Rotimi obtained his first degree in Economics at the University of Abideen and an MSc. In Finance and development studies at the School of Oriental and African studies, London. After his education he worked as an analyst for European Economics and Financial Centre in London. After that he wrote for Euro money Magazine. These jobs exposed him to the agricultural realities in Africa.
He then moved back to Nigeria with the hopes that he would implement all he had learnt from his previous jobs in his home country. Unfortunately, his bank job did not guarantee any future in Agriculture. Thus he quit his job and went into farming. Today he is a proud owner of a 45,000 hectare rice field.
