Many Nigerians are making names for themselves with their crafts despite the huge unemployment challenge in the country.
Some Nigerians have shown that a profession like barbing which many people believe to be petty can be a job that could really pay the bills.
In this report, Legit.ng will be looking at four Nigerians who took the barbing profession to a height many would have thought impossible.
1. Kufre Nnah
Kufre’s story inspired many months ago when he revealed in a YouTube interview with Steven Ndukwu that he started his business with N5000.

After working for someone in Lagos, he struck out and started his own. After many years of working hard, he has built an empire called Kayzplace Barbershop in Lekki.
He has flown private jets to give celebrities like Davido, Wizkid, and undisclosed top politician haircuts.
Adeyinka who is popularly known as Topzycut is a young man whose story heavily shows the need to put oneself out there and maximise the power of social media.
The young man who started out from Oyo soon moved to Lagos after photos of his works went viral online. People really sought his service.
Months after Legit.ng wrote about him, Adeyinka has had top Nigerian celebrities as his clients. Days ago, he worked on Burna Boy’s hair.
3. Ogechi Okoye
If you think only men are succeeding in the industry, you could be wrong. Ogechi showed off the beautiful friction lines she could give.
In 2020, the lady posted photos of her work on social media, and the reception was massive. Nigerians said they are proud of what she does.
4. Onu Okwuchukwu Charles
In 2020, Okechukwu amazed people as he made a leaf design on his client’s hair with a clipper. Many wondered how he did it.
The Nigerian barber who is based in Anambra state revealed that when he sees a person’s head, he already knows what style will befit them.
Another brilliant Nigerian
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian student of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO), Agazue Fidel Obumnaeme, wowed many with the gas cooker he made using materials he sourced locally.
He is a final year student from the department of soil science. Photos of his piece showed that the cooker also had baking and drying compartments.
Days after his work trended, the Imo state government visited his workshop as a sign of honour. The delegate was led by Honourable Eric Uwakwete.
