Nigerian singer, Korede Bello has revealed why he dumped music at the peak of his career to pursue a degree in mass communication.
Recall Korede Bello, best known for his hit single “Godwin,” came into the limelight in 2014 with the release of his globally successful hit song “Dorobucci.” He signed a record deal with Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records in 2014. At the time, Korede Bello was indeed a force to reckon with in the Nigerian music industry, as his songs topped many music charts across the country.
However, at the peak of his career, Korede Bello returned to school to pursue a degree in mass communication.
Speaking on why he dumped music at the peak of his career to return to school in a recent interview with The New Telegraph, Korede Bello said,
“I love education, not so much traditional education, but I love to learn how the world works and how the human mind operates. So getting a degree in Mass Communication seemed congruent with my profession.
“Writing a headline is similar to writing a chorus. They both have to be catchy and evoke some emotional reaction. Music and news are both languages of emotional connection. So, it is a good thing to be educated on your passion. I have observed that you can be the most famous or richest person on earth and still be unhappy or unsatisfied on the inside.” He said.
