They say “with every wrinkle is a story, a lesson, or a step in wisdom and realization.” The truest sense in this is personified in the journey of one of Nigeria’s youngest business mogul, Okafor Chinedu Emmanuel, also known as VGH BOSS. He is the chairman of VGH Group and managing director of VGH Industrial Production, VGH Homes Limited and VGH Music.
Over the years, VGH BOSS has established himself as an incurable risk taker who has transformed the landscape of every sector he has extended his entrepreneurial grasp. Hugely experienced in the Nigerian business environment, in which he is also a major stakeholder in the manufacturing and entertainment industry as the CEO of VGH Music.
Where others competitors have severely crumbled, the VGH boss has exceptionally succeeded with far-reaching transformational ideas and initiatives. The VGH Industrial Production is the bow of the recycling industry in the country. Many competitors failed to succeed in the sector, owing to the absence or insufficient policies by the government, as well as the enabling environment to thrive. But magically, the astute serial entrepreneur has rather been a source of inspiration to others in the market.
The VGH Industrial Production is most popular for nylon and plastic productions in the nation, with its visioner utilizing the mass indiscriminate deposit of plastic dumps, recycling them and transforming them into usable items once again, boosting and driving the economy, creating employment, saving the country from capital flight and above all, preserving and salvaging what is remaining of an already endangered environment.
Okafor Chinedu Emmanuel’s vision for the sector in Nigeria is to be a powerhouse in the continent. In his capacity as a key player, he has challenged the government to provide incentives such as tax holiday, subsidies and infrastructure, as a conveyor belt to bringing more players into the recycling enterprise.
The entertainment arm of the VGH Group; VGH Music, has provided the springboard to several rising music stars in the country to reach the world with their talent, such as Crayon and Somto. Adorable Nollywood actress,
Jennifer Eliogu, also launched her music career through the record label. The three signees serenaded the guests last year in Anambra at the VGH boss’ wedding to his soulmate and founder of Venora Hair; one of the biggest hair brands in Nigeria.
VGH boss has made immense contribution to bridging the alarming housing deficit and low quality accommodation in the country. The company is motivated by its quest to be the leading real estate solution company of choice in the country, with unmatched focus on customer satisfaction and onboarding innovation and technology in service delivery.
Revealing what appears to have worked for him since his foray into manufacturing, real estate and entertainment, the VGH boss wrote on social media: ” To remain successful, you must avoid hubris and complacency. Keep thinking and be open to learning.”
