Ipadeola Abiodun Oriyomi better known as Swag Omoluabi is a young Nigerian entrepreneur armed with vision, drive and dedication.
Swag Omoluabi who is a gifted brand influencer noted that his passion for business and adding value made him become an entrepreneur.
“I have always loved to add value to people and also derive pleasure in doing business. I have always had that knack for entrepreneurship even as a child. My mother advises me a lot. She once told me that self-reliance is the path way to wealth creation no matter how educated one is. So this has always been my driving force”.
Shedding light on how he derives his motivation, the fashionable businessman said: “My mother motivates me and I also derive motivation from my environment. I grew up in the Ghetto, our hustling mothers and fathers inspired me to become who I am today. These folks work hard and smart. I derive my fighting spirit from them. That environment also made me rugged”.
On the challenges of running a business in Nigeria, Ipadeola stated that funding has always been a major impediment.
“There are lot of challenges but the main challenge is capital. It wasn’t easy for me to get funding for my business. I saved the money from a company I worked with years back and re-invested it into my business”.
The graduate of Lagos State Polytechnic added that Wizkid inspires him a lot.
“I love Wizkid. He inspires me a lot. He is calm, humble and business oriented. He has put Nigeria on the world map and has continued to up his game. He came from a humble background and has turned his lemons into lemonades. Wizzy is a great inspiration to me and countless other young Nigerians who have been impacted by not just his music, but by also his business sense”.
