New celebrities, new money: How Nairobi West Niccur became a millionaire

Nairobi West Niccur is not a name a lot of people know -if they are older than 25 years of age. That is because you old people have not bothered to find out about the new crop of celebrities who did not need blogs and songs to blow up.

All they really needed was a social media and content their fans found relatable and voila, they became instant stars. Some cool kids decided to use that for their businesses and they are a rising crop of entrepreneurial stars. This particular class includes our subject of the day.

Nairobi West Niccur is someone whose passion is fashion (I don’t mean to sound cliche as much as that is what a cringe-man would say). He loves drip and being drippy. But more than that, he is a visionary who realized he can make money off his love for the best threads.

He decided to set up his clothing store, Thrift Trendy and has not looked back since then. So how does this work? Well, there are many ways to go about getting clothes to sell. He could easily go to Gikomba and get the best 2nd hand gear. Or he could opt to face the Orient.

If he has chosen the Gikomba route, he could cut out the middle man and simply go towards buying entire bales with trendy urban gear. Or if he faces the East, he could get stuff from Chinese manufacture. Admittedly it won’t all be original but I doubt his market cares.

Whatever you decide to settle on if you decide to use his formula, one thing that matters is how you handle the online transaction because let’s face it, you will not always get to meet the sellers face-to-face.

And that is where Nairobi West Niccur and you could really get help from an amazing service offered by Co-op Bank. And that’s because they have a product just for you! It’s called Chapa Pay.
