What a good year for celebrity journalist and style genius, Kayode Alfred! After offering fashion options all-year-round for every member of the Nigerian demographic, the Baron of Aristocrat Clothings has officially joined the league of philanthropists with his very own Foundation, Kayode Alfred Foundation (KAF).
Kayode Olanshile Alfred kicked off his foundation with as much gusto as one would expect from a style whiz. A well attended event, Alfred gradually unveiled his plans for the Foundation: to draw from his resources and train 50 different people in tailoring and fashion design. In other words, the odds of having 50 different Kayode Alfreds running around Nigeria, disrupting current fashion trends and introducing the novelty that only Alfred can think up.
Among the attendees were shakers and movers of the political landscape, business sector champs, celebrity journalists, style barons like Alfred, and several others. Hon. Deji Ogunsakin, Ekiti State PDP gubernatorial aspirant, was there. So were philanthropreneur, Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji; Oldenglish Superstores and Bakery Chairman, Akogun Lanre Alfred, Ayobami Ladipo, CEO of PorscheClassy Media, Mrs. Abiola Alfred and Public Relations expert, Adebola Bolatito; Victor Ganzallo; CEO of Mumog Sport and several others.
Hon. Deji Ogunsakin and Akogun Lanre Alfred shared the spotlight with Kayode Alfred as they promised to sponsor 15 youths (5 from Hon. Ogunsakin and the remaining 10 from Akogun Lanre Alfred) from Ekiti State for the KAF training.
Kayode Alfred gave the Vote of Thanks, acknowledging his guests, especially the various managements of Itar Small Chops & Cocktails, Oldenglish Superstore & Bakery, and Aristocrat Clothings, who powered the event. Kayode Alfred emphasised his conviction that the youths are the future, and so investing in them is the same as sowing good seeds into the future.
For Kayode Olanshile Alfred, after the three-part launch (of Aristocrat Flagship store, Aristocrat Institute, and a laundry and drycleaning service company), the Kayode Alfred Foundation (KAF) is just the way to end the year.
