How Jaji Abolore steered Room 130 to enviable heights in three years
The hallmark of successful people is that they do what unsuccessful people are afraid of. They have the understanding that opportunities do not happen, they are created. The South Africa-based Nigerian entrepreneur, Jaji Abolore, a major stakeholder in the country’s nightlife venture, is a successful entrepreneur and a major player in the rainbow nation’s hospitality industry.
About three years ago, the sociology graduate from the University of Ibadan founded Room 130 Bar and Booth Liquor Store in Johannesburg. It is a member of the Booth Group, which also has the Booth Champagne Bar.
Over the years, Jaji Abolore sharpened his skills in several businesses and his astuteness is reflective of the top-level success Room 130 Bar is currently enjoying, as it will clock three years in the next few days, with the celebration set to be commemorated with lots of dance and unlimited fun.
It is no surprise that Room 130 Bar has become the mainstay of the southern African country’s pub and club life, and the main place elites and the who’s who in the country converge each night to experience the best of entertainment and a taste of the best drinks in town.
The entrepreneurial spirit in Abolore has earned him the reputation of a champion. His incursion into business began as the managing director of Jars Nigeria Enterprises, a company that specialised in importation and exportation of wines and beverages.
The Booth Group founder continued his drive for success when he became the chief executive officer of Highland Movers, a firm in Midrand, Gauteng, with operations similar to that of Jars Nigeria Enterprises.
The entrepreneurial spirit in Abolore dates way back to when he ran a beauty salon and spa outfit called Skin and Beauty Matters before he founded the Booth Night Club in 2016.
Abolore promised and fulfilled a different level of experience to customers of Booth Group earlier this year, following his visit to the home of Martell, the highly respected French cognac brand in Paris, France.
“We have planned a whole year on how to open new frontiers for the Booth Group. Our fans and clients can look forward to a scintillating 2022.”, Jaji Abolore said after the visit to France.
Abolore added: “We will raise our game and reward them with big surprises.”
