Welcome to honournaija_blog, can we meet you?
I am Banwo Boluwatife, the CEO of Tifebells Fashionville. A graduate of Tai Solarin University of Education. I hail from Ogun state, though I reside in Ibadan City, Oyo state. I also own a data services providing brand(TemmyConnect).
What inspired you to start this amazing business?
My University life inspired me. I have always loved fashion, yet I couldn’t afford what I would love to wear. I remember wearing two pair of jeans for a whole session. It was that bad. So, it inspired me to begin my own brand where people can get what they love to wear and even smell nice at the most affordable prices. That’s why my Brand’s prices are really affordable.

I started since 2020 however, I had to rebrand in 2022 precisely, August.

Of course we’re in Nigeria, the hike in everything without our permission (lol). Also, getting people online to trust you due to the high rate of scams.
Honest words. Can you say your customers has derived maximum satisfaction thus far?
Yesssss, I go to any length in ensuring my customers gets the best. Though, no one is perfect, the brand ensures to satisfy the customers and their reviews says it all.
Lovely. Where do you see your business in the next 10years and what steps do you intend to take towards that vision?
