To some observers, it appears seasoned entrepreneur and fashion enthusiast, Kika Aderonke Osunde drips with controversies. For the British-born Nigerian CEO and co-owner of Good Hair Ltd —the international hair brand she co-founded more than a decade ago with her friend, Chioma Ikokwu in the United Kingdom to lead the luxury hair and lifestyle market— she seems to always find herself enmeshed in one public spat or the other. Just last year, she was pitted against a certain power couple leading to a monumental fiasco of a scandal that shook everywhere and raised a whole lot of dust.
This controversial incident was said to have forced Kika to run out of the country for fear of embarrassment and arrest by the billionaire couple. Since then, she has been shuttling between London and neighbouring Ghana. In fact, for a while now, Kika has been spending quality time in Ghana and hoping to do more for their beauty industry as she planned to open a magnificent beauty hub in the country’s capital, Accra —similar to what they have in Lagos.
In Lagos, Kika and Chioma own a one-stop beauty mall with a barber shop, makeup, lashes and hair – all under one roof. So while she was planning a replica beauty hub in Accra, Kika sparked another controversy on social media early this week as a video surfaced where she was being attacked and manhandled by a woman with a couple of her friends in tow. In the video that has since gone viral on social media, the Lagos big girl was seen screaming as the quite obviously angry lady pummelled her.
