Many don’t know he was born into the business. He comes from a lineage of Jewelers. His father was a renowned Goldsmith. He started it as a business fully in 1986.Goldpose4Barry is 35 years old in Jewellery making & Goldsmithing.
He was born into the business. His grandfather was into it and his father also was a big player in the business. And for the past 35 years, he has been producing different kinds of Jewellery. His clientele list is made up of all the BIG celebrity women in Lagos, Abeokuta, Ijebu Ode, Ibadan, Abuja and other parts of the country. He has many clients abroad.
He started Jewellery & Goldsmith artistry when he was an NCE graduate and a Classroom Teacher in a Secondary School in Abeokuta. He spent all his Primary and Secondary School yrs helping his father in his workshop. His father was a legend goldsmith. He, it was, who taught him the nitty-gritty of the job.
He told City People his story of how he finished from the College of Education in September 1985 and he was immediately employed by the Ogun State Teaching Service Commission in February 1986 and was posted to a Secondary School in Abeokuta. It was at this school that he met his Destiny. He met some female co-teachers who encouraged him to start Goldsmithing and graciously ever ready to place orders for his services. And they magnanimously introduced his products to their friends. 3 yrs later he put in a letter of resignation and became a full-time Goldsmith & Jewellery artisan, as a result of overwhelming patronage.
Due to the intricate nature of his craft, coupled with the weariness of the job and the high profile clientele and heavy patronage, he found it very difficult to go back to school. But he had the desire to be well educated. Many people tried to discourage him by saying what do you want to do in school at your age? after all he was making money.
In January 2018 despite his tight business, he graduated with a Master degree (MSC) in Business Admin, having passed all the exams by the Senate of the National Open University of Nigeria. Most of his designs are stunningly beautiful. He operates from Rafat Ajoke House, Asero, Obatoko Abeokuta.
