Speaking to the on the need to be creative and hard-working as a fashionpreneur, he said he was once stucked at Abu Dhabi, Dubai at 2am due to lack of Cash at hand. But what led to him been able to overcome that situation was because he had his fabrics which were his work and he was able to sell over $500 overnight and eventually, he was able to cater for himself and when able to afford to Lodge in a five- star hotel. 

He further admonished Fashionpreneurs on the need to be original in everything you do and the best way to show people who called youth lazy is to show them what we have. And to make fashion grow, it must come from the heart, place value on what you do by creating your own style of fashion. He need no one can initiate his style and any attempt of someone doing that will result to the person selling his brand unknowingly because it is his passion and when everyone in life should go, the passion will be there. 

Consequently, he said the best way to sell yourself to the word is to paint it on people's face as Fashion is not a convenient business, it takes hard work and Fashionpreneurs shouldn't stop creating until they get there niche, work on there ability as that's how to sustain the Fashion business.
