Unlike what obtained in the past, when people were satisfied once they had a single paying job, the world has evolved into the age of ‘side hustle’.
A successful career is no longer enough. In this age, people are more creative, innovative and hungry for more. This is evident in the lives of many successful Nigerians. Despite making millions from their careers, they still go out of their ways to set up businesses that are run alongside their careers.
Here are 5 Nigerian celebrities that are part of this trend, running thriving businesses alongside their careers.
