Graduating with a Joint BA Honors in Economics and Business from Bristol Business School in Bristol, UK, later achieving her MBA from Robert H. Smith Business School in Maryland, USA, and currently enjoying a career in Corporate Finance – Michelle Segilola always had a heart and mind for Entrepreneurship.
“Although I grew up in the D[M]V, my family and I always ate, watched, spoke, and learned everything Yoruba or generally Nigerian in our home. After spending months and money in search of these authentic Nigerian products online and in the local stores during COVID-19 travel bans of 2020, and sharing this search journey with family and friends, I realized that there’s a need I might be able to meet for more than myself. The most popular US alternatives personally lacked the traditional flavors, textures, or authentic connection to African communities I was looking for and that wasn’t good enough for me.”

With natural ingredients and organic manufacturing methods, these tasty, crunchy snacks can be enjoyed by all ages and most dietary plans.

Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, housewarming, team appreciation – no reason is too big or too small. Please contact us with a minimum 4 weeks lead time.
The Segi Bella Promise
All bags are family handmade, by us, and one of a kind. We do not copy shape, design, and material combinations from others or from ourselves; we don’t make the same exact bag twice. We do not wrap existing bags from other brands with Ankara materials. Our full construction bags are made with the highest quality Ankara materials sold in Lagos, Nigeria; lined with top grade polyester, nylon, and leather; and shaped and strengthened to last with quality fabric stabilizer and fiber wall inserts. All hardware, finishes, and original design additions are also of the highest quality, to last with the bag and all needs. All bags are inspected and safely packaged in a reusable generic or custom Segi Bella sack, and further protected with paper and bubble wrapping if shipped.
Original Segi Bella branded bags are only sold directly through the Segi Shop website; a select few options are also sold on Etsy, Amazon Handmade, and at DMV Market events.

With a proven quality of work, a loyal client list in Nigeria, and a great reputation on Jumia’s African online retail platform, I’m excited to combine my sister-in-love’s handwork and quality construction with Segi Bella designs and finishes, and to share my brand of West African fashion in the Diaspora.
