The Nigerian store launch has garnered major support from key African influencers including Nigerian blogger Linda Ikeji, popular regional media source Instablog9ja, social Instagram influencer '@Patorankingfire', as well as many others.
"African American women make up the largest percentage of our key demographic. They are who we cater to whenever we strategize on our brand direction, locations, and growth.

The campaign flooded the Her Imports Instagram feed, bringing in over 50,000 new Instagram followers in less than 30 seconds. This came immediately after the company set phone lines aflame in early June with a female empowerment graduation contest promoted by both Angela Yee of radio station 105.1, and the hair and beauty transformation icon, Anthony Cuts. The gifting partnership was an immense success where ultimately, Her Imports gifted a whopping combined total of $40,000 in hair and install services to a total of 100 students.
