Young and industrious Nigerian student Adosiobi Joseph Ugochukwu has won the 2017 Chike Okoli prize for entrepreneurship award. He is a student and also works as a real estate and owns a fish pond too.
Speaking on how he was able to juggle the three together the young entrepreneur said he needed to make money while going to school and with the aid of the social media his real estate business grew.
Ugochukwu added that he advertised houses which people come to rent and from there gets his commission. The Nnamdi Azikwe university student said he is a proud landlord even while still a student.
Ugochukwu was unveiled on Saturday, July 1, at the annual Heart and Soul Gala held to remember late Chike Okoli who died in 2005 at the age of 25.
