Papa-Omisore-BellaNaija-September-2015Papa Omisore is one of those people we see well dressed on the red carpet and wonder, who is this dude?
He started out as a stylist and is now a designer and CEO of POC.

In this insightful interview with PulseTV, Papa tells his story including the fact that he grew up without his father present. He goes on to explain that people assume he grew up rich but he had humble beginnings. He also talks about his fashion label and more.

      LOL He said Leeds

      Leeds University in UK

      If you listen to the video, he states he used to travel and buy stuff and then bring them back to naija to sell.

      He also said when he moved back, it was really hard to buy (to sell) guys clothing in Nigeria

    If you’ve got posh beginnings you can’t hide it.
    If you’ve got ratchet beginnings, ain’t nothing you can do about that either. No matter how razz you try to be, as a person with pedigree, people will always treat you for who you honestly are. You will always be true to your roots.
