Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has revealed why he dropped out of the university six months after he gained admission.
He disclosed this in an exclusive interview on ‘The 77 percent’ on Deutsche Welle (DW).
Given the reason, he said that he dropped out after he faced struggle with school fees payment.
And at that time, he was also learning music production.
He stressed it was hard decision for him to drop out of school but he had to follow his passion which was music production.
He said, “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 wowed people.
“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.”
