They appeared on season 9 of Shark Tank USA in 2018. But the Sharks were not interested in investing in Zuvaa. They were not convinced that Zuvaa had a unique selling proposition that could set it apart and guarantee success.

Zuvaa is no longer in business. The company shut down after experiencing rapid growth and struggling to keep up with demand. In a blog post announcing the closure, Zuvaa’s founder, Kelechi Anyadiegwu, explained that the company was facing challenges with infrastructure, customer service, and product quality.

Some companies that appear on the show have not achieved great success, and Zuvaa was one of them. Sometimes businesses don’t succeed because of many reasons. Sometimes, the deal falls through after the founders say yes on camera. Or, as you’ll see, sometimes things happen to the founders themselves, and they choose to abandon the business. Anything is possible. However,  Zuvaa went out of business in 2019. And the product is no longer available in the market.
