2017 has been a good year for me, and also a year filled with challenges and trials. It’s with much pain that I announce the immediate lock down of my shop (DOPE WEARS) at Surulere. This is the second time in few months of being robbed and this last time really hit a blow at DOPE WEARS, goods worth millions of naira. 07-06-2017. The investigation is still on.

Words can’t express the pain DOPE WEARS is going through right now. PLEASE OUR STORE AT SURULERE HAS BEING LOCKED. BUT DOPE WEARS ONLINE

I started these business years back with my school fees,without help from no one but God,i kept pushin it,i didn’t sleep at nite for years, surfing the et for latest designers..I still suffer a lot of pains in my head till date,i keep pushing because I have to tak care of my family and I was in my lane and no single help from No one…

Now robbers came to burgle my store in surulere and cleared, my sweat, pains, nd sleepiness in vain…took me years to save and finally open a shop and robbers does this to me…they and thier family members won’t see 2018,only HEAR it!!! Thank u all LOVERS OF DOPEWEARS

As a child, I have always been business conscious and hardworking. Is it from hawking pepper, mangoes, or from gathering firewood for food sellers to get money, or establishing a phone call centre business back then, now nurturing dope wears with my school fees to the extent of success, just for some boys to rob my shop off millions of naira in one day.

Years of saving and hard work stolen, I want to kill myself, please what’s the quickest way to die, im thinking of swallowing all my sister’s asthmatic drugs, or jumping in front of a big trailer or drinking hypo, I cant take this anymore. Im more than depressed, more than sad, I need a quick death.
