Popular hair seller, Mizwanneka narrates story on our she started her journey as the Hair Boss. She narrated her experience on her Instagram handle, she wrote;
“This place tho , I’ll never forget my very first shop ever (festac town ) I was on the top floor. I had seen a finer shop before this one , got home , tried to convince hubby I needed a shop (to sell what exactly sef) he went to see it with me , talked with the owner and promised to pay them the next week . The day came and we went to pay with all excitement, the owner said he had given it out already , there’s no English I didn’t speak to convince him .
In my mind , this man wants to kill my shine. I was devastated and didn’t want to go without getting somewhere else that day ( since it was still morning ) there’s no street in festac I didn’t go to looking for a shop that’s within the amount we had .
Finally got this one , was like magic , the agent was right there and willing to seal the deal immediately if we wanted , we talked and quickly paid for this ,same day. there was an office table inside the shop , and the agent said the former occupants dashed him, so I begged him to sell it to me, imagine getting a shop and office table same day, that’s God at work. I went to the carpenter nearby , ordered for boards and few things to hang my hairs wen I get .hubby bought me tv and fan and painted the shop and girl I was the happiest person on earth that period.
I forgot to check the neighbourhood before renting , then rain came and everywhere was flooded these bike men won’t even let u enter ur shop in peace , bus drivers , bike men , hawkers , everyone indirectly had a shop in front the place smelled like sh*** and hubby use to dread coming there because of the smell .but me ? I didn’t care , I loved my shop with the smell and I’ll even carry Emily who was few months there, Untill her father said pls ,stop it.
