Recall that in January 2022, the music act announced that he had got an admission to the University of Lagos, UNILAG as his mother advised him to get a bachelor’s degree because it was important.

In the 2022 tweet, he wrote;

What if I told y’all I got an admission into Unilag? Lol Mom said I still need to get a degree sigh, oh well see you guys in class!”

In the interview, he stated that he never resumed classes at the higher institution, as he planned to do part time schooling and at the same time, focus on his music carrer but the strike ruined his plans.

He added that he finally chose to focus on music and his mother is comfortable with his decision despite her earlier position.
