Kidpreneurs: Here’s How Twin-Girls Tami and Temi Oniyitan Are Channeling Sibling Success

There’s a lot that having a sibling can do for you, including making you more selfless, and improving your mental health but when you can actually make money alongside your sibling, and start out early in life together touching lives, that’s a whole new level of sibling goals. So here’s how two Nigerian sisters, Founders and CEO’s of  Mimi’s brand, Oluwasotemidire ‘Temi’ and Oluwatamilore, ‘Tami’ are channeling sibling excellence.

Being twins, Temi and Tami Oniyitan share the greatest sibling bond there is. While being a kidpreneur may be commonplace in some other parts of the world, it’s quite a feat over here and the twins are coining the phrase miniprenuer on the African continent and winning at it.

Founders and CEOs of the “Mimi’s” brand. The Mimi’s brand currently comprises Mimi’s Mocktails & Juices, Mimi’s Academy, Mimi’s Adventure Book Series, and Mimi’s Essentials. They host events, build libraries, and give back in a tremendous way.

The twins who shared during an interview with the Guardian that their mission is to motivate, inspire and encourage children and youths around the world to do what they love, dream BIG, make their dreams come true and use their success to make the world a better place, also dished on how they operate.

“We contribute our profits and donations from our campaigns to our Mimi’s Give Back Initiative,

from which we pay school fees, provide school supplies and organise book drives,

among others, for children from low-income families in Nigeria.”

Their entrepreneurial journey started after their mum called their attention to the number of out-of-school children in Nigeria. The twins said the information saddened them and they wanted to do something about it, and that’s how they went into business.

“When we were 7 years old, our mum told us about the number of out-of-school children in Nigeria. We were very sad and wanted to do something about it.

She told us about different ways we could solve the problem and we decided to start a business, so we can use part of our profits, as well as our platform to seek donations for these children.”

The siblings have made their mark and continue to do so, considering the amount of recognition they have received internationally.
