Multi-award winning Nigerian gospel singer, Lara George, has taken to her Instagram page to reveal to her thousands of followers that now lives above the present economic situation of the country as she flaunts new career in farming.
The talented singer and songwriter, who disclosed that she had set up a garden when tomatoes were very expensive and scarce, said she is set to harvest fresh tomatoes from her garden.
The excited farmer and mother of two took to her social media to share with her fans about her new found love.
She wrote, “And in other news, these are beautiful tomatoes almost ready to be eaten fresh from my garden. Does everyone remember when tomatoes prices went crazy in Nigeria?
“Well DH had the brilliant idea of sprinkling some tomatoes seeds in the garden and in a few weeks later, voila #MadeInMyGarden#SayNoToRecession.”
