Favour Omokafe, a seasoned entrepreneur of over a decade has come a long way from his days as a self-taught designer to holding three executive managerial positions in companies across Africa and Asia. His entrepreneurial journey started in 2011 with visual and graphic designs. A year into learning, he got his first gig working on SolidStar’s album and promotional art. The project opened doors for him; soon he was working for industry A-listers like Flavour, Faze, Patoranking, Dj Spinall, Matthew Ohio, Sound Sultan, Vector, Sean Tizzle, Iyanya, Visafone and the Mavin Records, where he won many awards and recognitions for his works.
The 33-year-old is the founder of Get Branded Media, a branding and packaging company founded in 2014 in Nigeria and has since expanded its services to Istanbul, Turkey. He currently runs New Era Promotions––an event and promotional company established in Turkey in 2019 with co-founders Adeduro Babatunde and Titilope Ishola.
He is also the founder and creative director of 555 Opulence, a fashion line that he operates with Nompumelelo Kumalo, a marketing executive from South Africa and Abdoul Ishimwe, a branding expert from Rwanda. The streetwear line, which now has roots in North Cyprus and Nigeria, was also a success amongst the black communities in Turkey when launched in 2021, and various international influencers have been spotted donning the apparel home and aboard.
Favour has various projects yet to be launched. The first for the year was Terrene; an eco-friendly tracksuit collection under the 555 Opulence apparel company released on 12 April 2022 to celebrate and commemorate world earth day. Some proceeds from the collection will go towards community development projects in various communities on environmental protection.
