Vaasa-based Lukumanu Iddrisu has landed a partnership deal with clothing line Jack & Jones (Vaasa branch) to clothe him for his subsequent speaking engagements. Iddrisu has made a name for himself in Finland through his career story and as a keynote speaker specialised in HR matters, the Finnish labour market, as well an advocate for the employment of international students and immigrants.
In an interview, the Ghanaian cum Finnish national noted that anytime he goes to speak to an audience, some people compliment his outfit. Hence, his wife suggested he write a proposal to clothing lines for a collaboration. “Yes, my wife suggested that. So, I drafted a proposal to 3 clothing lines and Jack & Jones (Vaasa) accepted,”he told Diaspora Glitz Magazine
The Ghanaian cum Finnish national took to his social media channels to make the announcement:
“It’s a pleasure to announce that I’ve entered into an agreement with @jackandjones.vaasa.
As part of the agreement, the clothing line will style me for my upcoming speaking events. Want to look exceptional for your occasion? Follow @jackandjones.vaasa on Instagram.
Many thanks to @auranathalie for the collaboration. Special thanks to my lovely wife (Hibba Saani Mohammed) for this initiative.”
The clothing line responded affirmatively to his Instagram post confirming the collaboration.
