Jesse Josh (Shaygo Graffiti): About the brand (Shaygo Graffiti):

Born in 2015, but started operations fully in 2017. Born out of Jesse Josh's great passion for arts and vast creativity.

A brand that revolutionalized Graffiti in Kaduna State and pulled some reasonable attention of the people towards art which wasn’t the regular before now.

The name Shaygograffiti represents the originator's love for wall arts. The name is a combination of the originator’s tribal name (Shadua) and last name (Goje) which is a family name, used to signify originality and passion for Graffiti 

We basically deliver quality art products and services through the movement called ‘art on everything by Jesse Josh'. 

Versatility is a core part of our existence and we are always craving for more opportunities to beautify and bless the world through our creativity.

MIKC: Can you hint us about your entrepreneurship capabilities and possibilities?

Jesse Josh (Shaygo Graffiti): About entrepreneurship capabilities I say I have learned some skills from my late mom on how to immediately identify problems where you stand and provide solutions and then get paid for it. That has really taught me how to exist anywhere and grow in my business. For now that's it, I will leave the rest bragging rights to God's grace and future results to speak for me.

MIKC: What major problems did you encounter during start-up?

Jesse Josh (Shaygo Graffiti): I had issues with financing, religious judgements from friends and family, accommodation and even the right crowd who know the value of what we do. That is still a challenge, but we are hopeful and grateful so far.
