We do it with GRACE and ELEGANCE as we celebrate ourselves as a people!


African Proverbs to keep in mind

“A fight between grasshoppers is a joy to the crow”

Meaning: The fight between the two only makes the enemy happy. When the two grasshoppers are fighting, they are not paying attention to the crow. The crow is the enemy and is trying to eat the grasshoppers. The grasshoppers are distracted by fighting each other and will not even see the crow coming. Before you know it the grasshoppers will be dead. Personally if you know you have an enemy that’s coming to get you and people like you then you would never fuss an put you guard down. You would always be ready, whatever problems that occur with your own people is not really a problem honestly. The real problem is the enemy, no bigger problem is bigger than them.


What inspires us

We are inspired by the fution of “Tradition meets modern” whereby the youth have taken tradition and its uniqueness and fused or forged rather a bold modern lifestyle that both enhances and respects the ORIGIN. Their ideas breaking stereotypes surrounding them and remodelling mindsets. DaciKey platform is a place where we share who we are and shaping our tomorrow.
