By Kemi Mobuse - Friday, April 15, 2016

Glancing through  Instagram as usual, on the search for new and unique products to feature, something uniquely and refreshingly different caught my eyes; Sunglasses....made from Bamboo, yeah, you heard me right! those sleek and fashionable sunglasses are totally made from Bamboo.  I repeat "Bamboo" 😱, when I first saw it, I gave a skeptical face like "Bamboo biti bawo" 😒 (Bamboo, as how?)  I just couldn't resist the urge to bring it here and share with you guys!

I became curious as to getting full details of these unique and intellectual work of art, my curiosity pushed me to searching for the "Brain" behind this, and Alas!!! 💃💃I got him, my dear darlings meet Abari Abdul-Hamid Oluwadamilola.

Here is a young Nigerian -"Dammy", as he is fondly called, is a promising young entrepreneur also an engineer who is currently in the UK, pursuing Masters education. In addition to that, he produces and sells SUN-GLASSES MADE FROM BAMBOO/Wood which makes it health friendly, the Lens is UV protective and they are not too expensive 😊

He says more about himself:

“My name is Abari Abdulhamid Damilola, i was born on the 6th of March 1989 and i’m from Lagos State, Nigeria.

"I’m a graduate of Igbinedion University Okada with a major in Mechanical Engineering, Presently undergoing my Master’s degree in the University of Sheffield U.K in Process Safety and Loss Prevention."

Aspiration: Hope to build a factory for making bamboo products in Nigeria which I am already working on with my present manufacturer.
