Gone are the days when Nigerians refused to patronise artisans who made their wares from locally sourced materials. These days, our fashion designers, shoemakers and other businessmen enjoy much more support.
Veteran actor Richard Mofe-Damijo reiterated this via his Instagram account as he wrote about his experience with some artisans who made him products he is now enjoying. He also explained why made in Nigeria products are simply the best.
See his full post below:
“Made in Nigeria never felt so good. In the strive for a better Nigeria I have had to look inwards to buying everything I need from clothes to accessories. For fashion, furniture and footwear I think it's safe to say we are almost there. Last year, the Mrs and I walked into this shop in Victoria Island, Lagos to buy a high back chair and was told 2.8m naira.
Wifey who wanted the chair more than I did was the first to head for the door. I called up a furniture maker in Benin that had built me a door a few years back and the result is this beautiful one I am sitting on and yea, it cost me way less than the one in the shop.
Not to mention the pretty sandals I am wearing by @amystunner another made in Nigeria product that compares with all that is out there. Respect to all those digging in to make us look better. Keep doing what you're doing and we will get there. #rmdsayso #madeinnigeria #proudnigerian.”
