For me, the desire to make footwear started in 2005, after I got a pair of slippers from a neighbour of mine. Something about them drew me in, and piqued my interest. I was determined to learn how to replicate them. I went to a local market in Lagos, bought the materials I needed to make a pair of slippers, and recreated them. Thatâ€™s how my fire for it was ignited, and it hasnâ€™t stopped burning ever since.
