She went further to attend London School of Business and Finance.
27-year old Dabota also has a PR company to her name and she is married to billionaire Sunny Aku who is in his fifties and has 2 kids from his previous marriage.
She wrote on her Instagram the story behind her new cosmetic line:
“Ever since I was A Little Girl I’ve always loved to glam up, and those who knew me back then knew how obsessed I was with Makeup and anything Glamorous!
“As a young girl I dreamed of being the faces of many big cosmetics brands, and as a young woman, worked tirelessly towards achieving that. But I guess God had bigger plans for me.
“A few years ago a strong word came to me but I was scared: I didn’t know how to go about it or where to start from then I started attending cosmetic trade shows and I started meeting with big manufacturers in different countries to get more Education about the business and suddenly I was speaking a different language! It was not just about colors or what I really liked; I realized that there was a whole lot of work that had to go into starting one’s own cosmetic line. The sudden reality of the scope of what needed to be done also nearly discouraged me.”
“Keeping my plan a secret all these years made it even more difficult to bear when I was faced with challenges, because I didn’t want anyone to discourage me or jinx it. So I didn’t have that necessary support system of friends and family to run or talk through the trying moments I experienced.
Finally, just under two years ago, I decided to stay committed and do what needs to be done to bring my dreams to life, and after so many ups and downs, God Almighty did it. He gave me directions and taught me a lot that I didn’t know about this industry.
“And today we have DABOTA COSMETICS! @Dabota_cosmetics #DABOTA #DABOTACOSMETICS #Madeforqueens #Makeup #Mua #Beauty #Godisgreat”
