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.
