Forbes Discloses How Nigerian Reality Star, Khloe Started Her Business

Speaking during a conversation with Forbes, Khloe revealed how she started her business.

She mentioned that her business is primarily about making women feel comfortable in their own skin.

Speaking, the Nigerian reality star had this to say, “This is a business that started with two things.

“$150 and resilience!”

“I call myself the jack of all trades and muscle [to mean strength] of everything,” Oluwabusayo Victoria Abiri says to FORBES AFRICA.

“My business is all about making sure that all black women feel comfortable in their own skin.

Abiri’s energy came through in her bright dress at the FORBES AFRICA 30 Under 30 photo shoot in Johannesburg.

She went forward to say, “I started Koko By Khloe Beauty as a response to limited quality skincare products in Africa. Unfortunately, there [are too many] hazardous skincare products in the African market.

I wanted to go against the status quo and launch a cosmetics line that embraces different skin types and shades, providing them with well-trusted and patented products that nourish and promote healthy glowing skin.”
