Celebrity stylist, designer and mother, Toyin Lawani is turning 30 this year, and has revealed exactly how she feels about it by showing off a new set of stylish photos and talking about her “multimillionaire empire.”
Ms Lawani took to Instagram to post a series of images, showing herself all dressed up in a lavish gele look (designed, styled and captured her own brands Elegante by Tiannah Styling and Tiannah Photo Studios), announcing;
“I set trends, I don’t follow, I’m a princess by birth, I was born into wealth, but I made my own way, relying on the wealth of your family is weakness.
Go out there, DON’T LET THEM TELL [YOU] WHAT THEY WANT [YOU] TO BE. A lot Don’t believe when they see me work with my hands, but it gives me joy when I do my work with my hands, even with the fact that I have 40 staffs, it gives me Joy.
…I don’t pretend to be what I’m not, I don’t act like I don’t shit. I eat my Eba with my hands. A lot of celebs let fame get into their heads and meanwhile they have nothing. Empty barrel makes the loudest noise. Work hard what [you] deserve will definitely come to you one day.
Talent is the only thing any human can’t take from [you], focus and build yourself up. I started my business with 150k from a small shop – now I run a multimillionaire empire, with 20 businesses under it.
Did I think I would get there? Hell yeah, I worked for it and still working at it. What [you] work for is what [you] will get. Stay focused and don’t let opinions of haters stop [you] …With just believing in yourself, you can rule the world, so far [as] your talent is real.
Happy birthday to me.”
