We had the good fortune of connecting with Axé Osei Vita and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Axé Osei, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I learned entrepreneurship from my father ever since I was a little kid…It was , whether street performing , The Bozo Circus Show, and or Ringling Brothers Circus,NBA/NFL/MLB ,I attained it all, at the age of 4yrs. old. I was already performing for massive amounts of crowds..So at an early age I understood about working for myself ,creating ideas ,being an artist, performing and learning how to use my own skills and having the ability in creating platforms to work for myself ..

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I come from a Family of Martial Artist & Acrobats , being the first black acrobats to perform at Ringling Brothers Circus , I was born a Vegetarian, So I’ve never ate meat in my life…. this set the foundation for being comfortable in my uniqueness , and knowing that’s what sets me apart….

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’d take to Leimert Park my childhood friends has an mazing Coffee Shop there and its got tons of great vegan options etc. I’ve go to Venice beach a place that I grew up at super eclectic Vibe Abbot Kinney is also an awesome area in Venice!!
would definitely take them to take A Capoeira class with.
