Is Oo inspiring a new dress culture for Internet entrepreneurs?
From wearing jeans and t-shirt at tech events to Zuckerberg-inspired hoodies to meetings, it seems that Nigerian entrepreneurs would soon be dumping their starched shirts as Oo Nwoye is inspiring a new cadre of hip-hop styled Internet entrepreneurs.
Dressed in a faded blue jean and pink-coloured checkered long-sleeved untucked shirt and wearing a blue and white coloured flip-flop at Tuesday’s DrinkUp with EchoVC at the high-class open-air bar on the rooftop of the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Oo could easily have passed for an Alaba market trader.
The last time I met him at the Piccadilly Suite in Lekki, he was dressed in a jean and shirt with a headphone around his neck, but this time, he had a tablet on his left arm and was holding a glass of star beer on his right hand.
So I ask: Is Oo’s new dress culture the new cool? Would clients/customers or users adopt products if entrepreneurs start dressing this way? More importantly, would investors even listen to what you have to say?
