7 Young Self-made Nigerian Millionaires To Inspire You by AnthonyAk(m): 5:53pm On Sep 12, 2015

OLUWASEUN OSEWA
This young and enterprising young man is known for starting a platform that gives Nigerians an online voice. Before Facebook became popular in Nigeria, Nairaland was a thriving community of Nigerians. From politics to careers to diaspora connections no other platform has advanced the cause of a Nigerian online community like Nairaland.
It has also made a millionaire out of young Seun as deserving.

LINDA IKEJI
Ms. Ikeji recently wrote a blog post where she talked about her struggles staring up. She wanted to be self made from the beginning and even though it took a while, she has definitely made it. The Linda Ikeji blog is well known for engaging gossip and news that keeps the Nigerian amebo population on its toes. With top Nigerian organizations as advertisers, the blog has made a multi millionaire out of its owner. She recently purchased a Range Rover but one thing about this lady is that she has managed to stay humble and so helpful to others.

CHUDE JIDEONWO
Chude is passionate about giving a voice to his generation in the development of his nation. With his partner, Adebola Williams he started the Future Awards project to recognize young passionate Nigerians giving their best to their Fatherland. He is said to have been a major impact in the turn around of the Buhari campaigns machine in 2015.

UCHE PEDRO
Before she married one of Lagos‘s top elites, Uche Pedro was Uche Eze. She is the founder of Bella Naija, a must visit website for impending brides and their grooms. But that is not all Bella Naija is about. There is news, community and more to be enjoyed on the site as well. She has been named as one of Forbes 30 Young Nigerian Entrepreneurs.

KUNBI OYELESE
A well known designer in the Nigerian fashion industry, Kunbi has made her mark with her label April by Kunbi. She has gone ahead to design clothing for many Nigerian celebrities and she isn’t even 30 yet.

AYODEJI ADEWUNMI
This young man is responsible for the company now known as Jobberman. He and his two partners started this platform , the Nigerian version of Monster.com. Today they are on the board of the company that is now managed by an international investment company.

JASON NJOKU
This fiery young entrepreneur has a story like no other. He started Irokotv after his experience with people in the diaspora craving movies from home. He started from the scratch literally and had to struggle very hard to get to where he is today.
Irokotv is now a multi million dollar organization and has led Jason to begin Spark, a company that encourages Nigerian businesses by investing in them.
Young or old, male or female, hold onto your dreams. None of the people mentioned about are anything spectacular. They are human like you, they just never gave up on their dreams. So keep keeping on!

As far as I can see, no millionaire is self-made.
They are either made by God directly or he sent men to help them up. No one is an island and no one is self-sufficient to be self-made.

but in truth, seun's name on that list will deter it from making fp, I guess he's a kind of guy who wouldn't love to be noticed.

Do you have access to their bank statements? Have you valued their assets? The fact that the list is dominated by bloggers shows that it wasn't well researched. There are real young dollar millionaires doing their thing quietly and a list of them will interest us better.

My CEO should be on the list cheesy
Re: 7 Young Self-made Nigerian Millionaires To Inspire You by ebamma(m): 4:23pm On Sep 14, 2015
I can see now that the world we live in, only see you as inspiring and important when you are a millionaire,



Nobody sees the village teacher impacting knowledge or the doctor saving lives as inspiring enough,


Just because Linda Ikeji and Uche Pedro are making money from selling celebrity gossips doesn't make them inspiring to me
