Hajia Shareefah Abiola Andu on the Spotlight.

Hajia Andu First Lady @ Arabel and publisher @ Zephyr Magazine.

A devout Muslim in her 50s, she wanted to become a model and actress interestingly she became a role-model and seamstress. A designer of note.

Mrs. Andu  studied Sociology at UNILAG (University of Lagos); she bagged her second degree in Banking/Finance at UI (University of Ibadan) greatest Uites. She’s a proud alumnus of Lagos Business School (Pan-Atlantic University) where she received instructions in MBA.

She had worked in the bank,  media house, bank …. Hajia Andu had a stint in journalism and spent some years with the Nigerian Tribune Newspaper where she reportedly handled fashion and family pages.

Where you research family and major in matters around women and children, as well as fashion you’re receiving instructions on the field – beyond the classroom now.

She had firsthand access to fashion where she was exposed to fashion/style and the business of fashion. She delved into the world of fashion trying to advance her hobby and observed a huge vacuum – deficiency of Islamic stores in Nigeria.

Hey her smart and sensitive mind spurred her to fill the void hook, line and sinker and that birth Arabel Nig Ltd – foremost and biggest Islamic store in Nigeria.

Apart from Islamic materials, prayer mats, Ramadan hampers, Arabel is into bridals, and suits for grooms.

Hope you learn one or two things about Hajia Andu of Arabel.

Have a lovely weekend ahead!
