Kwam 1 to Return to School Many Years After He Dropped Out

Posted by Thandiubani on Thu 28th Mar, 2024 -

The Fuji star spoke about his love for education in a recent chat with journalists at his Mayegun Resort in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun.

Fuji legend, Wasiu Ayinde aka Kwam 1 has indicated interest to return to school after dropping out many years ago.
According to him, his reason to return to school is out of the love he has for education.
He stated this in a recent chat with journalists at his Mayegun Resort in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun.
The 67-year-old singer confirmed he is a “school dropout”, adding that he will enroll as an undergraduate at Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) in Ago-Iwoye, Ogun state.
Kwam 1 said he had discussed his intentions with the dean of the school of music. He added that part of his decision to pursue a degree at OOU is to see how he can contribute to developing the varsity’s music faculty.
“All my life I do research. Every opportunity that I have. Presently I am in school. As a matter of fact, I will soon be a fresher at Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU). I am just trying to do things in my own way to suit myself. You learn till you die,” he said.
“Very recently I had the opportunity to go and attend a function at the OOU. We had a mass set of graduands. The bands on the stand tried their hands on some of my works to recognise my presence. I was so overjoyous that time. So, in the form of wanting to appreciate them more, I sought to speak to the leader of the band and there I was told it was a band from the music class of OOU and they just started that class. I showed so much interest. I called for further discussion and in the cause of doing that I told them I want to enroll. I want to be part of them to see how we can develop a lot out of that.
“… part of what I also discussed with the dean of the school of music at OOU was that we can do better. To bring a whole lot of artistes. The state is blessed with many names like Haruna Ishola, Ayuba, Shina Peters, Wizkid, Olamide, and D’banj. I told the dean that people like me can be used to bring everybody together and develop. That is what prompted me to want to go back to school.
“I am a school dropout… I know the value of education… will I say I have self-education? Any sane person will never criticise the beauty of education.”
