Superstar Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor aka Rema has disclosed that he gained admission into the University of Lagos, UNILAG, last year but ditched it due to the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
Recall that the 22-year-old musician had revealed that he gained admission to satisfy his mum’s wish for him to complete his education. However, a month after his admission, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) went on an 8 months strike.
The singer who never returned to begin his education at the institution has finally opened up on his reasons for not doing so.
In a recent interview with a Caucasian host of Count Down Radio, he revealed that he had decided to bail on it because the university went on strike. This left the white host surprised as he apparently hasn’t heard of universities going on strike.
Speaking further, Rema said that it was beginning to seem awkward for him to juggle both schooling and touring, so he had to dump school and focus on his music career fully.
