Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has recounted attending the university for about six months before he dropped out to focus on music.
He spoke in a recent interview, giving reasons for abandoning tertiary education at an early stage to concentrate on his music career.
The singer disclosed that he had to choose between creating time to make music and going to school, which he needed money to fund.
He recounted all his struggles and how he overcame them to be where he is today.
Omah lay wrote: “I was in the university for like half a year, and I stopped. I just dropped out. Yeah, it was a hard choice to make because at that time I was just learning music production and I needed financing for school. I needed time for music production”.
“Somehow, I just loved music production so much I could let go of school for music production. I felt like maybe sometime I will come back but when I got really deep into music production, I didn’t go back to school, and I didn’t even have the time”.
“At some point, it felt like a wrong choice, but then, things started clicking, I started making beats that I love, that people wow. I started writing songs for people and people didn’t believe that that was me, and I just kept doing it until I found myself in Germany right now. I’m here right now, I’m doing this interview right now”.
