Nigeria has always been replete with talented minds who channel their gifts and passion to particular professions. In these fields of practice, they have always done excellently. Talking about great professionals, the 1960s witnessed a surge of Nigerians into virtually every profession that could be thought of.
In fact, within this time space, some unlikely professions came to be recognised by Nigerians who, at the time, were known to be particular about agriculture.
Professionals were bred in the field of medicine, sports, beauty and even transport. In light of this, there were new crop of doctors, motorcyclists, beauty queens and footballers.
Seeing some of these professionals in their unusual attires, demeanor and groupie photos can stir up nostalgic memories.
