A few weeks ago, my #TwitterCrush hooked me up to Afua, who in turn introduced me to Yaw. Yaw is the very handsome co-founder of Bandeka and wanted to chat to me about the online dating site he has started with his friend Tunde. Yaw was a delight to chat to. Funny, intelligent and very easy on the eyes…men who are easy on the eyes are a particular weakness. In fact people who are easy on the eyes are a particular weakness but I ramble….
I’m intrigued by the concept of Bandeka. Especially by the Pan-African element intrinsic within the model. I like that when you sign up to the site they have all types of African languages listed, so you can hook up with a Swahili-English-French-Akan speaking brother, or a Hausa-French-Ibo-English speaking sister.
I wondered if the site was designed for heterosexuals only, as that would be a minus in my opinion but its not. So you can be a woman looking for a woman for friendship only, a man looking for a woman for a serious relationship and even a woman looking to play matchmaker. How fun.
Somehow, Yaw used the power of his good looks to charm me into signing up to the site, and has promised to find me a hot date sometime soon which will make make my Mum very happy. Yaw I’m still waiting…
Bandeka’s had some fun launch parties across the globe, and Yaw has assured me there will be one in Accra before the year ends. I’ve already roped one of the regular commenters on this blog, Kofi A. to come as my date. I’ve asked the folks at Bandeka to send me a write up on a previous event so expect some more posts on Bandeka shortly.
Oh and Yaw is single as well so if you fancy him holla at him via his site.
