  1. I would not have it any other way. I love your creativity and the amazing ideas to bring food, especially African food to a wider audience. Keep creating and Waakyeleaf will be on the tongues of everyone wanting that Afro-Fusion menu. Love you loads @waakyeleaf

  2. Just wanted to provide some feedback on The Waakye Weekend, it was absolutely amazing. Some of the best food we have had in 2020. The attention to detail was spot on and the sobolo was a nice touch.
    Please tell me you will be doing this again!

  3. What can I say!?!?!? The ambience yesterday was amazing! The presentation was tip top and let’s talk about that food… it was exquisite!
