It has been a great few years for Blacknbold fashion house owing to the success of our annual fashion show, “ Ife runway fashion show” which would be totally impossible not for your participation and support. We would like to use this medium to appreciate all those that have believed in the Black n Bold dream from the beginning to where we are presently. Without you we would be all words and no action. Thank you.
This year, Black n Bold is introducing a new program and it is known as THE BLACK GOLD. The event is a talk show centered on promoting student entrepreneurship in Nigeria. It will be bringing together top African icons whom beyond reasonable doubt are successful at what they do. They will be discussing their journey, the challenges and their success story.
It will be an opportunity for students to learn, network and interact with these people and ask questions concerning their chosen field of career in other to help them in their own personal craft. This event is set to take place on the 19th April, 2013, Oduduwa hall, Obafemi Awolowo University.
The event is tagged the “black gold;theme: Our Journey from grass to grace” students who have an interest in special crafts aside from academics will have an opportunity to learn from the best. Questions bothering them and needing professional answers will be tackled by guest speakers and this will go a long way in reducing the mistakes of the young entrepreneur in his or her chosen craft. The list of guest speakers includes:
Mr. Adebayo Adegbe (CEO, MODELA COUTURE)
Mike Igbe (CEO Mic Dunamis concept and FOUNDER, NIGERIA MODEL AND ACHIEVERS AWARD)
Mrs. Joan Okorodudu ( CEO, ISIS MODELS AND ORGANIZER OF THE NIGERIA NEXT SUPER MODEL)
Mr Ayotunde Fabamwo (CEO House of twitch and organiser of Mr Ideal Nigeria
Mr Babatunde Afolabi( CEO Breeze360 Urban, an alumni of Great Ife and Top Lagos fashion designer)
This event is appropriately named because the speakers are literally the black gold who are well reckoned with within and outside Africa. The talk show is celebrating them as they come to share their breakthrough story while paving the way for the younger generation.
In our bid as a body that stands for the discovery, nurture and development of young entrepreneurs amongst student, we are opening the event free to all students across the federation. This will encourage mass participation from all over thereby sharing and fulfilling our dream of emancipation of the Nigerian student.
We would be updating you in our subsequent releases on the progress of the event. Until then, do keep a date with us for a mind blowing, spirit-lifting talk show than none before from Nigeria’s very best.
