Tell us abit about yourself?
My names Jesse, my Geez call me OGB, some call me safe, I did my secondary school here in Nigeria, and I went abroad to further my studies. I'm the fourth child out of five children. Both my parents are into businesses of there own and so are my siblings. As a person I feel life is meant to be enjoyed so what I do during my spare time is to try my possible best to chill. And a simply principle I live by is DMTL which means "Do More, Talk Less", because all successful people in life, do more of working than talking.

My marketing strategy is one I'll call hustling.. I'll call it hustling because I'm always out there looking for someone to buy, someone to tell me how they see my designs and all that. Also, I bought every single one of my designs which I wear when ever I'm on the move, which also helps.
