Read Her Biography In Full.
“My name is Anyi Asonganyi, i am a creative entrepreneur with many hats; Marketer, Makeup artist, Fashion Designer, Skin and Beauty Therapist, Educator and Mentor.
I am the CEO and creative director of OZI INTERNATIONAL; a fashion, beauty and lifestyle company located in Deido – Douala, Cameroon.
In 2007, armed with a set of skills and a makeup kit, i set out to change the beauty industry in Cameroon and thus “Ozi by Anyi” was born.
In honour of my father who passed in 2016, i rebranded to “Ozi International” because for reasons i clearly see now, that is how he chose to call me when he was alive.
I was a young woman with a dream and i have dedicated the past 11 years of my life in building my business block by block. Today, Ozi International has as many as 14 employees with a head office in Douala-Cameroon. We own a natural and organic skincare line, we offer makeup artistry services and training (makeup school), we run a talent management agency, we have a clothing and accessory line and we are the creative force behind some of the most glamorous looks in dozens of magazines, billboards, weddings, music videos, movies, fashion shows across the country.
I am not contented with just running a successful business, i am equally passionate about inspiring other young girls to be the best they can be. This is evident from the several young women i have taken under my wing as employer, mentor and friend. I have trained over 500 women in makeup artistry and inspired a lot more to chase their dreams.
It is worth mentioning that the artistic hand behind my brand image and great pictures is my younger brother, Nji Asonganyi, owner of Nji Asonganyi Studios… OZI INTERNATIONAL would not be the brand it is today without him.
I was born on the 11th of May 1988 into a beautiful family which hails from Fontem sub-division in the South West region of Cameroon. I have three supportive siblings. We were raised in Essos – Yaounde by my strong mother and my legendary father.”
