Fast-rising Internet celebrity and fashion entrepreneur, Nwaubani Ebube Clinton, aka Billion$baby, claimed he is walking in the footsteps of iconic American showbiz and fashion moguls like Kanye and Jay Z.
He disclosed this while explaining the inspiration behind his BDB Lifestyle brand.
“BDB is an aspirational acronym coined to inspire the average youth that he can also live and lead advanced life just like every other idol out there such as Jay Z or Kanye West,” he said.
According to him: “With BDB, I am bringing the meaning of luxury a bit more closer to the average Nigerian, rather than being seen as something farfetched and less attainable.”
Speaking further about his experience as an entrepreneur, Billion$baby avowed that running a business in Nigeria is sometimes “quite difficult.”
Said he: “The country’s economic policies and entrepreneurial climate are sometimes quite frustrating. But with time you get to master the whims and caprices of Nigerian businesses and that will help you to thrive regardless.”
The BDB CEO, who is visible on Instagram as @billion_dollarbabyyy, is still looking forward to completing his bachelor degree in Mass Communication from Rivers State University. Nonetheless, he is not quitting entrepreneurship anytime soon, he hinted.
“Presently, I am working on enlarging our production lines to include more household products and sustainable lifestyle products that make life more smooth and satisfying,” he affirmed.
Billion$baby also gave an insight into his exotic brand name. “I’ve always loved to look good since I was younger, so you know how when you maintain a certain identity for a long time, and all of a sudden your peers coined for you a fancy name related to your disposition. That was how BDB started. Later, I decide to give it a greater purpose,” he explained.
