Looking for Quality Wristwatches in Nigeria? Check out Crivel Watches

Crivel Tres Driver Box

Looking for quality Wristwatches in Nigeria? Well, look no farther. I am proud to announce to you a brand that is “the perfect liaison between modern technology and watch making artisanry at the highest level”, Crivel Wristwatches.

You know at Bellafricana, we’re passionate about quality African-owned businesses, and so we’ll bring you only the best, and nothing less.

Just before I gist all about the beauty of these wristwatches by Crivel, how do you identify a good watch?

Let’s start with:

1. The watch crystal

A good quality watch should have crystal made of either Sapphire or Mineral Glass. Acrylic glass is cheaper but scratches easily. So, if you’re thinking quality, then avoid Acrylic glass watches at all costs. Crivel watches are made from the fine, sturdy mineral glass, guaranteed to last.

2. The quality of the straps.

Some wristwatches have their straps electroplated, or of poor quality leather which will wear out due to friction. And for a watch you bought so expensively, it would be heart-wrenching to wear a watch that doesn’t take long for its straps to give.

If it is a leather wristwatch, Genuine leather is your best bet. There are some good synthetic leather (e.g. PU Leather) that will withstand the test of time. However, genuine leather is still most preferable. Crivel Wristwatches use high quality genuine leather that is long-lasting.


3.  Its Artistry

If you’re looking for quality wristwatches in Nigeria, you should look out for their uniqueness. Wristwatch making is a tedious process, and a watchmaker’s love for his craft is evident in the total outlook of the wristwatch. As for a Crivel wristwatch, you only need to take one look at it to pronounce it a masterpiece.


Now, that we know what to look out for when shopping quality wristwatches, let’s explore some of our favorite watches from Crivel.

E-Commerce Store Alternatives Business Owners Can Try for Free

 E-Commerce Store Alternatives Business Owners Can Try for Free

Whether you’re a startup or a small business owner, you’ll agree with me that having an e-commerce store/ website is very important for business. An e-commerce can help broaden your brand in ways beyond imagination.

What are the benefits of having an e-commerce store?


1. An E-commerce is like a 24-hour sales person

Unlike humans that close up shop, your e-commerce website will be there 24 hours. And people can shop and visit all round the clock, without you being there to coordinate the shopping process.

2. It Increases your Brand’s Visibility

If you’re thinking of expanding your brand’s outreach, an e-commerce store the way to go. With a well-optimized website, your brand’s chances of being found through SEO will increase. The more your brand comes up in the search engine, the more likely people are to buy from you.

3.  It is a healthy option these days

With the inception of the Corona Virus, physical contact is not advisable, right? An e-commerce website is the best way to ensure this. There is absolutely no need for physical contact, as the entire transaction will be done online.

4. It is convenient

Another great thing about an e-commerce website is the ease of doing business. The consumer doesn’t need to go through the hassle of physical buying, and can shop from wherever, whenever. You the seller, also have the convenience of making sales right from the comfort of your home.

Now, that we have established that an e-commerce store is important? What if you can’t afford one just yet?


Well, keep reading. Because I have compiled for alternative e-commerce stores that are free, and are resourceful. Ready? Let’s start.

1. Paystack Commerce


Recently, Paystack launched an e-commerce store, packed with resourceful tools complete with product links, where you can add images, vides, prices, GIFs and lots more. It also comes with easy delivery options, an inventory/ order tracker, and lots more. The best part? It comes at Zero cost. Yes, it’s absolutely free.

To get started, click here 


2. Flutterwave Store


Flutterwave store also launched a store in light of the COVID-19 occurrence to encourage  people to #keepthelightson seeing as business owners might have a hard time bouncing back. This store is absolutely free, and convenient. Want to register? You can try it here

3. Visa.com


Visa.com.ng also launched an amazing e-commerce store that business owners can get for free, plus an additional $200 in advertising. Fantastic right? I agree too. You might want to give it a try

4. Whatsapp Catalogue


This isn’t really an e-commerce store, but the catalogue option gives you the opportunity to get your products, along with their prices all in one place. And with the addition of a catalogue link, it’s much more easier to have your potential customer glance through all your products and make a selection. No stress, no hassle.

We recently had a hands-on, practical session on how to setup your Whatsapp Catalogue. The session was hosted by one of our talented Bellafricana Members, Dara, (Founder of Just Journal Ng)

Guess what? Almost all in attendance had their catalogues up and running. That’s the essence of a community you know? Having members who are willing to share and uplift one another because of the strong belief that we rise by lifting others. That is simply the heart of Bellafricana.

PS: We also have lots of useful resources on the Bellafricana Membership Platform which all business owners could really use. You can access it once you become a member of our amazing family. To sign up, click on this link here

Which of these tools have you tried, or will be willing to give a shot? I’ll love to know.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Bellafricana Membership Platform!

Hello there, how are you doing today? I’m doing fine, thank you. Did you know that we launched a Membership platform for Bellafricana members? Oh yes, we did!

Why? Because for a very long time, our focus has been to make our members products globally accessible. While that is still our aim, we got to realize that we were ignoring one key thing: The fact that creative business owners lacked the empowerment, and the right resources, to help their business grow fully.

And so, we rolled up our sleeves and worked tirelessly until May 11, when we launched the platform.

See Launch video below:


Now, we also anticipated (and have been asked) some questions about the platform which we would like to address. Are you ready?

1. What exactly is this Membership Platform?

Well, It’s a website that gives our members access to a vast library of masterclasses, tools, Guides and Templates, Checklists, and other resources that will help business owners make better decisions.

2. Is this Membership platform open to everybody?

Unfortunately, this membership platform is one of the many perks of being a member of the Bellafricana family. So, what that means is that you have to become a Bellafricana Member to use the platform.

3. How can I sign up to the platform?

Visit www.bellafricana.com/members-signup, then click on the “Click to join the family now” button.

4. Does the membership platform access come at a cost?

Yes it does. However, we have very flexible subscription packages so that you can select the package that is pocket friendly. To check out the packages, click here:

5. Is the membership platform an App?

No, it’s a web-based platform, and once you’re on-boarded, you get your unique login details for you to gain access to the platform.

6. You talked about webinars . How can I get access to the past webinars I missed?

Well, the good news is that you can get to watch masterclass recordings, as they are regularly uploaded to the platform.

7. What’s the period for subscription?

Dear Business Owner, Which Of These Business Challenges Do You Want Solved Immediately?

Dear Business Owner,

Which of the following challenges would you want solved immediately?

1. Marketing

You need your products shown to a wider audience, as you’re fully aware that while you may have your marketing figured out right, nothing else beats your products being seen through a new pair of eyes.

2. Resources to Learn

You understand that for your business to grow, scale or evolve, then you need to keep learning, unlearning and relearning. You’re aware that it’s possible to get stuck if you keep doing the same things the same way, and so you need to keep improving.

However, there’s a huge volcano of knowledge out there, and it can feel overwhelming not knowing where to start.

3. Support

You’re thankful for the backing your friends and family give you (infact without them, your business might not have even kicked off). However, as you mature in business, you realize that doing business alone can be daunting. Alone? Yes, without the support of like-minded business owners that can open the way up for collaborations, can be your accountability partners ( to ensure you don’t deviate from your business goals)

4. Reduced Costs

Wouldn’t it be absolutely Marvelous if these business costs could just miraculously disappear? Lol. We all know that it’s not possible at all. To run a business, money has to drop, Right? Branding, Printing costs, logistics, and so on could drill holes in one’s pockets. What if these costs could be slashed so the funds can be diverted to other things?

5. /Exposure/ Being Well Positioned

There are global, continental and national institutions that are charged to recognize and honour and support hard-working and amazing creative indigenous businesses. They can find your brand only when you are well-positioned. For instance, the Nigerian Export Promotion Council, Bank of Industry, Lioness of Africa, ITC She Trades, Nigerian Export and Import Bank (NEXIM) are always looking for ways to support creatives.


We recently released an E-book Outlining 10 strategies to grow and scale a creative, African-Owned business. And It’s yours to grab.

Bellafricana’s stand on the current world happenings

Bellafricana's stand on current happenings

So much is going on in the world and indeed it can be a somewhat emotional turmoil.

Since the beginning of the year, we have had many unfortunate incidences happen and more than ever before, African-owned businesses are at the brink of dying.

Each day, we as a community-based platform, access ways we can prevent this from happening and deploy methods that can reverse this radical trend.

We stand against racial injustice, rape and every other ills that plague our system.

The Bellafricana community is filled with relentless and audacious African women and men, we join our strength with yours.

Our core mission is to inspire you everyday and look for ways to support every member of our community.

Just as it’s paramount that Bellafricana remains true and focused to its objective towards our members & the community at large.

We are happy to let you know that we have started to explore ‘actionable’ ways to lend our support and voice to those standing against the horrible and evil acts plaguing our society.

We advise you do so too, with us, as we are ALL in this together

The Bellafricana Management

Who Is A Mentor?

Bellafricana's stand on current happenings

Hi there! I think there are three kinds of people reading this post today:

A. The Mentor and

B.  The Mentee.

C. Those wondering if having a Mentor is really worth it

Are you A, B or C? Or a little bit of all three? Lol.

First off, to our mentors in the House, we say “Thank You” for your continuous efforts for setting businesses up for success. We appreciate you all for being pillars of support, and source of constructive criticism when needed.



President, Association of Mentees

(I sincerely hope there isn’t such an Association in which case, I have usurped the position of the current leader.😅)

To the Mentees, Congratulations! You just signed yourself up for phenomenal growth.

If you find yourself in the third category, then I hope these lessons I picked up at the IG LIVE session with Lanre Adisa will help you see how important a Mentor is for your business growth.

Today I will be discussing my Key Takeaways from the IG LIVE session we had with Mr Lanre AdisaBefore I get started, I would like to give you some background gist (trust me for that).


Bellafricana's stand on current happenings

Prior to the Launch of our new membership platform, we had a line up of insightful IG LIVE series and Webinars. (Catch up on how the Launch went down here). One of such IG Live Series is the one I mentioned. Mr Lanre Adisa has been a longtime supporter of the Bellafricana Brand and an awesome Mentor too.

Bellafricana has come a long way, but that journey will be incomplete without Mr Adisa’s name in the story (look at me talking like I was actually there😅), so who better to discuss the topic: “Leveraging on Mentorship for Business Growth

First of all, who is a Mentor? Oprah Winfrey says: “A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”

Wikipedia defines Mentorship as “a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person”

So the Question is : Just how important is a mentor to your business growth? Who can be a mentor? How best can you maximize this relationship?

Here are some things I learnt:

1.  A Mentor inspires you to achieve your GOALS

It is a mentor’s job to inspire, and if need be, push you to achieve your GOAL. Why is the word “goal” emphasized? Because before you approach your mentor for help, then you can’t be clueless. So, make sure to have something you’re working towards.

2. Your Mentor can support you in ALL ways, however monetary assistance is not obligatory

Yes! A lot of Mentees go into relationships with Mentors because they expect financial support. There’s nothing wrong if a mentor wants to provide monetary support, but he is not obligated to. A mentor can however provide links, or information as to how financial support may be achieved,

3. A family member can be a mentor

A family Member as a mentor? Yes, that’s totally fine because most times in the end, what you build with Mentor-Mentee relationships transcend professionalism and evolve into something more filial

4. Want to make your relationship with your mentor valuable? Do your due diligence:

If you want to cultivate a seamless relationship with your Mentor, you need to play your own part. Make research, do your homework, so it’ll be easier to get the help you need. This is not to say that you must have everything worked out (If you did, why do you need a mentor then, right?) But be sure to be prepared, to the best of your ability.

So, I’ll just stop here and hope you were able to learn a thing or two from this IG LIVE session just like I did.

Were you in attendance? Please leave a shout-out and let me know what I missed out.

PS: Here’s a replay of the session in case you missed it!
