BEVERLY HILLS, November 20, (THEWILL) – The name Mudiaga Enajemo, the powerhouse behind ‘MUDI AFRICA’ is synonymous with fashion. He didn’t just seal the top spot by accident. He sealed it through sheer dint of hard work, resilience, doggedness and patience. He still holds the record as the first Fashion designer in Nigeria to have his billboard erected across Nigeria. He also has a street, ‘Mudi Lane’ named after him in Lagos.
When the Delta state born Fashion icon arrived Lagos in 1990, in search of greener pastures, little did he know that fashion was going to make heads sway for him. It took candid counsel from friends to make him take fashion and styling seriously. Apart from fashion and styling, Mudi loves antiquing. He loves collections of old and vintages materials. Take a trip to his Anthony Village Office, Lagos, an array of vintage collections of automobiles parked in his garage will catch your fancy.
