From Nigeria to Texas Oil Wealth – Kase Lawal featured on CNN’s African Voices



Most of us first heard of Nigerian entrepreneur Kase Lawal when he was featured in Black Enterprise magazine in 2002. His company, Camac topped their prestigious list of America’s top 100 black-owned firms in 2002.
Its been a few years since that but Camac and Kase have kept up the pace. CNN African Voices interviews Mr. Lawal and delves into his trajectory, he shares the story of how he built his company and the non-profit activities that he is currently involved in, specifically promoting entrepreneurship among Nigerian youth. Definitely an interesting feature.

    @ Obi Ibeto – your comment is hilarious. Are you the Obi Ibeto of Dallas Rooftop Gardens? I admired your guts in taking over the whole high rise if only a little over ambitious. Sorry you had to close down. Back to Kase Lawal, I like the calm and calculated way he speaks. Clearly cool headed. Well done sir.

    PS: @Obi – If u are the same Obi Ibeto, I was not a big fan of your Hotel Capri idea. I hope you also find inspiration like us all looking at Kase Lawal and his contribution to the US economy and this what we should all aspire to be (sorry I didnt/dont quite see this in your hotel capri).

    LOL at the ‘Obi-inspired dialogue.

    I totally love the inspiration Kase Lawal brings to a lot of enterprising young folks. I actually got a job offer from them a short while ago. Great sturdy company!
