One of Nigeria’s most outstanding female entrepreneur,Bola Okolie( nee Oni) is 50 today. The CEO of Bonix Drinks, Nigeria’s number one drinks service provider is well celebrated within the events sector. Her company is a pioneer of many ideas that have now become a trend in the drinks service business in Nigeria and she has become a role model for many women in the business.
A trained nurse,Bola os a graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife,where she started her business,while helping her late mum who was selling soft drinks at Tejuosho market, back then.
This humble start has indeed helped Bola build her brand successfully,alongside her husband, Bernard Okolie.And in over 20 years,together,they have built Bonix Drinks into a big brand of international standards,and their business has inspired many to veer into it.But Bola has continued to hold her own on account of the many trainings she has undergone abroad to enhance and keep their services in hot demand. On her special day,many of her colleagues in the Events sector have been celebrating her on Facebook and instagram,as she turn 50.
