Modupe-Oreoluwa Oyeyemi Ola, better known as Mo’Cheddah, a talented rapper and singer has spoken on the challenges of being a woman as well as an entrepreneur in Nigeria.
According to her, she cries a lot and she spends 40% of her time on the telephone giving instructions to members of staff and business partners.
The 28-year old dropped the note on her Instagram page with the lengthy note below:
“This is me —
After a goooood cry , I had to wipe my tears , drink tea , get on the phone and get work done .
40% of my time is spent on the phone talking , I do not wish it so but it is , I’m either talking to staff , a supplier or trying to get logistic companies to “do their job “on time because customers need their orders .. .
Another 40% is spent on the field , in the sun buying materials I would need or on an okada trying to meet up with a delivery, ( I’ll post the picture soon )
The last 20% is what I have left for myself , family and other businesses I run … .
It is HARD , I cry , I cry a lot .. .
that’s the only way you can survive as a Nigerian business owner … .
Do not let my Instagram slay pictures deceive you , being an ADULT is HARD work, being an entrepreneur is even HARDER .. .
If you must chop you must work
On the brighter side God rewards hard work … so you will always reap what you have sewn .. I’m writing this to let someone out there know it’s hard for me
too … but we will survive .. PS- try drinking green tea – it makes it easier “
She released her debut studio album, Franchise Celebrity, while signed to Knighthouse Entertainment. The album was preceded by the 2009 promotional single “If You Want Me”.
