The host

Tailored businessThe show is hosted by Rwandan, Tania Habimana, who is touted as the person responsible for bringing luxury menswear brand, Suitsupply, to Africa. The show highlights her skills as a young female tailor, business woman and aspiring entrepreneur. “I will make made-to-measure suits for established businesspeople and use this opportunity to interview, gain insights, and advice from successful Africans who have overcome challenges inside and outside the African continent, “she said.  “Speaking to all these entrepreneurs from different industries, not only guides me in how to grow my own business, but also illustrates to us all the diverse opportunities that exist in Africa”.

Habimana is no stranger to the entertainment industry. She had in her youth years led a side career as a blogger/writer for European publications, which published articles on a wide range of African topics. This included promoting a positive Africa, as well as lifestyle, fashion and entertainment for the African diaspora. “There is a big difference between the Africa my parents talked about and the one I witnessed, versus the continent that I saw portrayed in the media and at school growing up. We all need to see the version that no one’s speaks about: the version that sits in the middle between ‘a continent on the rise’ and a ‘desperate continent’, the true version.”
