Troy: Good afternoon ma’am

Troy: Its been good, we thank God.

Davitz: can you tell us your real name?

Troy:my real name is Olateju Olanrewaju.

Davitz; Nice name *smiles. So can you tell us about you?

Lanre: Well I’m Lanre by name, I have a Diploma in Marine science from University Of Lagos which I finished in 2007 and I’m also a graduate of JABU (Joseph Ayo Babalola University). I studied microbiology in JABU and graduated this year but I started the shoe making business in 2010

Davitz: Woow. You studied microbiology! That’s cool. So what made you go into the shoe making business?

Lanre: I used to work as a traveling agent but then I got tired of working for people and decided to be on my own. My drive to become my own boss. It’s my passion. I used to design my shoes when I was in school and my friends used to say I had great talents in shoe designing and structures and you know I got excited.When I go shopping I always have a picture of what I want to get in my head and most times I end up settling 4 less. Basically those are some of the reasons.

Davitz: So how did you come about the name Troy?

Lanre: I have a nickname called Troy which was given to me in school by friends. When I was going to start the business I felt Troy was a suitable name which goes with the brand.

Davitz: Did you have any form of training before starting?

Lanre: Yes I did. I started learning more when I started the business.

Davitz: So where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

Lanre: well in 5 years, I see myself as a first choice brand in Nigeria. A trusted shoe brand for both the elite and average Nigerian while making giant strides to break into the international market.
Davitz: when people see your shoes or products what do you want them to think of?

Lanre: Quality and Unique.

Davitz: so how can people reach you?

Lanre: you could call me on 08057199717 or follow me on twitter @Troyshoefactory.
