Dillish once said that the restaurant is not meant to cater to everybody. 
"We are mainly targeting a certain market and I am sure if we were overpriced we would not have the regular customers. If people can accept prices from other food outlets without complaining, why can’t they also accept this proudly Namibian product?"

Everytime I have been to Nigeria I got treated so well, their generosity and strong positive outlook on life taught me so much. In December I took part in a great initiative to fight against Malaria in Nigeria and it was a huge pleasure to be a part of it' because Nigerians always had my back since Big Brother Africa days. It's with thus that I wish my African sisters and brothers in Nigeria a fruitful and peaceful election day.
