Gowon’s Son Designs Cloths For A Living
NIGERIA NEWS has gathered that Musa Gowon, the son of former Head of state General Yakubu Gowon is presently thriving in the business of fashion designing.
According to the available Information, Gowon junior is being addressed by his friends as MJG Fashions Company.
The full meaning of MJG is Musa Jack Gowon, a name he has gotten used to right from his school days.
His speciality in the fashion business is the churning out of specially cut and embroidered African wears.
The son of the former head of state is said to have several factories in Enugu and two factories in Lagos.
The information also disclosed that he has several outlets in both Abuja and Lagos where he uses as the hub for his fashion design business.
Information revealed that Musa had on several occasions back in school display his love for artistic designs.
He, however, did not really pay attention to it until he got back to the country from the United States of America where he acquired more knowledge in the business.
Speaking with newsmen on his career recently, Musa said: “I had always had a fashion sense since I was a young lad living in Liberia in the early 70s.”
Musa disclosed that his love for fashion designing was derived from his late mother’s sense of styles.
In his words: “I presume I got this sense of style from my very elegant mother the late Mrs Edith Okongwu who was the PRO for Guinness Nigeria at a time.”
“I remember her getting angry at me once for saying I wanted to be like her because of her fashion sense and public admiration.”
“My sojourn in the US also exposed me to lots of styles and skills of clothes making. It was there that I decided that I would create my unique African style which is currently gaining popularity with many popular Nigerians including Charly Boy who did not blink to give us a try.”
“First, I started making for myself because the baggie things I returned from the US with couldn’t just fit. I went on to make for friends, then their friends also started placing orders even from as far away as the UK and US.”
“I get many orders from fans abroad and I am grateful to God for the acceptance as we are currently expanding from our first machines to more.”
He is optimistic that soon he would break grounds in the world of fashion designing especially with his new works he tagged “Wakanda creations”.
