September 17, 2016 – Pictures: Meet Top 3 Nollywood Actors Who Have Ventured Into Farming Business

Now that things are changing very fast and the economy is in a deep recession, people are finding new ways to supplement their income, and this time, Nollywood stars are not left out.

Here are the top 3 Nollywood celebrities who have ventured into agriculture.

Taiwo Hassan

Like his very close pal, Yinka Quadri, Taiwo Hassan fondly referred to as Ogogo, has ventured into farming but their reasons differ. While Quadri is farming because he wants to give back to the society, Hassan has delved into farming because of the adverse effects of pirates’ activities on the film industry

He did his birthday some days back and he has a lot to be thankful for. Not only is he an accomplished actor, he is also a successful farmer who owns a poultry farm in Lagos State. In an interview, the iconic thespian said his reason for going into the business was to give back to the society. He further disclosed that he spent over N7m on the business venture.

Halima Abubakar

The controversial actress revealed that she grew up in the farm with a grandmother who attended to her crops daily. She further gave an insight into how her side business has been.

“I went into agriculture because I grew up with a grandmother who was a farmer. About half of my family have plots of lands to their name in Kogi State. I wanted a home where I would have everything at my beck and call so I decided to have a farm with a home where I can go to during the holidays and not lack food or go to the market. We have poultry, vegetables, and everything you can think of in a farm. When it comes to how lucrative the business is, well, you can make a lot of money today and tomorrow you might not make as much money. But one thing is certain; there is a bright future in agriculture especially if you have money to pump into it without waiting for the returns. It is an investment and it would definitely yield money over time. People come to buy turkey from me and once I start selling them, they get sold out within a day.

    THE WAY THAT AGRICULTURE HAS received attention these days is like nothing else in the whole history of Nigeria. Blessed be the plague that befell us! May crude oil be exalted for falling so low that Nigerians are waking up today! Above all, may we recover soon!
