Mikey's Message


Surulere - Lagos, Nigeria was where I was born and raised. One of my earliest memories was my mother making chin-chin. My brother, best friend, and I would sneak in the kitchen to fill our pockets with the cooling chin-chin and eat to our hearts content as we’d watch TV.

When I got older I found myself standing next to her, learning what made her chin-chin so popular. My mother left for America in 2008 and in the blink of an eye, there was no more chin-chin.

In 2013, I got a craving for it and thought I’d try my hand at it. The taste immediately brought me back to five year old me. As the keeper of my mothers decades old recipe, I’d love to bring that same joy and excitement I had to you and your family.
