In 2015 Kanu opened a modelling agency and photographic studios in Nigeria called Papillo which is his nickname.

The studios not only cater for photo shoots, they also have video production facilities and an in-house music studio.

Kanu started this new business  just months after he had corrective heart surgery for the second time.

He has also founded his own soccer school based in Canada which provides professional advanced football coaching for both boys and girls from ages six up to 17

Kanu is not related to Welsh international footballer Hal Robson-Kanu.

His wife Amara Kanu is a fitness guru and author of a book called ‘Healthy Living’.
