Celebrities are perceived as people who earn their living just off their known talent and fame.However, some celebrities go on and take on day jobs after making their names in their respective industries.
Let’s look at five of those celebrities.
1. Deyemi Okanlawon (Actor)
Deyemi Okanlawon is one of the biggest movie stars in Nigeria and there is no doubt about that. Since he shot into limelight years ago, he has become one of the most-sought after actors in the country.
Surprisingly, in early 2020, we got the scoop that Okanlawon was appointed as the Head of Film Distribution at Silverbird Group. Okanlawon’s job is to lead the distribution of all the movies under Silverbird and make sure these movies generate and even surpass revenue targets in the cinemas.
2. Dr Sid (Musician)
As one of the most popular musicians to have come out of Nigeria, Dr Sid needs no introduction. From his days at Mo Hits records where he made several hit songs to Mavin Records where he is presently signed to, Dr Sid’s success story in the entertainment space is one we will continue to admire for a long time to come.
3. Desmond Elliot (Actor)
Desmond Elliot is one of those celebrities who have done it all in the entertainment world. From acting, directing, producing, and even a brief stint in the music industry, Elliot can be described as the master of all in the entertainment industry.
In 2015, Elliot ventured into politics and was elected as a lawmaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Surulere Constituency. He ran and won again for the same seat in 2019.

Bankole Wellington also known as Banky W has always been the boss even from the onset of his music career. From his early days in uni, he created the now-famous E.M.E. record label. We already know how he returned to the country and ran one of the most successful labels in the country.
The likes of Wizkid, Skales, Niyola, and Shaydee all rose to fame via that label.
Well, in 2018, the E.M.E. boss dissolved his record label and converted it to a talent management company focused on creative marketing, advertising, public relations, and brand events.
