So i have with me today a very, very handsome, tall, light skin bobo. Sitting with me today is the one and only CEO of DripTie’s. Oh and he also happens to be my friend.
1. Welcome my darling, can we get to know you?
Thank you for having me🙏🏻.
Princewill is an International Law Consultant, Fashionpreneur, Problem Solver and a passionate youth whose drive is towards
positive change and influence on society. In advocating for peace and being a better version of oneself, he influences his society mostly through social media and volunteering. He is one of the positive minded youths that anticipates the light at the end of the tunnel on the development of Africa, affirming that change can only be possible by creating innovations for empowerment and development as well as being solution oriented.
2. Ladies and gentlemen there you have it! i love me a man who knows his business. So Mr. Princewill Kindly enlighten us about your brand.
So I run an innovative company known as “Drip Innovations” and our first creation is DripTie which is an Exclusive Luxury Tie brand. We are being referred to as the “Tie Haven” and everyday our service keeps improving.
3. Starting out in Nigeria at such a vibrant age seems impossible sometimes, tell us how you did it.
It’s not really about age most times, you just have to equip yourself with the necessary skills you need, as a matter of fact, this is not the first business I’ve done. I’ve been doing this since I was 16 in High School and trust me there’s more to come.
4. Do you feel the Nigerian business industry needs changes? Or you are of the E go be mentality?
Well, it can be much better, it’s said that 7 out of 10 businesses in Nigeria will fail every five years, so definitely something is wrong and the government needs to put more effort in making an enabling environment.
5. Do you ever see yourself using your degree to get a formal job? Or nothing gets better than entrepreneurship?
I believe in my intellectual ability so much and I’d work in a place where I can give value and also learn more. I keep pushing both ways, there’s really no limit.
6. Tell us about a day in your business when you really couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
There will always be bad days, you just have to keep the same energy in which you started off. Going days without sales can hurt but if you’re building a “skyscraper brand”. You have to be patient and understand that these things take time.
7. So how much do you really think it takes to start up a business in Nigeria? (This is where you advice we the youngies 😁😁😁).
To be honest, you don’t need money to start a business in Nigeria. Starting small requires having the skill sets (like social media marketing, communication, ) and a mobile phone.
There’s really no excuse for anyone, if you really want to do it then you will. The problem is most of the time we want to make all the money in one day or aren’t patient enough to build a brand. I think from High school, kids should be taught how to run a business as business change lives.
Thank you very much Mr. Ohaji for doing this. I had a great time.
