Your brand in three words… Creative, Unique, Classy
The Part of My Job I Enjoy The Most… Thinking out of the box. When clients let me incorporate my style instead of having to copy someone else’s style. (I hate ‘copy copy‘. lol)
My Biggest Accomplishment To Date… Well, there’s been a lot of accomplishment but I believe the biggest is yet to come.
The Best Vendor I’ve Worked With… Lydda Cakes & Hats. She’s talented.
One Quality Every Nigerian Wedding Vendor Must Have and Why? Patience. The best clients are won over through patience and no vendor can go far in life without patience.
In My Spare Time, I lay on my bed and think of new styles, designs, ideas and strategies. I also read novels and watch Indian movies.
Interesting Fact About Me… I make hats, fascinators and other things but I don’t have any myself.

Call or Text… Both. If I text and I don’t get reply, I call.
Cook or Be Cooked For? Cook. I’m very choosy when it comes to food. I love to try new recipes and even create for myself.
Favorite Food… Yam and Fried Eggs with Supporters.
Ideal Holiday Destination… Ghana, China/ Korea, India (I’d love to ride on Elephants)
