My Nigeria-Deola Sagoe: Top Drawer
Nigerian fashion has broken out, gracing the catwalks of New York, Johannesburg and Monaco. Deola Sagoe was one of the designers who led this Nigerian fashion expansion. The House of Deola Sagoe is on Lagos’ Victoria Island and caters for Nigeria’s who’s who. Deola’s father, prominent Nigerian businessman, Chief Ade Ojo, never wanted his daughter to go into fashion. He actively discouraged her, wanting her to take over his lucrative business.
