YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS:

MEET CEO ACQUINO MAKE OVERS

                                                                                         -Miss Halima Ibrahim

Most of us enjoy Hollywood movies and give lots of credit to various artists appearing in these movies.Good thing...BUT how about the back end office, those behind the scenes? Those that actually give these movies the kinda spice and effects that you see and are blown off your feet sometimes?.Dont they deserve the fame and fortune too.
With these thoughts running a 100meters race up and down my mind i set out to interview the Abuja based CEO of Acquino Make overs, a beauty outfit situated in the heart of Abuja, Nigeria, all in a bid to know how these "behind the scenes" magicians feel after labouring night and day and are not recognised like their actor/actress counterparts.
May be they enjoy Fortune and really dont care about the fame? Well let's find out.

Once asked this question, Charming miss Halima had this to say......Laughs!!!, Rivera, u guys have started again...More Laughs!!!....dont know what you are talking about. All i know is i work hard and get paid for working hard...Shikena. About the fame, she said" i dont have to be popular or fill every magazine cover to make money, do I? Well obviously not!.
Anyway we couldn't get much from Miss Halima, but atleast we saw some of her great works

  29. As I always say, Nollywoods future seems to me to be really bleak...not anymore, saw movies like "Things fall apart" and I see great work invested into that piece, Harry Potter and der likes...Now down to Nollywood...sometimes its a mixed feelin wen I watch some of these movies bt with this masterpiece dis young woman is putting up with,I see a future indeed...Good Work Halima..wuh u do is Art, consider urself as an Art Director. Be different, Stay Different and make comepetition irrelavant. Cheers Maam.
