Dr. Gregson Orobosa Oghafua created the FUFUMAGIC and the FufuMagic YamPounder for all of those who love fufu!
Dr. Oghafua was born in Benin City, Nigeria. He emigrated to the United States of America at the age of 17 to go to college. Like almost all African immigrants, he worked odd jobs — dishwasher, janitor, security guard, and machinist while paying his way through college and Medical School.
He received his MD (Doctor of Medicine) from Howard University College of Medicine in 1984. He followed with his Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at Howard University Hospital and a Fellowship in Cardiology at Howard University Hospital. He went on to a Cardiology Fellowship, which included Interventional Cardiology, at Louisiana State University Medical Center in Shreveport, Louisiana. Dr. Gregson Oghafua is board certified in cardiovascular diseases and has practiced cardiology for almost 30 years.
Because of his love of fufu, Dr. Oghafua has worked hard to develop the FUFUMAGIC. Development of FUFUMAGIC began as soon as God blessed him with the original invention in December 2004.
Dr. Oghafua heard the request of his customers who wanted him to create a real, quality Cook+Pound Yam Pounder and now has created the original FufuMagic YamPounder.
