FirstCheck Africa was built by Odunayo Eweniyi and Eloho Omame as a fundraising organization to help discover women in need by providing funds for these women to start their careers. Odunayo has worked up her portfolio through building her career in journalism, writing and technology. In 2014 alone, she worked as a founding writer at Zikoko!, an online magazine. She was also the editor-in-chief at Techpoint at some point in her career.

Being the founder of PiggyVest, an app that is used nationwide to mostly help youths save money, Odunayo has cemented her name in the history of Nigerians and Africans for creating such technology that has come to help a lot.
