So what information do you possess that people need?

4. HAIR EXTENSIONS
They say ‘never get in between a woman and her hair’. This list would be incomplete without hair extensions. Nigerian ladies love them and are prepared to spend a lot of money on them. Hair extensions and synthetic hair come in different styles and quality ranging from Peruvian hair to Brazilian hair, etc. Ladies love to look good and fashionable resulting in a high demand of hair extensions.
5. SHOES AND CLOTHING
Still on fashion, clothes and shoes are hot commodities in Nigeria. There are different clothes and shoes for men, women and children. Also different occasions will require different outfit. Most people in Nigeria have more than one pair of shoes and many changes of cloths. As the trend in fashion continues to evolve, cloths and shoes will continually be in high demand.
6. COOKING GAS
Cooking gas has become very popular in most Nigerian homes. It is considered more economical as compared to kerosene, coupled with the bad electricity supply in the country; people look for relatively cheaper and faster way of preparing their meals. Another advantage of using cooking gas is that the flames produce no smoke, therefore keeping cooking utensils clean and free from sooth stains commonly associated with using kerosene stove. Plus it is clean energy so the environment loves it.
7. Floor Tiles
Floor tiles are the current trend in most Nigerian houses. They are durable, more presentable and come in different styles and design. They are preferred to conventional cement floors. Most houses have upgraded their cement floors to tiled floors, even carpeting of floors have become old-fashioned. The demand of tiled floors in Nigeria is on a constant increase as new houses and government offices will rather opt for them.
Water is probably the most consumed commodity in Nigeria. It should have been first or second on this list but I never said the list was in any particular order 🙂
People need clean, fresh water for many things. A lot of people have made enormous wealth simply by providing people this very basic life necessity. You can still get in on the action.
Many items classify as food and they are all very important for survival so I won’t dwell so much on this. Food is always good business whether in its raw, cooked or processed state.
