Nigerian conglomerate, 7Figures Group of Companies, in a recent ceremony held in Lekki, Lagos unveiled other extensions of the organisation.
The subsidiary companies under it include a record label, fashion brand and a humanitarian foundation.
The founder and Chief Executive Officer, 7Figures Group Franklin Chiemelu Chikezie, during the ceremony, said, “7Figures Group of Companies is a conglomerate brand that houses 7Figures Music, Grandeur Franklin Fashion International and Franklin Chikezie Foundation (FCF) which happens to be my first shot into humanitarian activities.”
While fielding questions from the media, Chikezie explained that the 7Figure Music label has come to add value to the global entertainment industry with her numerous artistes who will be unveiled soon. These Nigerian artistes, according to him are hot, talented and creative with their songs and are ready to rule the industry soon. “Right now, we have concluded plans to sign our offshoot artiste who will be unveiled to the public soon,” remarked Chikezie.
“The fashion company, Grandeur Franklin International is new, hot and ready to explore the global fashion industry with our unique and creative designs. For embarking on this project, I have been a fashion person as you can see from what I am wearing now. I want to create a unique brand with our local materials which will be showcased to the global fashion community for appreciation.
“Secondly, under the fashion brand, we will engage our local talents who will be groomed by the company to produce clothing that will match international standard. I see this as another way of engaging our youths meaningfully and also empowering them to be independent with their learned career in tailoring. This will however help to put the youths out of the street for positive purposes. There is also a skill acquisition Centre established under 7Figure Group that will take care of our teeming youths to learn any trade of their choice, and after training, they will also be empowered with start-up seed funds and working equipment,” he said.
Chiemelu further noted that The ‘Franklin Chikezie Foundation’ is a project dear to his heart. “I grew up from a humble background and I know what it feels to be poor. So, the foundation’s target will be widows and out of school children. This group is more vulnerable. We focused on the children because I believe that education is the best legacy you can bequeath to any child, and when you do that, you reduce criminality in the society,” said Chiemelu Franklin Chikezie.
