Written by Admin

Being a celebrity in the Nigerian entertainment industry is no easy feat. It comes with the expectation of wealth and a lavish lifestyle. In an unfavourable economic climate like Nigeria’s, celebrities, faced with taxes and losses from piracy, usually need to diversify sources of income to keep up with the life of glamour.
Here are some Nigerian celebrities who are beating the system and continue to stay well afloat with profitable side hustles.

Iyabo Ojo

She is not only a prolific actress and producer in Nollywood, but the mother of two also owns one of the most popular Amala (yam flour) spots in the highbrow area of Lekki, Lagos.

The restaurant and lounge, which was opened in September 2017, continues to enjoy patronage, even with the frustration faced by the actress a year after opening due to the taxes and bills threatening to close down the business.
Iyabo Ojo also owns a well-patronised spa and skincare shop in the same location.

Kunle Afolayan

The celebrated actor and filmmaker owns a film-equipment rental company.

Mercy Aigbe

The light-skinned beauty is a household name in the Nigerian movie industry. However, her success is not limited to the screens, as she also owns a thriving boutique with two branches in Lagos and Ibadan, as well as a fabrics store.
Her fabrics store is an online business catering for owanbe uniforms like Ankara, lace and others.

Actor Aremu Afolayan

When he is not acting, the actor is mostly telling fans and followers about new arrivals at his automobile dealership.
