In Nigeria, some of our favourite celebrities prior to joining the entertainment industry had other dreams of becoming surgeons and maybe the next scientist to discover the cure for a pandemic.
Somewhere along the line, these guys took a turn away from the lab/theater to our TV screens. Here are five of your favourite celebrities who went from wearing stethoscopes to giving us goosebumps on camera.
1. Kiki Omeli
The beautiful Kiki Omeli is a medical doctor! It’s as simple as that. She studied medicine and surgery at the College of Medicine, University of Lagos in 2006. I know a lot of people before the last sentence did not know about this. Well, there you have it.
The beautiful actress has been mesmerising our TV screens over the last few years with her acting talent. There has been no slowing down for Omeli. She is best known for her role as Lovette in the TV series Lekki Wives.
