Lily Adeleye

Lily Adeleye isn’t your typical six-year-old. In fact, she’s the youngest CEO to have her products available at Target.

According to Face2Face Africa, the young entrepreneur runs Lily Frilly, a girl’s fashion brand. The girly collection offers a variety of items, including dresses, hair bows, lunch boxes, and backpacks. The accessories, in particular, are carried at the major retailer.

“I own my own company,” she told Black Enterprise of her achievements. “I don’t just like it, I love it.”

Lily gets her business savvy from her mama, Courtney Adeleye, the founder of the Black haircare line, The Mane Choice. As the mompreneur dominated the hair industry, Lily became inspired to follow her own ventures as early as three-years-old.

“From the time Lily was 3, I knew then she had a business mindset,” the eldest Adeleye said. “At an early age, as she watched me build a successful business from the ground up, it exposed her to many possibilities and goals, so with that, we didn’t wait until she was an adult to help her pursue them.”

Though the tiny beauty maven is hard at work on her latest ventures, she still enjoys the simple things, like Saturday morning cartoons.

“Being the first mother-daughter duo to hit shelves in one of the largest retail stores in the world is still surreal to us,” Lily’s mom said. “It’s history. It’s life-changing and it should definitely be celebrated.”
