According to Omotayo, whose bio reads that he is the CEO of Aridan Construction Nigeria, he paid Bloomberg and Google a visit and found out they gave their staff free food every day.

On returning to Nigeria, he decided to replicate it at his company but it didn't sit well with some of his workers.
