Funke-Bucknor Obruthe and Omotade Alalade have been featured in the 2016 edition of BBC 100 Women list.
Obruthe, an event planner, and Alalade, an infertility expert, are the Nigerian representatives on the list.
The BBC 100 Women 2016 list is a compilation of inspirational and influential women from across the world.
“They will bring you groundbreaking moments of defiance, new takes on fairy tales, stories of octogenarian cheerleading, and take you inside the world of e-gaming.
“Others will be exploring black feminism or taking part in our first ever live festival. You will hear from some of the world’s biggest names but also from women you may never have heard of, but who all have astonishing stories to tell,” said the BBC.
30-year-old Alalade owns an infertility center, BeiBei Haven Foundation.
The foundation helps those who struggle with infertility and baby loss with support and knowledge.
Funke-Bucknor Obruthe, 40, is a popular wedding planner, who owns the popular Zapphaire events.
Her company has put together some of the biggest celebrity and high profile weddings in Nigeria and abroad.
“What inspires me is the need to see those around me succeed, pulling the next human being up, and not accepting failure as an option,” she told the BBC.
