MONDAY MOTIVATION / MORIN.O / VACANCIES

 

Monday¬†is a hard day only for those, who perceive it negatively. Try to think positively and don’t let unhappiness and sadness be related to¬†Monday, share your enthusiasm, hope and good expectations with others and send inspirational,¬†motivational, positive or good morning¬†Monday¬†quotes, and wish a happy¬†Monday.

CLIENT SPOTLIGHT

Over time the term ‚ÄėMade in Nigeria‚ÄĚ has become the¬†most¬†used¬†word amongst Nigerian entrepreneurs, without many of them knowing fully what it really takes to solely build and own a manufacturing business. Owning a manufacturing business in Nigeria is no mean feat especially the Nigerian leather industry where attention to detail is key while putting the resources together and also trying to meet up to international standards.

The Nigerian leather industry has grown immensely over the years and industry giants like Morin Obaweya, the creative director of Morin.O should be applauded for that.

Morin Obaweya is a graduate of Pharmacy from Ahmadu Bello University, Kaduna State.

In 1992,¬†¬†She began her career as a curator and promoter of indigenous art and craft. She curated her first art exhibition in November 1994 at Didi Museum Lagos, titled ‚ÄúDivine Inspiration‚ÄĚ under the Distinguished Chairmanship of the then Minister of Information Prof Jerry Gana.¬†co-founded¬†Mauba¬†Enterprises with her Husband, a company involved in the supply of gift items and art d√©cor that had its office¬†in Accra Ghana where she met women from all over Africa who were in the handcraft business with their own designs. This inspired her to start her own line demonstrating her design skills. Choosing the medium of leather to express her design creativity, she went ahead to design her first bag collection which gave birth to the Morin.O Brand in 2013.

Mrs Obaweya founded Lifestrokes Gallery in 1995, committed to the promotion, enhancement and growth of Nigerian and African arts and crafts. The Company was located at 160 Awolowo Road. Ikoyi. Lagos. After several exhibitions, Mrs Obaweya was selected to attend in October 2010, the vital Voices in Collaboration with Exxon Mobil sponsored training for Women in Entrepreneurship and since the Inception of Lifestrokes, Mrs Obaweya has organized several exhibitions at home and abroad and to mark the inauguration of her exhibition featuring the works of over twenty Nigerian artists it was declared open by Professor Yusuf Grillo an Internationally renowned Nigerian Sculptor and Painter.

 

With the support of The Nigerian Export Promotion Council Morin.O has had four participations at the Magic fair in Las Vegas and was also featured in a Huffington Post article in 2015 and recently in the California Crusader News. Morin.O Showcased as an In-house designer at the Now Showroom in Los Angeles California and has held exhibitions in Nigeria, America and Europe.

Morin.O has its factory in Lagos and their product range include, Bags for men and women, laptop bags, travel accessories, belts, wallets, shoes, iPad covers and other small leather goods.

Photos from the #CHEFDISHFOODFEST

It was all FUN and GAMES at the #ChefDishFoodFest hosted by Samantha’s Bistro in partnership with YD Agency on the 16th and 17th of April 2017(Easter Sunday & Monday). Guests really made FOOD ART with their various colourful food-themed paintings.
 Kids had fun doing what they know how to do best and adults, not to be left out or outdone, rekindled,channeled into and connected with that inner childlike nature of theirs.

It was really a day to be remembered for all its FUN and FESTivities.
