Black business of the day: Nim's Din

PICTURED: Nimatu Owino

NIM'S DIN and CHAM CHAM are the brainchildren of Nimatu Owino of Sierra Leone- an and Liberian heritage. It all began with her writing recipes on her blog.

When the Ebola crisis became prevalent four years ago, she decided to raise money for some Ebola charities and the supper club was founded!

She named it CHAM CHAM, meaning small bites to eat or snacks, in Krio (the defacto national language of both Sierra Leone and Liberia) and began serving Sierra Leonean and Liberian feasts to Londoners.

A few months of hosting the supper clubs led to a natural progression in hosting them on a more regular basis. Alongside this, Nimatu has continued to work with various charities such as Street Child and LunchBoxGift.

She has even found time to create and sell her own line of CHAM CHAM Hot Pepper Sauce using a recipe based on hot pepper sauces made in these west African countries, and she is currently expanding the range.
