We had the good fortune of connecting with Ayo Shofoluwe and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ayo, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
There are several factors that accumulate to one’s success. I believe our commitment to executing at the highest level of excellence to fulfill our organization’s vision and bring value to our growing audience is a major factor of our success at PeacexPiece, Inc. We are dedicated to finding innovative ways to represent our brand to reach more people. I am driven by my desire to inspire people on a global scale with the valuable content we bring to the lifestyle and entertainment industry. We are building meaningful connections with people through the creative arts to achieve a deeper understanding and appreciation of the human experience.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
PeacexPiece, Inc. is a philanthropic organization dedicated to empowering people through the advancement of the arts and bringing awareness to issues of concern in the community at large. We aim to be one of the world’s leading lifestyle brands in the arts and entertainment industry. As CEO, I specialize in the creative direction, executive production, and strategic planning of the organization. From developing strategies to executing projects, I am committed to making personal connections with people in the community, nation, and around the world through the creative arts medium.
In hindsight, I believe the commitment to our culture of excellence as an organization is what separates us from the rest. We are driven by our core values such as integrity, compassion, and consistency to name a few. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. We are always looking for new ways to present our brand to reach more people. I am proud to announce that we recently launched our new website earlier this year. I am looking forward to utilizing our website to further advance our mission of inspiring people and cultivating a global community of supporters.
There has been a significant learning curve between where we started and where we are now as an organization. Despite the challenges we faced in the past, we confidently overcame them by pushing forward with constant persistence. There will always be hardships and pain along the journey of destiny, but that pressure is necessary for the building of character. In life, things fall apart the same way they fall together, piece by piece.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely recommend visiting Aria Suya Kitchen which is a West African Restaurant with a contemporary twist. I would also take my friends to the SAiD Institute which is a Pan-African library with cultural events. Lastly, I would recommend visiting 3 Tees Shawarma for some delicious food.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have to attribute who I am today to my family. They have been my support system from the very beginning. I am grateful for their love, encouragement, inspiration and prayers regarding my life. My family is extremely important to me and I deeply appreciate them for always being there.
