So,  we thought, its time we go look for our entrepreneurs who are into the fashion business. KMB came across Mr Alao, and we sat down with him to know why he went into the business. Read his interview below:

Kemi Mobuse blog: Can we meet you?

Entourage Empire: Yes ma,I am Alao abdulrauf olamilekan, President and founder of Entourage Empire

Kemi Mobuse blog: What does Entourage Empire do?
Entourage Empire: Entourage deal in production of quality apparel and accessories
Kemi Mobuse blog: Nice choice of name. What inspired the name and the business?
Entourage Empire: Thanks. Well the business as always been in the family
Kemi Mobuse blog: And you went into it because it was? Or because you love it?
Entourage Empire: My mum was a clothe Merchant. She used to own a store at gbagi in ibadan.

Entourage Empire: I went into it for my love and passion for fashion.
And for the name I believe if Buhari/someone of high caliber should move around town without any escort or entourage then you see him/her as ordinary.
But once d escort/entourage is with him/her then he/she becomes a VVIP
So I thought without proper/classy apparel and accessories man is just an ordinary person in clothing, But the moment, one steps into the proper apparel and accessories u become a classy person.
And there is this saying "the way you dress is the way you will be addressed"
