Nollywood Stars Gather As Canadian Artist, Entrepreneur, Ozzmanic Launch “NAIJA SPORTS MARKET” In Lagos
It was all glitz and glam in Lagos recently when Nigerian’s fast growing online outfit for sports items, “NAIJA SPORTS MARKET” officially made public, her entry into the business of sales of everything sports.
The event which had the best of Nollywood stars in attendance would stand as one of the best, having had the endorsement of quality individuals who came to give support to the budding entrepreneur and Canadian trained artist, Oswald Okojie, known as Ozzmanic who oversees the company.
“NAIJA SPORTS MARKET” which prides itself as the “Giant of sporting goods in Africa” deals on Board Games, Football, Running Shoes, Sports Wears, Card Games, Table Tennis, Soccer Boot, Basketball, Gym, Accessories, Equipments, Football Jersey and had its launch at the Lagos office located in the Lekki area of the city with Veteran actors, Paul Obazele, Maimuna Yahaya-Abaji, Mike Ezuruonye and Emeka Okoye present.
Speaking on the launch of “NAIJA SPORTS MARKET”, the CEO, Mr. Oswald Okojie, said that the dream to bring a platform such as he has just launched, was conceptualized 8 years ago before he left for the University, when he was chosen to go play for Nigeria’s Under 17 in Abuja, but unfortunately, Nigeria could not make it to qualify, but the seed for this was sown at that time and in other to keep the dream of sports alive, and because he also realized that most people who love sports do not have access to sporting wears, he decided to open Naija Sports Market to fill in the gap and in all, the platform will have football competitions, sports competitions in-built, in other to encourage the younger generation and give them the platform to pursue their dreams and to shine.
“We first started online, Ozzmanic says, infact, the moment Ahmed Musa scored the winning goal two years ago or thereabout, the Nigerian Jersey became our most sought-after good and we sold out like in two days and that became our leveraging point at Naija Sport Market, therefore, the need to open the flagship store in Lagos, where people from all works of life can walk in and make purchases for very high quality sportswear for the very best of prices in this part of the world.
As an online sports store, our desire here is to achieve the goal of being a store where quality is made king and customer service, queen, making sure that when orders are placed through our website which is www.naijasportsmarket.com or through our whatsapp platform, +2348150886716, we deliver ahead of time to show that in Nigeria, you can place orders online and get your ordered goods delivered as at when due.
On his part, Nollywood’s finest veteran actor, Paul Obazele says that the opening of Naija Sports Market was a great debut outing, which proves that as people strive to be more active by engaging in sporty activities, they won’t say that because the National Stadium is too far from them, they will not engage their bodies anymore. Ozzmanic through the Naija Sports Market has brought in the kits you need closer to you, so, you go pick them up and hit the road with that exercise to keep fit. So, let us crash the Blood Pressure problem, the arthritis problem, let us truly show our wives, husbands, our children that we love them by staying healthy and this is what Naija Sports Market is opened to help us achieve.
Speaking further on the need for regular exercise by Nigerians, Mr. Obazele said that our bodies are given to us by God, but God will not come down to help us take care of them. We need to really take care of our body and make it truly the temple of God, by keeping it clean spiritually and physically. A sick person he says cannot attract people to God, but a healthy person can.
“I will not do business with you if I see that you a dying or if I notice that the moment I give you my money, the next you are dead, so, when people see that you are healthy, they get easily attracted to you naturally and this is what I believe Ozzmanic’s Naija Sports Market seeks to achieve at this time.
