Oloye Akin Alabi is one of Nigeria’s most well-known business figures, with over 269k Twitter followers, but he didn’t become famous overnight. He didn’t even present a compelling product, to begin with. He attempted many enterprises, failed miserably, tried again, and succeeded with NairaBET.com, Nigeria’s first sports betting website. Rather than give up on his aspirations, Akin tried again and succeeded with NairaBET.com, Nigeria’s first sports betting website. Akin Alani is now a successful serial entrepreneur, author, philanthropist, and member of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, representing his federal seat.
