Man who didn't have shoes to wear, starts own sneaker company

- Lekau Sehoana grew up in poverty and often didn't have shoes to wear

- Today, he's the founder of Drip Footwear and unveiled his new Midrand office

- The company has hired 12 employees and social media users reacted to the wonderful news

It may be a slight exaggeration to say that Lekau Sehoana went from rags to riches within a few years.

The young entrepreneur still has a long way to go, but he has already come a long way.

While in high school, Sehoana lived in poverty and often had no shoes to wear.

Back then, getting a meal was the primary objective and receiving a pair of shoes more of an afterthought.

Legit.ng gathers that through the struggles, so his passion for sneakers was born.

In fact, Tembisan reported that his journey was inspired by his desperation to modify a tattered pair of Adidas sneakers to make them wearable. This was as a result of his school having a casual day in 2003 and the sneakers became a big hit.

In 2019, the young entrepreneur launched Drip Footwear, his own sneaker label.

Sehoana took to Twitter to share the exciting news of his new Midrand office.

He also revealed that his store will be hiring 12 employees and Legit.ng shares some of the positive reactions.

Mr_Moremi (@MO__Modise) said,

"Congratulations continue dripping in success."

Twitter user @XPEEZY (@ObertXP) added,

"I wore yellow drip to a staff function, it was the talk of the day. Everyone kept asking me about the label that's when I realised am dripping for real."

Beekeeper (@JustIma40441807) responded,

"Fantastic! Well done. Keep growing and shining."

"Black excellence. Love to see it."

In other news, the lawmaker representing Nnewi North constituency in Anambra state, Nonso Smart Okafor, has built a house for three childless widows who were living in a dilapidated mud house.

The lawmaker said he learnt about the ageing widows' terrible living condition earlier this year, adding that they suffered severe cold whenever it rained.

The widows, who were married to the same man, were given hope of comfort when Honourable Okafor visited them in the dilapidated mud house.

The lawmaker promised to change their situation and fulfilled the promise.
