According to Nikky Okeyere, his mother wanted him to be a Lawyer or a Doctor but he had dreams of being a barber. He decided to take the chance and headed to the UK where he built his brand and now cuts the hair of top English Premier League players like Crystal Palace‘s Wilfred Zaha and Bakary Sako.

BBC Africa ran a feature on him recently as well as a live stream of how he works and an interview with his A-list customers.

      These are countries that appreciate artisans/tradesmen. But what do you have in naija, the elites and society look down on them and complain of poor workmanship. If pay peanuts, you will get a monkeys shoddy job!

      That’s it exactly. Same way people take pride in driving transit buses here or doing Uber or farming. Back home, it’s a shameful thing! Seems the only art/skill recognized and appreciated in Naija is entertainment/stardom. God help our Nation.

    Inspiring. It is good to follow your dream even though it’s not easy but the truth is that you cannot live anyone else’s dream no matter how well intentioned they are.

    Nigerian mummies, it is time you broaden your thinking and move up with the times – Even Lawyers and Doctors abroad and quitting their jobs to open their own eateries..
