A little bit about me and how I got here

I am a Nigerian girl, born and bred in Lagos. I am Igbo but I'm sure you can tell already from my surname. In 2010, I started making Ankara inspired t-shirts and accessories and the name of my business was ST Colours. One day, I woke up with a strong desire to share my knowledge of how to make Ankara accessories with others. I wanted to teach people how to make Ankara Accessories, so that they could become empowered. 


I held my first workshop in the garage of my parent's house. All my siblings and even my parents helped to set up the place. They cleaned the place, washed and arranged the chairs and tables, and re-parked the cars. Here is how it looked when they were done. 

Unfortunately, nobody attended my first workshop. After crying my eyes out, I decided to try again and this time, I started marketing my workshop online. To my amazement, people started reaching out to me from different parts of the world. I could not travel to all the cities I was getting requests from and I decided to launch my first online course.

To date, this course has been taken by people in over 9 countries including  Cameroon, Kenya, Australia, Zambia,  Canada, United Kingdom, United States of America, South Africa and also Nigeria.

I went on to launch more online courses and people started asking me to teach them how  to launch online courses. I designed a coaching program called "Course Launched Delivered" and today, hundreds of women have used my methodology to launch their own online courses and generate up to tens of millions in revenue.

Our community, CLD Tribe is the most supportive group of course creators all across Africa.


In 2018, I published an Amazon Best Selling Book, Knowledge is the New Gold, to show more people that they could turn their skills, knowledge and expertise into profitable online courses 

I also launched an online education platform, Trayny, which creates and manages online courses from Africa's most trusted leaders.


In 2019, I launched a tech platform, TrainQuarters which is a one-stop digital platform built to help African entrepreneurs from different sectors of the economy to monetize their knowledge. From creating, marketing and selling online courses to building a website, email list, blogpost hosting and more, the platform contains everything you need to launch an online course

I've been featured on so many platforms including Guardian Woman, etc
