About CEO

Kene Rapu

Creative Director, Kene Rapu is a trained lawyer who moved back to Nigeria in 2011 to attend Law school.

She realized that she wasn’t too keen on Law as a profession

but was more passionate about fashion and the business side of it.


Also, being a savvy female with larger-sized feet,

she noticed a  gap in the market

the true creative emerged and she ended up making a pair of slippers for herself.


At the time she started, it wasn’t fashionable to wear slippers,

most of the slippers I recall were those white and blue flip flops you’d wear to the market or wear in a boarding house.

Well, Kene made herself slippers and so many compliments and requests encouraged her to make a business out of it.

5 Reasons To Purchase Kene Rapu
