But how did the brand come about I hear you ask.  Well, according to Femi Clay, the founder wanted  to create a brand that represented a cool lifestyle, one that people on the scene and up to date with current with fashion trends would want to be associated with.  Well, I think it’s safe to say he achieved his objective!

On how the name Dap Mod came about; Dap is short for Dapper, the word Mod means fashion, trendy, in style or in vogue.  Mod was also a subculture during the 1960s in England.  These were young people that were into fashion and music.

The biggest challengeDap Mod have faced is the logistical reliance on their delivery partners to get products to customers within the delivery period as promised. Sometimes these delivery companies don’t keep to this promise casuing late deliveries.  Unfortunatly, they suffer the consequences when these things happen.
Also the value of the Nigeria currency has also been a challenge.  “When we started our business the Naira was worth more than half its value today. We’ve tried as much as possible to not reflect that on the end price of the products but then our margins have had to reduce. “
