On episode 2 of Binging with GameChangers, professional makeup artist and entrepreneur, Banke Meshida-Lawal, reveals what it takes to turn one’s passion into a profitable business.
From her keen interest in fine art at a young age, to waking up at 5.30am to start her makeup for a 9 am class, to her obsession with buying new makeup products and also exploring her innate passion for makeup artistry as an undergraduate, to establishing her business, Banke takes us on an exhilarating ride through her career trajectory.
Today, Banke is one of Nigeria’s most sought after professional makeup artists, especially in the bridal sphere. Her company, BMPRO Ltd. is one of the nation’s leading indigenous makeup brands, which boasts of over 65 products within the Nigerian market and caters to black women all over the world through distributors in Nigeria, UK, USA, Ghana and Canada. BMPRO not only includes the provision of makeup services but also beauty advisory, an online magazine, and a training school that provides quality makeup education.
Banke and her team have also served high profile socialites, first ladies and Billionaire wives in the country. She was the official professional makeup artiste to Patience Jonathan and prior to that had worked with Mariam Babaginda and Titi Atiku.

He studied Law at the University of Uyo and now has a Ph.D. from the University of Nottingham. Means he’s a Doctor of Law and he’s oh-so-young!

You know we have to tell you all about this week’s fashion! In the second episode of Binging with GameChangers, show host, Seyi Banigbe, switches up her style in two versatile looks.
In the first, which was styled by Kayito Nwokedi, Seyi gives off a
sultry vibe in this red-hot asymmetric Lola Baej outfit. The Bland2Glam accessories worn are understated-yet-classy. Blue pumps add an exciting pop of colour to the entire look.
Seyi gives us a girl-next-door meets sassy talk show host vibe in this Titi Bello creation. The sky blue flared dress made with Vlisco fabric is such a delight to look at.
