Speaking to Legit, Olorunfemi opened up on how he started his online business.
“When I graduated from secondary school in 2019, I had a strong belief in the possibilities of earning online. But my obstacle was a phone. I couldn’t get a phone no matter what I tried and my parents were also not willing at this period,” he said.
“Later in 2021, my mum handed over her used and hanging phone to me and I started up with that online. July 2021, I borrowed money from a friend to start my own business. I bought earpods from China and sold them online to people.”
