Almost everyone has a side hustle in Nigeria. They are a must when you live in a country that is constantly trying to kill you. Here are 10 side hustles that will make living a little easier.
1. Cultural dancer
This job requires skills that not everybody has, it’s not easy to keep people entertained for a long time so if you can’t do that don’t even consider this side hustle in Nigeria. Become a cultural dancer so you can blow off the frustration from working an annoying 9-5. You might not be shaking your ass in a yacht, but you’ll be shaking it where they can spray you money.
2. Family disappointment
It’s not easy to be the family disappointment but someone has to do it. Gather all your siblings and cousins, set up a fee they can pay monthly so that they can finally get that septum piercing or tattoo they want but can’t get until you get one, and their parents can just label you the bad influence. Don’t waste your talent.
3. Instagram skit maker
Do you know how much Instagram skit makers earn? A lot, that’s how much. Instead of wasting your time being the unpaid funny friend in your friend group, put your talent to good use. Do your mates have two heads?
4. Money doubler
There is no glory in scamming people and your destination is hell for sure, but if someone is greedy enough to want to double the small money they have through magic, they deserve whatever they get. If they arrest you sha please don’t mention Zikoko.
5. Professional clown
If most of your friends have your contact saved as ‘clown’ on their phones, then this job is for you. You are not a stranger to embarrassment and you have since gotten used to it. Fear not, we have a solution. You can accept people’s embarrassment on their behalf for a small fee. Help someone break up with her boyfriend, accept someone’s quit notice on their behalf, small things like that.
6. Professional girlfriend
Or if you want to be posh, you can call yourself an escort. If one of your best qualities is that you are a really good girlfriend even though they still break up with you, you should take this job. You never know, you might even find love but then again… this is Nigeria, you will more likely be kidnapped.
7. Professional sugar baby
This is one of the most lucrative side hustles in Nigeria, and it doesn’t interfere with any other job you have. If you are committed to a life of enjoyment, this is the job for you. Just know that there is no such thing as a sugar baby that doesn’t give sugar.
8. Playlist creator
If you have ever been in a situation where your ex asked you to help them make a playlist for their current partner, first of all, pele. Secondly, that’s just proof that you have good taste. Rise, don’t let your talent waste, stop making playlists for free.
This one is a dangerous Side hustle no one has mastered, but at least when you have food poisoning from eating Semo, you can take several days off work.
