Grace Dent follows 23 year old Koye as he weighs up whether to abandon his homegrown fashion label for a corporate job in the City of London.

Koye's Nigerian parents - who've spent a fortune on his education - are desperately keen for him to get a job in the City. But Koye himself is torn. He's also the sole force behind successful African street wear brand Mojo Kojo. This is where his heart truly lies.

We follow him as he goes through the gruelling process of applying for City graduate schemes and confronts the possibility of leaving behind the business he's worked so hard to establish.

Producer: Mariana Des Forges
