Crown Natures Nigeria Limited, CNNL, an indigenous company producing different types of branded and unbranded head wears, has received the Company of the Year Award. The award was presented to the company last week by the Board of Directors of Nigeria Investment Newspaper in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
CNNL beat other indigenous companies to the coveted award in a poll conducting within and outside the country.
The Editor-in-Chief of Nigeria Investment Newspaper, Debo Balogun, who presented the award to Mrs. Busayo Gbaluwe, the Operations Manager of CNNL, confessed that it was not a surprise that Crown Natures recorded the highest votes to win the award, considering the exploits of the company as the first indigenous producer of quality head wears in Nigeria.
“Personally, I love the way they use indigenous fabrics to make different kinds of international quality caps. Besides, they have created employment opportunities for many Nigerian youths. So, the award is a reward for their hard work and innovation,” Balogun stated.
He added that the award is aimed at honouring and encouraging entrepreneurs in Nigeria. Speaking after receiving the award on behalf of CNNL, Mrs. Gbaluwe expressed the company’s joy for winning the award, promising that they will not relent on their oars in producing more quality head wears.

The head wears are produced in exotic African hand and machine print fabrics – Ankara, Tye & Dye (Adire), Kente, Aso oke and Batik as a lifestyle brand.
Mrs. Gbaluwe said the company aims to promote and showcase the rich African culture, while increasing the existing value chain of Cotton to garment/apparel as an accessory complimenting other fashionable accessories. “We have identified every Head as a potential Cap and Hat wearer.”
She added that: “Our ethnic exotic Caps and Hats seek to increase the confidence of Africans in African originated fabrics and also give identity in unity to Africans across the globe, while revealing the inexhaustible potentials in Africa by Africans to non Africans in the globe as the NEXT continent to watch out for.”
