CityPeople Honours Aso Oke Queen, Mummy Tisbee, At 2021 CityPeople Fashion & Beauty Awards


One of the high points of the 2021 City People Fashion & Beauty Awards, was the celebration of Chief Mrs. Olufunmilayo Ogunbadejo, the founder of Tisbee Aso Oke.

 She was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her remarkable contributions to the Aso Oke Business.

Many were pleasantly surprised at how refreshingly young she looked at 75.

 Tisbee Aso Oke commenced business in 1993 with the sole aim of revolutionising the use of Aso Oke in our day-to-day social activities. At 75, she has not retired. She has only slowed down a bit to allow her 2 beautiful and hardworking daughters, Dele & Funke Ogunbadejo to take over the active running of the business.

 The founder, Chief Mrs. Funmilayo Ogunbadejo runs the main business, whilst her daughters run The Annex of Tisbee.

 Her daughter, Dele, told City People a few months back how they got involved in the business. “My sister Funke & I both started with Mummy, later we started introducing new ideas and designs to spice up the conventional Aso Oke. We added a new twist, like stoning, hand painting, and introduced laser cut Aso Oke designs which till date remains the rave of the moment among fashionable people”.

According to Dele Ogunbadejo, “at Tisbee Aso Oke, we maintain one unique procedure. We just don’t sell to people ready-made Aso Oke. We design and weave to client’s taste and satisfaction. "

The head office is at 5 Majekodunmi Street, while the Annex is at 4 Agbaoku Street, Off Opebi, Ikeja-Lagos.
