From July 3rd to 13th, join us on to win hundreds of free vouchers, prizes and of course deals for up to 50% off. This is one party you don’t want to miss!

Who are the faces that make us Jumia? What are their stories? Below, we feature our favourite tales from the 5-year journey. More to come in the following weeks!



  • Akinwunmi got a shocker on his first day at work.

  • A famous leadership expert once wrote “a true leader always finds a way for the team to win, Ayoyemi sure embodies this enviable trait.

  • You know those friends that have “adopted” your family, they almost have more access than you do. Oluwaseun is just like that – a Jumia vendor turned family member.


  • Every great thing ever built thrived on the sacrifices of men and women who saw beyond prevailing conditions of the moment and stayed to watch it blossom. Tosin and her team put in that “extra”.



  • The end of a thing could mean the start of something better and greater. Jeddy saw new opportunities in what may have appeared hopeless.



  • Nwaneri has recorded tremendous success as a Jumia vendor. See what she has to say about her growth journey.


  • Here at Jumia, we are driven by passion, dedication and the kick that comes with being a part of something huge and successful. This has kept our Head of Legal going.



Again, You Make Us Jumia, thank you!
