    Very nice, and the concept is lovely also. Seeing Mr. Bamkole and some other guests, Ehime is likely to be an alumna of the Enterprise Development Centre (Pan-Atlantic University). God bless this business and cause it to flourish…wishing her the very best.

    is she going to make money just selling yogurt? when i look at the cost of doing business, including the rent in lekki, i hope she makes it though.

      @beautifulnblessed the alcohol is a form of celebration, allow Ehime regardleas of how u feel she has opened up another store. Be happy for her, why is there so much hate in ur comment? Make sure the next time u shower, you wash behind your ears because there’s alot of hate still there u may have missed. Champagne is for celebration but ur a typical Nigerians that drinks champagne to show off abi. Just appreciate her success. NIGERIANS HERE IS A MILLION $$$$$$$$$$$$$ WORD TO THE WISE, SPEND UR TIME APPRECIATING AND ASKING GOD TO BLESS.YOU TOO. TRUST ME, IF U SPEND YOUR TIME CONCENTRATING ON YOUR STUFF THAN PLAYAHATING ON OTHERS U MIGHT BE SUCCESSFUL…………EHIME CONGRATS

      Learn to celebrate people and celebrate with them too so when your time comes,people can celebrate you and with you too. You think it is easy? I am so tired of people that have created nothing,trying to hate on those that have.It is an achievement whether you think so or not.

    Lovely Decor! Excellent location! Professional staff! Watered down frozen yoghurt. Disappointed! I might go to sit but buy…waste of money

    • Froyolover

      March 30, 2014 at 6:27 pm

      Haters in Nigeria are plenty. Sweet kiwi has the best froyo which also meets world standards. I have had some of the best Pinkberry included and Sweet kiwi has the same taste. Real Customers know the value of what they are getting however fakers who wish they had their own froyo shop come on here and pretend like they are customers. It’s only yours that’s watered down by hatred! Abeg jor learn to appreciate peoples hard work, let’s see if you can do better.

      Please put a cork in it! I visited there last weekend and its the worst yoghurt I’ve tasted! VERY watered down. Couldn’t tell the difference between it and fan yogo! Not everything is hating please.

  23. Lovely.

    @intheoverseas sit down! What exactly do you know about yogurt or what it shld taste like? If you expect it to be thick like ice cream go and buy ice cream. You ain’t nothing but a 2 bit hater, show us the certificate making you a froyo critic. All these no good jealous hating h*es, they can’t do any better but they can talk s*it.
