Today we’d like to introduce you to Bolaji Ajike.
Hi Bolaji, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I emigrated to America from Lagos, Nigeria at the age of seven with my parents, who were seeking opportunity, upward mobility, and the American Dream. Over the years, I developed a passion for service and a passion for the economic success of the African Diaspora. After earning my Master’s in Public Administration, I set out to be a “rebuilder of economic anomalies” within the Black community, such as the much-touted “Black Wall Street.” I want to see a Black Wall Street in every melanated community globally.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Honestly, it was just not that hard because from the onset, I was supported by my friends and family who just organically shared my content and anything that I put up about Black-Owned Businesses, etc. Using my social media platforms, I consistently give visibility to any and all Black-Owned businesses that I come in contact with or that are shared with me. I align business owners with clients/customers by being the “PLUG” when anyone needs to find a specific business/product. Sharing products, Services, and also often patronizing them myself. I first used my radio show/podcast platform “GoddessTalk Radio Show” then transitioned it to a visual show in itself, “GoddessTalk Show” where I held interactive conversations with different business owners about their entities. My moto was “Educating, Engaging, and Enriching our Melanated Communities.” Discussions centered around community involvement and encouraged collaboration as well as provide enlightening information, resources, and problem-solving solutions. I strongly believe that in working together on an economic level, the Global Diaspora can create a seismic economic shift.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I premiered GoddessTalk Radio Show in June 2019 to expose the world to Black Businesses, activists, and difference-makers, causing seismic economic shifts across the globe. To further those efforts in July 2020, I launched the GoddessTalk App, the diaspora’s premiere marketplace app. I’m proud to announce that on December 4th, 2020, GoddessTalk Network was birthed. I am now the CEO of a multimedia network of creators circulating content, information, resources, and commerce on a global scale across all streaming platforms and coming soon to cable networks.
Are there any apps, books, podcasts, blogs or other resources you think our readers should check out?
RJ Stevenson’s book Reimagining What God Can Do Through You: Reimaging your mission, vision, and value (coming soon). AKAnundrum and CRWND apps. And most importantly, my self-care days along with hanging with my friends and family.
