What’s Your Backstory?

Remember when Fatu Ogwuche asked everyone on Twitter X a question and had us all reveal our life stories on the internet?

Well, this time she’s taking to our screens and asking our favourite tech entrepreneurs the  exact same question, “What is your backstory?” 

Everyone has a backstory; a series of big and small moments that push you into your destiny. For Cinderella, it was losing her glass slipper. For the entire world, it was Eve eating that apple. For tech entrepreneurs like Odun Eweniyi of Piggyvest and FemCo, Olumide Soyombo of Voltron Capital and Kola Aina of Ventures Platform, we don’t know their full stories yet, but “Backstories with Fatu” promises to bring them to a screen near you.

The first season premieres on YouTube at 3:00 p.m. on the 28th of November, and we already can’t wait to watch it. The trailer teases the show content with Odun Eweniyi talking about the backlash Femco faced post EndSARS, Olumide Soyombo reflecting on his time as a bus conductor and Kola Aina explaining why he doesn’t back jerks.

From the trailer alone, it’s easy to see how entertaining and informative this talk is shaping up to be.

You don’t have to take our word for it. But do something: Set your alarm for 3:00 p.m, sit tight and watch all your favourite tech babes and bros dish on what made them, what almost broke them and how they’ve come so far.
