Having served millions in the freelance writing community, with an already established name to himself, and a well-funded dream, Bamidele Onibalusi, the founder of WritersInCharge.com and one of Nigeria’s most recognized name in Blogging, jumped on to the next big thing.
He wants to impact as many lives as possible, and what better way to do that then feed as many as possible.
A full-page interview on Nigeria Tribune’s 13th of April print detailed his ambitions and how he intends to achive that goal.
With over 25 full-time staff under his employ at his Deloni Farms, Bamidele is well on track to fulfilling his ambition. And he spares no time in getting things done.
See the key highlights of what Bamidele discussed with Niyi Oyedeji of Tribune on his goal to solve Nigeria’s food problem with his farming business below:
Bamidele Onibalusi is a freelance writer, digital marketer and entrepreneur. He is the CEO of Deloni Farms Ltd.
About Deloni Farms: Deloni Farms Ltd is a full-scale agricultural operation with a concentration on catfish farming.
Deloni Farms aims to solve the food shortage in Nigeria, and other African countries through agriculture.
Bamidele Onibalusi was motivated to go into agriculture after studying data on human birth and death rate. After realizing that there are more births than deaths, Bamidele realized that the demand for food may never be met. This motivated him to go into agribusiness.
While Deloni Farms was established in 2014, it currently employs 24 full-time staff.
Lack of regulation on the government’s side is currently the biggest challenge faced by catfish farmers. Bamidele wants the government to address this.
Bamidele advises young people that are currently dreaming of going into farming not to give up. Farming, though challenging, is a lucrative business.
