Blogger, Tosin Ajibade more popularly known by her blog name, Olorisupergal tells of how she was able to grow her business from using cyber cafes to one that now employs dozens of young Nigerians; the challenges of the early days while also sharing insight on Nigeria’s social media space.
Tosin who ventured out on her own to become a media entrepreneur when it wasn’t yet a popular career choice said she did so because of a burning desire to always be in the know and a passion for sharing that information with people. It is on this basis that she became one of the most recognised new media brands in Nigeria today.
Despite growing up in a strict home, Tosin Ajibade knew what she wanted and pushed for it. Of course, her passion for blogging and social media came at a later date. She had spent the early part of her entrepreneurial years trying out other business ideas like sales of foolscap sheets to her coursemates, sales of Adire, bead making, and selling of indomie noodles amongst others.
Some of her challenges included spending whole days at the cyber cafe as she didn’t start with a laptop. She only had a Nokia phone to follow up at night.
‘From Social Media Misfit to Social Media Hero’ isn’t just a motivational book, or a how-to guide on mastering social media, or a detailed book on how to make money on the internet; it is the memoir of a person who has been able to achieve all the above through determination and passion.
