Adewunmi Olowu is the assistant brand manager at Promasidor Nigeria. She answers our HOT questions below!
If you were the President for one day and you have the power to fix one thing in Nigeria, what will it be and WHY?
Infrastructure (I know that’s not one thing…lol) but I think that’s why we are here in the first place. The government needs to create an enabling environment for investors and budding entrepreneurs; this will definitely impact positively on the nation’s economy
What is the most annoying thing you have heard people say about women in Nigeria?
That our worth is confined to the kitchen or to the bed of a man. It’s disgusting!
What is the one most important thing about being a woman that you would want your daughter to know?
She is not a weak vessel like they say, she doesn’t need a man to validate her and she can go out there, live her life fully and be whatever she wants to be.
Do you believe in gender equality? Why or Why not?
I believe in gender equality, I just feel some women take it to the extreme or don’t pass the message across properly making those who follow them to act out inappropriately to their husbands or boyfriends. We should stand for our rights but careful to know the limits.
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year old, which would you choose?
Retain the mind of a 30-year-old; nothing beats fresh thinking even at 90.
Name three things you and your partner appear to have in common.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one special quality or ability, what would it be?
To know how to draw.
If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know? Why or why not?
I would like to know where I’d end up in my career pursuit.
Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Why?
Certificates, I think every other thing would be easier to replace than your credentials.
If you don’t have to worry about making money, what would you do all day?
Nice question…sleep, eat, go out to some place nice and watch a movie…
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? What happened that year?
I would go back to 2006 when I first fell in love
How do you think your friends would describe you?
Don’t keep a lot of them but I think- sometimes quiet, hardly opens up but really caring.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
Hmm…fame is good but I don’t think that’s the end game for me.
Is there something that you’ve dreamt of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?
Yes, there is, I just feel maybe I haven’t found all the reasons to convince myself to do it yet.
Would you be willing to have horrible nightmares for a year if you would be rewarded with extraordinary wealth for a lifetime? Why or Why not?
One year of nightmares, that’s a lot o but when I consider the later, count me in!
