Business Impact Award


What motivated you to start your business? Why are you passionate about what you do?

Inspired by a journey to Ghana, West Africa to embrace my heritage and culture. Naa Sheka which started as a line based in Ghana, originally called West African Fashion, utilized only local West African fabrics to create designs and styles popular in modern Western culture. The daughter of a Ghanaian father and a Canadian mother, the designer was born in Vancouver, Canada but traveled to Africa to attend a semester exchange program at the University of Ghana in 2006. While on a visit to Ghana, Naa Sheka was captivated by the local fabrics and textiles, which inspired her to create her own fashion label. Her goal was to showcase the richness of Ghanaian culture through its dynamic fabrics and traditional textiles in a way that reflected the cultural diversity of her upbringing in Canada. Naa Sheka fell in love with Ghana and the hustle and bustle of establishing her own company, and focus on her West African Fashion line. In 2012, Naa Sheka decided to simplify the fashion line to only bags and accessories. The restructuring from clothes to accessories allowed for a larger market to be reached and to be recognized for the vibrant textile colors and African-style of the accessories. All of the company’s products were produced eco-friendly. Ethical fashion is at the heart of Naa Sheka fashion, providing jobs with fair wages to Ghanaians in the Accra region. This has always been a priority and an important part of the designer’s motivation and legacy in building a fashion brand. In 2019 Naa Sheka noticed the popularity of African fashion becoming a more dominant style in western culture, and she decided to return to her passion of clothing. After learning and developing her skills as an entrepreneur and fashion designer, she re-branded her West African Fashion line to Naa Sheka. After a few more years of work, the new 2021 Men’s and Women’s Naa Sheka Apparel Collection was created, a blend of traditional West African textiles with a chic urban flavour that is both comfortable and high-quality. Proud to have both her West African and Canadian cultural influences to draw inspiration from, Naa Sheka celebrated this unique blend of cultures in a way that is accessible and inclusive for everyone. Her personal history, passions, and identity set her personal brand apart, while pushing fashion into the future, where marrying culture with style is promoted ethically and authentically into the mainstream.

Why do you deserve to win the Business Impact award?

In my humble opinion, I think I am deserving of winning this business award because I started this business as a 22-year old bi-racial Canadian-Ghanaian woman who was raised by a single mother in poverty. Growing up in poverty enabled me to never take anything for granted in life. Additionally, Growing up low income motivated me to always work hard and to give back to others. My business is a reflection of my multi-cultural heritage and my work ethic. I have grown this business exponentially over the past several years and I hope by winning this award it will be inspirational for others who grow in poverty to not let the circumstances that they were born in limit their dreams and aspirations.
