Meet Blessing Ewulo  

My name is Ewulo Blessing, my nickname is Unique Bee. 

I am a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University,  Ile Ife.  I studied food science and engineering, currently undergoing my youth service with Standards organisation of Nigeria (SON). 

I am an entrepreneur; a clothier. 

I would say being an entrepreneur has always been my thing. I got this from my mum who in her little way has done a lot of businesses  in combination with her job as a civil servant. She is retired now and still does business. I have helped market quite a number of products for my mum. So, I decided to start a business of selling Adire in my third year in school, I was undergoing my Industrial training at 7up bottling Company Abuja.

I bless God for how far he has taken the business. Convincing people to buy a particular brand of fabric they are not normally used to can be very challenging. However, once they have gotten positive comments about the product, they tend to patronize more. The important thing with sales of a product is your ability to convince your customers to patronize you. 

There is still a lot of grounds to cover in the area of my business. It is my dream by the grace of God to get majority (if not all) of the people I come in contact with to wear the made in Nigeria fabric known as “Adire”. I want to make this an acceptable way of dressing among every tribe and culture not just the Yoruba tribe. I also look forward to exporting this fabric. 

Here are some beautiful pictures of Adire rockers I found;

Adekunle Gold 😘 

In five years, Lol… You will probably find me at one of my chain of stores that deals on African fabrics as a whole,  especially made in Nigeria fabrics (Adire, Aso okê, and others)

Asides this, for fun, I watch movies a lot, I sew,  I am not much of an outdoor person but I like hanging out with friends when I can.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Keeps me going. 

You can reach us on Instagram @adirehub or send us a mail.

  A big shout out to NANCY a friend I met in camp who introduced me to this blog. Shout out to my mum too,  for being my inspiration.

Meet BuzeB

My name is Abu Eche Ben. BuzeB is my nickname.

I am a graduate of Mathematic/computer science (ed) and I am presently a corps member serving in Enugu state.

I am a fashion designer (BuzeB clothings). We are into designing and sewing of wears both male and female. We practically make everything!

 We also teach and graduate tailors and designers. I am just a young man trying to make good clothes, see people wear my clothes and make a living. 

BuzeB clothing started with the sewing and selling of just trousers. We did that for two years, then in my final year in university I took my savings to open a tailoring house and we have been trying hard  to make it bigger. 

The journey so far has being good. There are  a lot of challenges in tailoring especially meeting up with clients’ timing and also getting yourself known. 

Our success story; we were nominated for fashion designer of the year in Benue Youth Choice Award 2017.

 We also showcased in Benue’s Fashion week 2017 and many others opportunities. There are hardly ever opportunities for designers in Nigeria, you just have to work your way to the top.
My dreams is to be one of the best fashion designers on the face of our planet and my wears would sell like Gucci, Prada and so on.
5 years from now, I should be the best designer in Nigeria and I should be selling as much as a thousand wears in a week! 😉  

Aside tailoring, I like cooking. So I  think I  would have been a chef 😁 
The quote “nothing good comes easy” keeps me going.
My shout out goes to my family, especially my elder sister for her support since day one, my friends and most especially the most high God almighty…

Ode to a Phoenix 

I woke up on the 20th day of March 2017 and looked around the room we shared for about four years. There was a lady with red hair on the bed. I know she is not wearing a red hair, so who is this? Oh! This is my baby sis. 

It all started coming back. She is married now. The inevitable tinge of loneliness crept in, lagos will never be the same for me without her. However great joy also filled my heart, finally!!! They are legal. I am so happy for them, rest assured that she is well taken care of and happy. 

I arrived the University of Lagos, Akoka and my first set of roommates would not stop talking about an amazing lady. One day, shouts of “she is back” filled the air. I had to see her, so I found a reason to go to the house. She answered the door and her eyes made me stagger. Pure light brown and strokes of green. Did I say a word?  Did I walk or run to my room? I cannot tell. I just wanted to hide from the eyes that seemed to look into my soul. And God!  She was beautiful. 

Over time, we bonded. And she became everything I prayed for and more. 

She is a God lover, one who will go the extra mile to seek God and do his will. A hardworker, one who puts her very soul into any task at hand she has to do. A chef indeed, I think I am still under the spell of her jollof rice 😁. She is a ‘Faither’ I had to coin that word for her. She is one of the most optimistic persons I know who would find solution to almost any problem and believe until it comes to pass. She is beautiful inside out; not just for her flawless skin, captivating eyes and shape that screams ‘hawt’ but also beauty that shines from inside that makes basically everything she touches turn to gold.

 She is a lover to a fault. When she loves you, she loves you and will do almost anything for you as long as it lies within her. 
But then, she is human and not perfect. She has a mind of her own and operates at a very high level of intelligence which is a good thing if you can flow with her and please do not be slow and dull 😁 

She has had her fair share of ups and downs. She has cried many times and had her heart broken mostly by the ‘Brutus” she trusted,  since she is a very open and trusting person. She has gone through pain and rejection. But like gold, she comes out refined 

She allows God help her heal and forgive,  not holding grudges and hurt but loving even more,  which gives her the peace she has today. 

Like the Phoenix, she rises. 

In the few years we were together, I have learned a lot; to love without holding back, to trust and hold God to his word without relenting, to give when there is genuine need, to be a lady and be strong, to have fun and still be Christian, to stand up for myself and what I believe even in the face of opposition,  to go for the best and not settle for less and to help as many as I can especially young ladies who are struggling with issues most people do not care about. 

Some people said I would not go far associating with you, see how far God has brought us and made me. 

God blessed you with a wonderful man, your “dioma”. The children have an amazing mother. 

To my sister, my friend, my cousin, my mother, my brother, my body guard 😁, my girlfriend, my fitness trainer, my support, and gist partner and my prayer partner Jane Uloma Mac Job-Ujah; I love you without wax https://www.quora.com/Whats-the-meaning-for-the-expression-I-love-you-without-wax

Happy married life 

Meet The Fashionista

My name is Chiedu Mary D. N. My friends and family call me either May or Edu 😀  

I am an engineer, a sucker for fashion (fashioista), I dance, I draw designs, create  stuff and more 😁 . 

The journey into the world of entrepreneurship has not being an easy one but I bless God.  I always wanted to be a model because of my love for clothes, and the joy in trying out different outfits to see the one that fits.

Who would guess that the trouser was a george wrapper before combined with a camisole and a blazer 😁 , with that I  am  all set for Monday. 

I also see fashion sometimes as a way of expressing my emotions like when am sad, happy, or feeling weird, rebellious etc 😜.  

I was bored and I had this idea, so I said to my self ‘why not try it?’ and guess what I did… What do you think of it?  follow me on IG @dim_phyna 

 I also love to help people pick out clothes for different occasions without looking ‘cliché’.The idea is to be comfortable, outstanding and stunning (COS). I believe that Fashion is not about dressing to impress anyone.  Even though  we always want to make a statement with our fashion, but most times are we comfortable?

My dream is to make impact, to inspire and create job opportunities for the young. 5 years from now, I want to be found doing what I love best.  
Things I do for fun? I enjoy cooking. It feels like I am in another world when I  am in the kitchen. I enjoy watching movies :D, I enjoy reading (novels, motivational books, journals etc), I love dancing, I don’t joke with my music too😍, I like to explore… (trying out new things, adventures). 

“Spaghetti with fish and turkey stew” Bon Appétit 😘😍  

 My mom motivates me a whole lot, she’s  got my back anytime, any day, she is my “ride or die chick”. I couldn’t have asked for a better  mom. 

My shout out goes to you Bee,  keep doing what you doing girl,  don’t quit and always believe in yourself. And also to you all out there supporting her by reading and making comments. Thanks a lot y’all 😍.

God keeps me going and this quote ” I can be a Choice, a Priority, a Reason but never an option”
Enjoy the rest of your week!  😍 😘
