With years working in Nigeria’s entertainment industry, Ireti’s interests culminated in the launch of Street Souk in 2018, with its sophomore edition following in 2019. Ireti divides her time between her hometown of Lagos, and London. An alumni of the University of Manchester where she graduated with a 2.1 in International Business , Finance and Economics.

Ireti also holds an MSc in Marketing Strategy and Innovation from CASS Business School, London. Ireti’s deep immersion in pop culture spans from sports, to music, but her passion remains streetwear and its unique culture in Nigeria and around the world.

The success of her vision hasn’t gone unnoticed outside of Nigeria, either. The late Virgil Abloh – one of Street Souk’s greatest champions – once described the event as a key part of Africa’s “youth-driven fashion renaissance”. And among members of the Nigerian diaspora, it’s even cultivated a reputation as a necessary stop when back home for the holidays.
