Ikechi Nwabuisi joins Ndidi Love in DiasporAfri’s first ever double interview! Ikechi is a tech founder, entrepreneur, social media influencer, visionary, & participant in TechStars Seattle 19’! He employs a dynamic team of all Black & Brown people from various diverse parts of the Diaspora. I was so excited to interview him about his vision behind TRiBL: an innovative, groundbreaking new app that connects the Black Diaspora all over the world. The vision behind the app is so eloquently described by Ikechi in this interview where he even discusses the journey to his success, & the most important parts of his culture that shaped his success. My favorite line was when he stated, “Success is a series of painful failures… people need to have a safe space to fail, & fail hard”; that line has stuck with me to this day, a whole month and a half later! You’ll also be so inspired by the many gems he dropped in this interview.
When I first discovered the TRiBL app in November 2018, I was extremely excited as I had the previous week been looking for an app such as this, then I got a couple of comments on my IG posts from the TRiBL network, & decided to explore what the TRiBL network was all about! I quickly discovered that DiasporAfri met a match! A fellow visionary using our gifts to bring the Global Diaspora together. Since then, I’ve made new friends on the app, had daily group chats, and made some meaningful connections with Black people from all parts of the world! I encourage all to download and discover your tribe near you! Or far, but the app will bring you closer 😄.

What faith requires! Our faith is designed by God’s purpose for us, it doesn’t have to look the same for everybody!
Enjoy Loves! 💛🖤💛
Accountability, it’s the thing that keeps us in check. At the end of every day, I always ask myself what I could’ve done different, and I try to keep people around me who aren’t afraid to let me know as well. It’s not that we are always wrong and never do anything right, but it’s just an opportunity to evaluate ourselves. We should also give ourselves credit when we do something right. We should always be evolving and not making the same mistakes.
When I started this journey towards the Global Black Redemption Story, highlighted in my recently published book; I was willing to be so wrong. I kept asking God if I was wrong, stop me in my tracks. However, I kept going based on the faith inside of me. I talk a lot about accountability leading up to the conclusion of getting to the message God had for me. I got distracted, a lot! I would have been had the message out there had I not been so distracted during those 8 years. A lot of things happened to me because I got distracted and didn’t listen to my spirit; in some situations, that was my only wrong. Therefore, I found a way to be accountable, and I will no longer make the mistake of not listening to my spirit.
There are situations that are beyond our control, life comes with certain issues to overcome. Let’s just make sure we’re not inviting things in that we’ll regret. Accountability is understanding that it’s ok to be wrong, while making sure we learn, trying our hardest not to do that thing again.
