Isoken, the force of a city
Benin City was the workspace of a little girl who was born to a medical doctor - Dr. Efemwenkeankean Yellow Igbinigie and his wife - Enegbegbana Stella Igbinigie, a market trader. Workspace, because at a very tender age, soon after the death of her father, when her mother had to work to raise money to fend for the family, Isoken was introduced to trading in the most basic way – hawking. She did not have to, for her mother’s income was fairly stable and could adequately take care of her and her older brother, Tony.
