 Mrs Thelma Obika CEO Lapeppo hairs.
I started my business in 2010, after finishing school in 2009 I worked for some time with mondo vivo limited as a marketing executive, but realised I wasn’t enjoying my job as much as I ought to so I quit, I have a diploma in marketing , BSC in economics and statistics, I am a lover of fashion and everything beautiful,  after I quit my job, I got introduced into the hair extension business by a big client of mine, Mrs toyin, she ordered A weave online and it took 2weeks to arrive, I was lucky to have visited her office that faithful day and she said to me, thelma why don’t u go into the business I and my friends will patronise u , as at then it wasn’t so popular and it was very expensive so I wondered how I was going to cope, I loved it and I was very much interested so I ordered a few from Europe with her help, I was excited when I got my first order. I sold them almost immediately, unfortunately I lost contact with Mrs toyin, so I had to source for new clients and I must tell u it wasn’t easy finding someone to buy a weave for that amount as at that time, I didn’t give up, I will get dressed in the morning one will think I was going to the office, lol I will take my samples and go to big salons on the island and ikeja, offices, make up studios, Banks, and made them an offer of a certain commission if they help me market to their clients and friends , most times no one wanted to buy, but I kept pushing because it was something I wanted to do, after about 2months I started getting calls from salons and banks to come around and show their clients and friends my samples, and that was how I started selling my products till now, within a year I had a lot of clients, I became very happy, I enjoyed every bit even thou it wasn’t all rosy and knew I wanted to remain in the business and make a name,

I also thought about the online marketing but I had challenges of people having to trust me with their cash online, lol, so I thought of getting a store, I worked towards the store project and it came to pass, by God’s grace I now have a second shop, I still do online deliveries but clients want to no your address before they can trust you with their cash! I faced a lot of challenges during this period and they all made me who I am today. If you ever find your self doing something that u don’t enjoy, kindly move, you never can tell where your passion will lead you to, it might not be easy at first but it will be worth it one day!
