Ayomide is the CEO of the OAMA Empire. Born in New York, USA Ayomide is a former student of the Apostolic Faith Secondary School. After foundation year at the Oxbridge Tutorial College, Ayomide is currently studying Business Management at the University of Bradford, UK. Here is his story... In his own words
OAMA Beadz formerly known as the OAMA bead biz was created July 2011. It all started as an examination for JSCE (junior school certificate examination). A fine art practical JSCE in which my art work became second best in the whole of Lagos State. Afterwards bead making became a thing of leisure to me, well not until after I made my first sale on an art work. I was given a job to do the logo of Mutual Benefit Assurance Plc from which I earned a large amount from. From that moment on became the beginning of OAMA Beadz.
OAMA was coined from my initials, at first it sounded weird but later on everyone got used to it. My motivation however, has been a special someone and if not for her... I rest my case. Through OAMA Beadz I have been able to start a movement and establish a fast growing market for OAMA Beadz and other affiliate companies of the OAMA Empire. Through the audience OAMA Beadz attracted, I have been able to start my own football league here in the UK. I am presently working on my fashion line which will drop soon as well as my fashion show.
My parents were my major setback; I guess we all know Nigerian parents and their parentin skills... But I know they just want the best for me and they carry out their parenting duties just the way they know how to. My vision is to build an Empire of my own comprising of diverse fast-growing companies. And by the age of 25, I want to be the youngest billionaire in Africa, worst case scenario Nigeria. I want to achieve everything Dangote achieved but at a young age.
Finally I’m just going to drop a quote of mine “Success is the ability to live your life to the fullest, doing what you love doing and making the best of it. Ensure not to exclude God."
So I guess that was an amazing story. Honestly I have never seen bead art this good. Ayomide happens to be one of the very few free-spirited people I have known. Although it has been an on-phone affair via what's app, I can tell he is an amazing person. See more of his works here
