My first test of responsibility came rather early. I grew up squatting from house to house with different families just to survive.

My parents separated when i was very young. When i was 6 years old, my mom took my brother and i to my Dad’s friend’s house, left us there and never came back. while my Dad was faraway in Germany, my Mom went to PortHarcourt leaving me to fend for myself and my brother at a very tender age. 

I never in a billion years thought i would be a make-up artiste when i was growing up, infact, i wanted to be a footballer; but i tell people, the ability to exploit an opportunity is the difference between the successful ones and the failures in life.

I remember being broke in the University and my friend said to me ‘look chap, i know you are good with arts, why not take a free training in makeup’ i thought he was mad initially, but somehow, i took it and got employed by my first company MUD.

The problem with most of our youths is that we are in a hurry. I remember my big break came after 3 years of waiting. Even as an employee of one of the biggest makeup companies in Nigeria, i still knew that i couldn’t be relaxed. i left MUD in 2016 to start my own brand. it was really tough, but growing up with little or no support from my parents or any family member whatsoever, i was tougher; and after 2 years i was able to stand on my own.I knew make up artists without a brand worked twice as hard to get clients, i was scared at first to be honest; but then i knew that no-one was coming to help me and so i took that leap.

Most people do not understand how a guy could be a make up artist. they expect to see a woman but then-boom! i appear. Being one of the few male make up artists around, i make enough money. However, i have to deal with girls seducing, gay attraction, relationships fluctuation and irresponsible upcoming models. It takes just a split second to lose focus and eventually lose it all.

I really love my job. It is art and it puts smiles on a lot of peoples faces so i don’t care if people laugh at me at my back; as far as i enjoy myself and it pays the bills- then I’m cool.

AZEEZ’ WORK

I would love to own my own make up brand someday. I hope the economy improves and the government establishes policies to aid entrepreneurs and indigenous innovations.

People ask me who i would be voting for in the 2019 elections, Buhari or Atiku? i tell them none. none of them is the answer.

I really hope Nigeria gets better.
