It’s a product intended for the global African and Caribbean communities. Our aim is to empower people to connect to their culture. It recognises that there are over a billion Africans around the world. It’s a product where the profiles are rich and cultural, I can show on my profile that I’m Dayo from London, but also that I’m originally from Nigeria. I can talk about the tribe that I’m from and the languages I speak. I found when I was using Tinder, the data wasn’t rich enough for me to take decisions.

I was motivated to set the app up because I believe the mainstream dating apps don’t provide Africans with a good dating experience. The aim of Africlick is to provide a safe and encouraging safe for Africans to date. I personally had bad experiences on other dating apps where race was a key factor in the interactions. There are numerous studies, including the okay cupid race and attraction study, that shows that black users are less likely to get matches on online dating and are more likely to face racism. Statistically, the African population represents 17% of the world. So I thought why shouldn’t there be a product out there that is dedicated to us and caters to our culture.
