“I gained admission to UNILAG last year, but I moved on because of ASUU strike” – Rema (Video)

Young music star, Rema has revealed that he has ditched his UNILAG admission and is focusing fully on his music.

Rema UniLag admission You may recall that the 22-year-old musician had revealed that he gained admission to University of Lagos last year to satisfy his mum’s wish for him to complete his education.

However, a month after his admission, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) went on a 7 months strike.

The singer who never returned to begin his education at the institution has finally opened up on his reasons for not doing so.


In a recent interview with a Caucasian host of Count Down Radio, he revealed that he had decided to bail on it because the university went on strike.

This left the white host surprised as he apparently hasn’t heard of universities going on strike.

Speaking further, Rema said that it was beginning to seem awkward for him to juggle both schooling and touring, so he had to dump school and focus on his music career fully.
