Nigerian singer, Adedamola Adefolahan, popularly known as Fireboy DML, has opened up on how finishing school was a struggle for him.
Fireboy claimed that he was a superb student at Obafemi Awolowo University who was divided between his academics and music, which caused a severe drop in his grades.
Fireboy went on to say that he had to retake an extra year since he had fallen behind in his studies due to a lack of proper planning and time management.
He made this known in a recent interview with media celebrity Chude Jideonwo.
He said: “Finishing school was a struggle. It was a tough time for me. I had an extra year but I finished.
To be honest I just couldn’t wait to finish school because I knew that after school like this I wasn’t going back home. I was going straight to Lagos,” said the singer who was,at the time, based in Abeokuta.
He continued: “There was a time my dad came to my school. Oh God! Final year and your dad came to school.
It was as if I was in secondary school and he was holding my hand like let’s go to your lecturer’s office. It was really embarrassing and those were really tough times for me.”
