Can we meet you?    

 My name is Obaro okeoghene, born on the 8th of july 1988 to Christian parents of Bayelsa and Delta origin in the city of port Harcourt. I had my nursery, primary and secondary education in port Harcourt and Bayelsa. I'm a graduate of Geology and mining technology from Delta state university Abraka. I am a writer, blogger, milliner, photostylist and a content creator.

How did you start Bellz_kraft?       

 The brand Bellz_kraft was officially birthed in 2018. But I have been a milliner for 14 years now. As a little girl waiting to go into the university, my mother thought it was wise for me to get a skill, so she made me go for millinery classes. It was a free skill acquisition training for women and girls of the state, by the then wife of the state government, Dame Patience Jonathan. After the training I continued millinery even while in the university and even trainer some more girls there, though on a low scale. After school, the jobs weren't forthcoming so I decided to turn the side hustle into the main hustle. I went to brush up my skills with a master class with renowned Nigerian milliner Urez kulture and immediately birthed Bellz_kraft. Crafting is a passion I have, I am at peace when I'm on my craft table, nothing else matters except for the magic I'm trying to make with my hands. So passion and satisfaction at the finished work has kept me going.

Interesting, so how long has your outfit been in existence?
 Bellz_kraft has officially been in existence a little over a year now.

Where do you see yourself five years from now with Bellz_Kraft?                           

In 5years, Bellz_kraft will become a house hold name even amongst the rich in the society and beyond. We will be the premium brand for classy and elegant hair pieces for the woman of style. The bellz_kraft academy will be constantly training and churning out seasoned milliners in their numbers, thereby creating empowerment opportunities for young people. 

Away from the excellent work at Bellz_Kraft what other activities do you get up to?           

I'm a writer, blogger, a photostylist. I also find the time to volunteer for a lot of socially impactful events like spelling Bee Bayelsa, Resourceful woman conference, the gathering etc.

Where is your millinery outfit located?

Any new projects to watch out for?         

Of course, more and more beautifully crafted hair pieces as we intend to fascinate the world, one head at a time.           

Thanks for your time.
