Ini Dima-Okojie is a successful Nollywood actress. Before going into acting, she used to work as an investment banker. According to the actress, her banking job was a good one; it paid her well, and she also learned many things. But she wasn't fulfilled with what she had and decided to try out her passion, which is acting.

At some point, Ima said she stopped ironing her outfits to work. She would just find something stretchy to wear and go off to work. It was at that point that she knew her mind wasn't in the banking work anymore and decided to leave the job and start a career in acting.

2. Toke Makinwa

Toke Makinwa is a female Nigerian celebrity who had also worked in the bank before leaving the profession to start a job as a radio personality, television host, vlogger, lifestyle entrepreneur and author. 

According to Toke Makinwa; her job in the bank wasn't that bad as she was a two hundred and fifty thousand Naira (N250k) salary earner. She was doing well, but she had to leave the job to go to what she loved.
