Why I Abandoned UNILAG Admission – Rema
Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, has revealed why he dumped his admission to the University of Lagos.
Recall the ‘Calm Down’ crooner had announced in January 2022 that he gained admission to fulfil his mum’s desire for him to complete his education.
However, a month after the admission, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) went on an eight-month strike that halted academic activities in the country.
In an interview with iHeartRadio, Rema explained that he had to bail on the admission because the university went on strike which was going to affect his plan.
According to the singer, he had really strategized how to juggle schooling and touring, but the strike made it awkward.
Rema also confirmed he has no plan to move his base out of Nigeria, adding that he loves being connected to his roots.
He said: “I got admission last year but I bailed on it because the school went on strike. All schools went on strike in Nigeria. I wanted to really strategize schooling and touring. The whole strike made it awkward. It was like glitches.
“I live in Nigeria, still in Nigeria, I am sticking with the roots. I don’t plan to leave outside of Africa, I like staying connected to the roots. I also want to stay close to family. It is always good to come back to where it started from, it is helpful so I don’t forget.”
