About Us

FOAKI is a UK based accessory store created by Yossy Akinsanya.

The name is a combination of my full first name 'Fo-layosade' and my surname 'Aki-nsanya'. My reason for using my name for the store and giving a majority of my pieces African,  predominantly Nigerian names is because my first name is something I use to be embarrased by but there is so much beauty behind African names and I wanted to embrace my name that my parents gifted me and also make it a household name while I'm at it.
