”Getting Married To My Successful Husband Catapulted Me To Where I Am Today” – Shade Okoya


Shade Okoya was angelic on the cover of last week’s Vanguard Allure. The mom of four and Managing Director of Eleganza Industrial City spoke about managing the affairs of the Eleganza company, their new innovations and managing her family affairs.

On if she thought she would become an entrepreneur when growing up:

”I had, from early age in school, incubated the idea of doing business and I had big dreams to be a successful entrepreneur. However, knowing and getting married to my successful husband, who is a workaholic and has always achieved goals and objectives, catapulted me to where I am today.”

On her formula for managing being an entrepreneur, taking care of her children, being a doting wife and still being elegant and in control:

”My husband will always be the CEO of Eleganza groups and I am happy and thank God having the privilege of  been his deputy , the challenging side of being a mother is when I have to work late hours or having to go away on business trips. But, fortunately, I have my dear mother to assist me in teaching them the ways of God and maintaining discipline even when I am absent.”
