5-year-old Nigerian Girl Becomes Youngest CEO Of Hair Accessories Brands In US

BEAUTY MAVEN, COURTNEY ADELEYE’S 5-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER BECOMES YOUNGEST CEO TO HAVE ACCESSORIES ON THE SHELVES AT TARGET

Beauty Maven, Courtney Adeleye’s 5-Year-Old Daughter Becomes Youngest CEO to have Accessories on the Shelves at Target

Courtney Adeleye, founder and CEO of The Mane Choice has been dominating the haircare industry for years. And now, she is teaching her 5-year-old daughter, Lily Adeleye the ropes. If you know anything about the beauty maven, you know that she is passionate about educating black women on entrepreneurship, encouraging women to be their own boss; and empowering others to take control of their financial futures.

On any given day, Adeleye can be found helping others through financial hardships and dropping gems on lessons that she has learned in business. Her products are on the shelves in hundreds of Target stores and Lily’s Lily Frilly hair bows can now be found not too far from hers.

We caught up with Courtney and Lily about this exciting new mommy-and-me entrepreneurial endeavor, and Courtney says that she saw this coming before it came to fruition.

“From the time Lily was 3, I knew then she had a business mindset. At an early age, as she watched me build a successful business from the ground up, it exposed her to many possibilities and goals, so with that, we didn’t wait until she was an adult to help her pursue them.”

Lily Frilly offers hair bows, backpacks, lunch boxes, and events for girls—or as Lily likes to call them—little bawses in training (Lil BITs)!

And if you ask Lily, she’ll tell you she is the boss. “I own my own company. I don’t just like it, I love it,” exclaims Lilly. In fact, she is the youngest CEO ever to retail at the superstore.

For Adeleye, this accomplishment is one near to her heart as a mother and a businesswoman. “Being the first Mother/Daughter duo to hit shelves in one of the largest retail stores in the world is still surreal to us. It’s history. It’s life-changing and it should definitely be celebrated,” says Adeleye.

I believe the position is a honorary one though since the child will definitely not be sitting at board meetings or whatsoever.

If not, I'll advise the mother to let children be children. 5-year-olds want to play and do other fun things, not be CEOs.

It's not possible.

A minor cannot enter into contracts, or sign contracts at all...which is what CEO's do.

as minors (especially those under the age of 12) in most developed nations cannot sign contracts or hold employment. When a parent dies, leaving control of major assets to their child or children, a Trust or Conservatorship is created to manage the assets and look after the best interests of the child.

The mother IS the real CEO most likely. The only way the child can take over the business is if the mother dies, (God forbid), and in that case, a trust or conservatorship would be established to run the business on her behalf (ie...a group of responsible adults).

This is true for the US where the child lives.
