I am super proud of how much Nigerian businesses are thriving despite all the challenges, especially small businesses. Owning and running a business is not a joke talk less of running one in the middle of a pandemic. I recently dropped a suggestion poll on my Instagram stories asking my online community to drop names of small businesses to support so I’ll make a blog post on it and I got some responses. This is my own way of supporting – visibility. So if you are looking for amazing brands that are doing well to patronize, check out these ones listed below in no particular order. I am super proud of them.
