Ebun is the Chief Operating Officer of the Lady Fern’s Home, a home-made food delivery company based in Lagos. She has always been in the business of buying and selling foodstuff since her primary school days, when she used to buy a cup of granulated sugar, repackage it into small plastic bags and sell to her family members at N2 each.

Guess it’s safe to say, she has been able to reform and redeem the title.
