About us

Decades ago, we were fine with our messages getting to a loved one week or months after. Today, we’re restless when they don’t respond immediately when we see “Delivered” 😂.
Same goes for our money. We used to be fine with money taking days to get to our family and friends across borders. Now, we want to save the day and be there for them at the speed of light.

We want to provide a formal, safe and efficient way for Africans to exchange currencies across borders. With us, you can determine how far your money can go at the click of a button

Kyshi (pronounced kee-
shee) comes from Kishi, the
Nigerian and Ghanaian slang
for "money".

It all started in 2011, when Ayo conceived the idea of Kyshi, It was difficult for him and his community to receive and send funds from Nigeria to the UK. Ayo, being a firm believer of “if you don’t like it, fix it” - created Kyshi.
