Olorunyomi “Yomi” Omoniyi Makun (32): Founder Yomi Casual
Degree: HND Fashion and Design, Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State.
Brother and official clothier to ace comedian Ayo Makun.Got to study Fashion and Design as a result of a mistake made by his sister during filling of JAMB form. Once told his lecturer that he’d never be a tailor. Started Yomi Causal with a sewing machine bought by Ayo (cost N10, 000) from his brother’s house in Iponri Estate. During the day, the living room is made the office, same house had other comedians – Elenu and Seyi Law – as occupants. When elder Makun left, Yomi turned the house to his office, later moved to Bode Thomas, Surulere and then Lekki.
Advises the younger generation to start/create their ideas early in life as time waits for no one.
