Alex Gatheru, better known as DJ Leqs is an entertainer signed to Kaka empire based in Nairobi.
With all the negative impacts of the COVID19, all entertainment avenues were temporarily closed to curb its spread which prompted Alex to turn to his second passion which is farming to earn a living during this time.
With a four acre farm located in Gatarakwa, Kieni constituency, Alex hosts maize, napier grass and the latest addition comprises three varieties of onions namely garlic, bulb and spring.
He started part time onion farming last year but has recently fully switched to farming following the COVID 19 pandemic.
Leqs says the beauty of onion growing is that they take three to four months to mature and with bulb onions, one can harvest, cure and store them for up to six months if prices in the market are not good.
All the best Alex!
