He said he started with wig-making before expanding into shoes and clothes.
The young man told Legit.ng:
"During SAED, I learnt how to make shoes and wig. After NYSC, I started with wigs but after my first set of clients, I knew I can’t continue with just female crafts. The pressure was much. So I made my first shoe, the client loved it and I knew this was it. And I started making more shoes and slippers. I employed more staff because we were having many orders. Then we started making clothes also."
When he was asked what challenges he has faced in growing his business, Babatunde said lack of electricity and drop in sales are the major issues. He said:
"Growing the business has not been easy but thank God we’re here. Major challenge is staffing. But currently the major challenge we are facing is light, because of the current situation of the country. Also all our major clients are relocating, so sales as dropped."
