Popular Afrobeats singer, Divine Ikubor, also known as Rema, has disclosed that he decided to forgo his admission to the University of Lagos due to the 8 months strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU).

In an interview with Kiss FM radio, he disclosed this, stating that he had moved on and told his mother of his decision.

Recall that in January 2022, Rema took to the microblogging platform, twitter to announce that he gained admission into UNILAG.

He tweeted;

“What if I told y’all I got an admission into Unilag? Lol Mom said I still need to get a degree sigh, oh well see you guys in class!”

Speaking on why he never resumed classes at the higher institution, Rema said he wanted to do part time schooling and music but the strike ruined his plans.

He continued by saying that, despite her early opposition, his mother now supports his choice to concentrate on music.
