Nigerian singer and Dangbana Republik frontline act, Bella Shmurda finally opened up on having an extra year in his school, Lagos State University, due to carryover.
The 25-year-old singer who recently finished his program with the institution revealed that he has a couple of carryovers in courses which will have him spending an extra year in the school.
However, he has assured that he would go back to finish his degree in school. Even though he stated that the degree was not important to him, he said he would do it for his family.
“My mum is always on my neck and she works in LASU. So definitely to be a responsible child. It’s not definite I will be in class but come on, I must get my degree. That’s the goal.
I must finish my carryovers. Though I’m done with school I have an extra year. So I must finish all that.
And I’ll be glad to do that because it’s what I really want. So, I have to finish up to be that legend, Bella Shmurda.
For my school, definitely, I must get my degree. It’s important for me and my family. So shout out to Lagos State University. You guys are good, you guys are the best.”
It will also be recalled that Lagos State University a while back requested that Bella Shmurda come back to finish his degree and the singer responded with a line from his hit song, “Vision 2020” that said ‘4 years in LASU is really nothing.’
His response, “4 years in @LASUOfficial is really nothing. Better get tha money! The economy is starving!”
Bella Shmurda, while celebrating his birthday recently, recounted his struggles with his grades at LASU. He was thankful that he left the university to pursue his music career.
“I for still Dey LASU Dey wine and dine with carryovers and stranded with nothing in my pocket… forever glad I did my thing,” he wrote.
In response to his tweet, the university encouraged him to return to class and complete his degree.
“Also glad @LASUOfficial played a part in your beautiful story because the University does not make people rich, it only incubates them to find and achieve purpose. Please come back to class and earn your degree”, the university had responded.
