Nigerian Rapper, Olamide Adedeji, widely known as Olamide Badoo, has revealed that he dropped out of the university because his parents could not afford his tuition fees.
He disclosed that he was able to make it in life by discovering his talent and by an endless hardwork. He also identified discipline, commitment and being focused as catalysts for achievements in life.
According to Punch, the ‘Love no go die’ crooner who was a special guest of honour at the Summer camp organised by the Ogun State government at Akin Ogunpoola Model College, Akinale in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state on Friday, said he was determined to succeed in life against all odds, given the stark reality that his parents were poor, and were not able to pay his tuition fees at the tertiary institution.
He said ….
“I am from Ogun State here, I do not joke with my culture and language, in fact, I came from a poor background. I had to drop out of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu Ode, when it was getting difficult for my parents to pay my school fees.
However with doggedness, perseverance and hard work I was able to find myself where I am today.”
He urged the participants at the camp to always dare to be different and avoid unnecessary peer pressure.
