CEO and Founder
As the CEO of LIZKELA, I bring a unique blend of technical skills and creative vision to the fashion industry. Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, I was driven to pursue an advanced education, eventually graduating with a degree in Biotechnology and a Master's in Immunology. Although I initially set out to become a scientist, my journey led me to software engineering and entrepreneurship.
It was during my senior year of college that I discovered my true passion: fashion. My background in broadcast and show business, combined with my love of fashion, has resulted in my unexpected return to the beauty and fashion industry. At LIZKELA, I bring my diverse experiences and skills to create a brand that celebrates individuality, African heritage, and quality. I am excited to lead the charge in revolutionizing African-inspired fashion.
As the founder of LIZKELA, my vision for the brand is to create high-quality fashion that pushes the boundaries of traditional African design. We strive to break away from the conventional norms of African fashion and create contemporary designs that inspire and captivate. Our ultimate goal is to expand beyond women's wear and into menswear and couture fashion, offering a more comprehensive range of products for all our customers. At LIZKELA, we are committed to providing a top-notch customer experience and delivering products that exceed expectations.
Co-founder & CTO
As the co-founder of LIZKELA, I bring a wealth of technical expertise to the fashion industry. With over 16 years of experience in Full Stack Web and Mobile Application development, I have honed my skills in implementing cutting-edge technologies, including 12-factor Event-Driven CQRS Microservices, REST APIs, and front-end websites. My background in building enterprise-level SaaS platforms using cloud technology allows LIZKELA to remain at the forefront of innovation.
In addition to my technical prowess, I deeply understand the fashion industry, having worked at MKORs for several years. My unique eye for design and my sister's creative vision allows us to bring a truly unique brand to life. I am honored to partner with my sister, the CEO, in bringing her dream of revolutionizing African-inspired fashion to reality.
As a co-founder of LIZKELA, I have been inspired by my sister's creative vision to bridge the rich cultural heritage of African traditions with modern design. At LIZKELA, we believe in the power of storytelling through our art and product design. Our goal is to bring the beauty and artistry of African-inspired fashion to a global audience and create a brand that represents the best of both worlds: the rich cultural history of our heritage and the innovative, modern perspective of today's fashion industry.
