For others, the pandemic has constrained their lives from getting whatever goal they set for themselves. But however, the reality is different for Saliman Sadick whose self-discovery is a big credit to the covid-19 pandemic.
He said “thanks to the pandemic”. Salimam Sadick (Known by many as Mario Breezy), who according to him is both a Ghanaian and a Nigerian who hails from Ogbomosho in Oyo State, Started his Tie and Dye business with the brand name ‘ T and D THRIFT SHOP’ on the 24th of June 2020.
As an entrepreneur and innovative person, Sadick thought of blending the whole Tie and Dye concept together with thrift styles. Tie and Dye has existed for a very long time, but hardly will you see them with designs, “This makes a difference right? YEAH” He said what lured him into the business is the trend, he said.” If you look at the music vidoe af most celebrities today and even what they wear around, there are so many Tie and Dye inside. So, let say Tie and Dye is something of old ages that our grandfathers used but now we are using innovation to bring it back. I came to the realization that, now, a lot of people are wearing Tie and Dye and really getting interested in it. So, I said to myself, why dont I start this business? I gave it a try and it Worked out.
When ask about his hope for his brand in five years time, He said: “I wasn’t in school actually when I started this because of the pandemic. I am still home now, but I think when school reopens I will be able to get things out. In His words, he Hope’s to see his brand bigger than it is currently. If we continue producing stuffs like these and then putting more ideas and techniques, I am sure this will go a very long way for me. And yes people are really getting interested in Tie and Dye, I will say it’s brand thant will keep on going.
