Crayon, a Nigerian singing star, has explained why he has not sought higher education.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Crayon had enormous success in 2022 with his smash track ‘Ijo (Laba Laba),’ which introduced him to new audiences and established him as one of Afrobeats’ most sought-after chorus masters.
Crayon revealed in a recent appearance on Trending on Hip TV how he took the Joint Admission Matriculation Exam (JAMB) five times. According to Crayon, he gave up after the sixth attempt, resulting in his writing his Post UTME outside the hall.
Crayon described how, while taking JAMB for the fourth time, he met music producer Baby Fresh, who took an interest in him, prompting him to inform his parents that he would be forsaking scholastic pursuits for music.
“At the fourth time, I already met Baby Fresh and I knew I won’t be able to juggle school and music at the same time. So I sat my parent’s down and told them I want to make music now.”
Crayon’s father, like other parents, was dissatisfied with his son’s job decision, so he urged him to take the JAMB for the fifth time.
According to Crayon, he took JAMB for the sixth time and was at Unilag writing his Post UTME when he decided to pursue a musical career.
Crayon’s path to success was difficult since he had to wait long for his moment in the spotlight.
In any case, Crayon and his family would be overjoyed that his efforts had paid off.
