls.

Okoya could not find a black doll for his daughter in a marketplace dominated by blonde, blue-eyed Barbie doll made by the toy giant Mattel, and so he decided to atack the problem himself.

Seven years later, Taofick Okoya says he sells up to 9,000 of his Queens of Africa dolls a month and he is looking to expand his market to the US and Europe.
