Every journey has a start point. The Label Outfit FIneDope knows no different in its rise to becoming one of the most formidable brands in recent times to have made such a significant presence in the entertaining sphere of the community. Puzzled by their endearing growth and progressive coverage in recent times, we reached out in research to learn about the brand, what they do, what they have been up to, and what we gathered was immensely inspiring and worthwhile.
FineDope, like every diamond startup out there, kicked off with an idea shared among two futuristic, creative, and hardworking individuals named Favour Chinedu Chukwuedu Ikemefuna, now mostly referred to as Favi (Gidi Boy) and Oghomwenomase Victory Osaivbie, often referred to as OVO.
While being undergraduates and breezing through the walls of the University of Benin, this duo mapped out the details, goals, cast and representation of what they saw as the dream. Determined to ride through, chasing every goal with it, knowing no limit could stop them or put them to a halt.
In a conversation with half the duo and brains behind FineDope, OVO gave an insight into how it all started in 2018, becoming inspired by his interest, his love for the entertainment industry and the drive to improve it. Favi Pitched the idea to him, he brews interest in it, and was presented with the offer to be president and also Co Own it. He said even though he knew Favi in 2017, they didn’t become close friends until 2018. He added “Favi was the brain and founder of this idea, his trust towards willingness to let me co-own and pilot the affairs of the group gave a better boost to how much of a person Favi was at that point.”
FineDope became a thing quite fast as people started showing interest in being part of the group and making a difference. Creating and Curating content, photoshoots and detailing the path of what they had to build was essential, and that has not changed to date as the workload keeps increasing while they keep making a difference daily.
Over the years, FineDope has not only become one of the most formidable Entertainment Group In South-South, Nigeria. They have also engineered their path by enabling the most respected talents, putting out material-worthy projects, currently making significant waves on the internet.
With Favi springing off as lead Artiste from the camp, Creative Manager, and Co-Founder, Finedope, Oghomwenomase Victory Osaivbie, OVO saw the need for growth and diversification and hence the birth of a management brand, Pride Of The South (P.O.T.S.) which oversees the needs of FineDope.
Let’s say two hardworking talents have been able to make do with the little they had. From the city of Benin, in their hostel in Ekosodin, building one of the most formidable entertainment brands while also showing they have no signs of making a stop as they keep it going.
