February 11, (THEWILL) – Neya Kalu, the daughter of former Abia State governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has taken her love for beauty to a new height by increasing her investments in that sector.
Neya, who already runs Basecoat, a chain of nail salons, recently floated a beauty hub which she runs in conjunction with her close friend, Onyekachi Iroha, a permanent cosmetic artist who is also the founder of Beauty Atelier. The beauty outfit is based in Abuja with plans to expand to other parts of the country.
Beside her love for the beauty industry, Neya is currently the Chairman of The Sun Newspaper. This position she assumed after her father stepped down from the mantle of leadership. Kalu however remains the founder of the newspaper. Educated at the University of Buckingham, England, Neya holds a degree in Law and Finance. She is also the Vice-Chairman of Sun Heavens Hotels and Resorts. Previously engaged to be married to Abia-born Lagos bred businessman and politician, Chima Anyanso, a few years ago, the wedding unfortunately got called off as a result of unpalatable tales on the part of Chima. Both of them have since moved on and are married to other people. Neya has been married to businessman Lawrence Iyere since 2017.
