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.
