Babalola graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in 2012 with a third-class degree in electronics and electrical engineering.

He shared photos from his graduation from both universities, as well as his different degree certificates, and wrote,

“Yesterday, 10 years after finishing with a third class from OAU, I graduated from @UniofHerts with a first class in Computer Science. What did they say about what God cannot do again?

I’d have loved to tag OAU too so they can say their own congratulations. Not sure if they’re on twitter, but if you know their handle, help me tag them. Pastor said this year, my enemies must congratulate me.”
