Nigeria’s pop star, D’Banj, has said that he is considering delving into full scale farming to help fight poverty.

D’Banj  wants to encourage many African youths to embrace agriculture as a means of livelihood.

He face of 2014 Year of Agriculture Campaign declared by the Africa Union.

“As a face of the ONE Organisation’s initiative to drive full participation in agriculture, I have to live by example. I am going to engage in agriculture personally to encourage millions of African youths.

“I need to let them know that unlike the old stereotype of farming which was considered a punishment, modern farming on the contrary,  is a cool source of employment for many graduates,” said D’Banj.

According to him, there should be a change where many youths are expected to embrace agriculture and see it as a potentially high-yielding venture to tackle hunger and poverty on the continent.
