I was challenged by Martha Mghendi-Fisher, Founder of the European Women in Payments Network and the African Women in FinTech and Payments Network to record a FinTech Rap (The FinTech Rap) after none other than Chris Skinner took to the Mic for his first-ever live rap (you can watch that here).
I’ll let you be the judge but I think it’s fair to say that I’ll stick to my day job!
In case you can’t bear to hear me rap, here are the lyrics!
Martha Fisher nominated me to do this rap
I won’t be offended if you think this is crap
Jumping on the bandwagon some may say
But what they hell, Covid’s here to stay
Africa’s my home and fintech is my passion
Finding great talent like it’s going out of fashion
I value my time and value my team
It’s not about size, rather keeping it lean
My wife would agree, she says that a lot
Who am I to argue, she’s the boss
Aside from my wife I have lots of women
Who I strive to support and get them winning
Too many men on FinTech ExCo’s
We need more diversity and not ego’s
If you want VC’s and PE’s to invest
Building a great team is what we do best
Serious Investors don’t buy into apps or PPT’s
They focus on leaders who increase balance sheets
Rapping clearing isn’t my forte
But give me a mandate and we’ll blow you away
I’m done with my rap, you’ll probably be pleased
Perhaps next time I can rap in Chinese.
