Speaking about her initial venture, Chioma said, "My first million naira was probably from throwing events in uni. I didn't even plan to, but I was so popular then and knew a lot of people. I'm still a friendly person; I don't look it, but I am. I'm also a girls girl, and I'm very good at convincing people to do stuff."

As Chioma continued, she recalled, "Some guys used to organise parties, and one guy asked me to sell tickets to my friends. I'd bring like 100 or 200 girls. The next year, he suggested we come together to throw these parties because I was really good at selling tickets."

She went on to describe the success of their party, revealing that they made around six thousand pounds, which converted to over a million naira at the time.
