Ogunbekun Olaitan; The Founder of Crafts Village, Nigeria

My name is Ogunbekun Olaitan, I’m the founder of Crafts Village Nigeria. An online community that promotes and connects creative arts, crafts and other Afrocentric businesses in Nigeria to their target customers.

Crafts Village was founded in April 2014. It is an online platform that helps consumers connect easily with their favorite Art & Craft products and services, as well as other locally made creative Afrocentric items, fashion, gifts, art supplies and architectural materials. This is made possible with the online local directory, the multi-vendor marketplace as well as a physical retail store, CV Creative Shop. 

I am a Paper Crafts Artist who specializes in Handmade Greeting Cards and have impressed up to the Presidency level of the Country. Being a graduate of the prestigious University of Lagos with a Bachelors in Biochemistry. I have accrued several years’ experience of online businesses, the e-commerce and online retail field where my skill set has been further broadened to include Content Management, SEO, Google Analytics, Search Engine Marketing, Web design, development and management, Strategic planning, and business development. 

I’m a multi-potential creative guru and I’ve personally built myself in several handicraft trades. These includes creative digital prints services, ankara bags making, tailoring, functional and decorative crafts such as wall frames, artistic clocks, utensil designs, Afrocentric fashion and more.
