Popular Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar has revealed that doing business is more lucrative than acting.
The Kano born actress in an interview indicated that she makes more money from her business.
She said: “I make money every day, it (business) is definitely better than acting. I’m a producer, which means I am an investor. I have to invest right now and I’m doing something that would yield me money because it is an essential business.
However, the actress who sells wigs, wrist watches, sneakers and perfumes explained that it was not easy managing both careers.
“Combining acting and running a business is really challenging, but we are growing by the grace of God.”
“It is one of the most difficult decisions I have taken in my life. I am not regretting it though, but it is quite stressful. To be an entrepreneur in this country is one of the hardest things ever, but I’m still grateful that I took that decision.”
When asked about the impact of the pandemic on her business, she said: “During the COVID-19 lockdown, I concentrated more on the business, so that I could expand it. Because of that, I did not shoot a lot of movies. I think I shot just two and one of them would be out in cinemas soon. I concentrated more on the business because I needed that to flourish. I will still produce movies but I find doing business really exciting. It is like a new career for me.”
