Viral sensation and rapper Olamide
has not always had it rosy while
growing up. Just like many regular
Nigerians out there, the YBNL boss
had to deal with deprivation and
other relatable challenges.
One of such challenges the ‘Wo’
crooner remembers is the fact that he
couldn’t complete his tertiary
education because of paucity of
funds.
During a Summer Camp put together
by the Ogun State government at
Akin Ogunpoola Model College,
Olamide was a special guest brought
in to inspire the participants. The
multiple awards winning rapper
shared his grass to grace story to
inspire the folks.
He told that he was where he is as a
result of his dedication to his talent,
hard work and grit.
Here is what Olamide told the
students.

“I am from Ogun State here, I do not
joke with my culture and language,
in fact, I came from a poor
background. I had to drop out of Tai
Solarin University of Education,
Ijagun, Ijebu Ode, when it was
getting difficult for my parents to
pay my school fees.
“However with doggedness,
perseverance and hard work I was
able to find myself where I am
today.”
