    Am looking at this list, and I am thinking Nigeria still has a long way to go…
    How can you place the likes of Motaigne and Casabella with Alhaja Tejuosho in the same category .

    And also looking at the nominees per category, it just shows that while many are geared towards entrepreneurship, only a few really understand how to build a brand….too many fly by night brands or is it that Gen.mag is partial to not give these young brands consideration.

    So now i am asking what are the criteria used in making up the nominees list per category….

    I can barely see any of the young people in beauty on this list. At least you could acknowledge them with a young beauty entrepreneur of the year award. Are they expected to compete with the likes of Tara and Banke so early on?

    Plus the bias for lagos based business, since lagos is now Nigeria . Good luck

    to think that thatigbochick who suddenly disappeared for over a year now, just makes this list even more hilarious, biko where is oshewa beauty, Taos cosmetics, etc, the likes of ezinne, beautyrevng should be given a slot, these are big time beauty influencers, even iposhlooks and the work she’s currently doing on the beauty vendors list. like im no hater here but why not appreciate new brand likeTaos, nuban beauty, hegai and esther, sonia krashuk, elsas, these brands are trying and need to be recognized too. whoever put this list together, please do your research well or forget the awards. And plkease there are so many other beauty gurus and beauty influencers outside of Lagos, find them and promote them cause that’s what you guys should strive to do. gush sentimental much!!!!!!!!
