A six-figure empire in six years
The owner of Kayzplace Barbershop said he came to Lagos with the dream to become the number one luxury barber in Africa.
In six years, he was able to scale his business into an eight-figure empire. The barbershop has a game centre to entertain clients while they wait for their turns.
The place also has an executive lounge where VIP can sit when they do not want to use the game centre to unwind.
Kufre disclosed that his present success would have come earlier if he had anybody to support him financially. Kufre said he left home when he got tired of incessant complaints from his dad about his future.
I did this to solve my business challenge
According to him, he is the kind of person who always wants to succeed in whatever thing he sets his hands on. He revealed that with his barbering skill, he has been to places that even graduates would find difficult to access.
The celebrity barber disclosed he has given haircuts to different popular politicians. Sharing his challenges, he said that waiting time has made him lose so many customers and that was why he set up the indoor games.

Ladies can do the business too
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young Nigerian lady is breaking barriers in a male-dominated industry. Sharing beautiful photos of her handwork, she revealed she loves putting smiles on people's faces.
What amazed many was how @OgechiOkoye7 achieved perfect 'friction lines' on her client's heads. Her skill is too obvious to overlook.
The lady shared more photos of her clients in an earlier tweet made on Friday, May 28, revealing she is all about men's fashion.
