She told Kids Big News that before she decided to start her pomade brand, she had excellent reviews and remarks about her skin tone from friends.
''I started the shea butter business because everybody kept on saying I like your skin, it's so chocolaty and soft. So I told my mum can I start a shea butter [business],'' she told Kids Big News.
The hair extension brand for children, which she launched before the shea butter product, is intended to reflect her true age because she looked like an adult in most of her previous pictures.
She credited her mom for her success and hopes that kids from the diaspora would experience the native goodness Ghana has to offer.

But that didn't deter him from pursuing his goal to start a high-quality delivery and pickup system, which became known as LocQar.
At the time, it was just an idea inspired by the Amazon Locker and shot into reality following a tragedy that nearly claimed his life.
