Interview with Folorunso Alakija

Folorunso Alakija is one of the most successful business women of Africa and owns a Nigerian printing company. In the interview with our Director of International Business, Dr. Clemens Schütte, she tells us about her plans for the upcoming drupa 2020.

In February, we had the great pleasure to visit a special person in her office: Folorunso Alakija. This powerful Nigerian woman is one of the wealthiest entrepreneurs in Africa, very successfully involved in diverse sectors such as fashion, oil and – of course – printing industry. During our visit we also met the lovely Mrs. Elsie Akin-Adesolaher, the COO of Alakija’s printing business Digital Reality Print Limited, which belongs to her Rose of Sharon Group. Akhigbe Itua, the West African Representative of Messe Düsseldorf, joined the visit as well.

Dr. Clemens Schütte, our Director of International Business, was glad to meet her for the following interview. We’re happy to hear that Folorunso Alakija also confirmed to visit drupa 2020!
