Nigerian Rapper, Emeka, AKA BlaqBonez, has revealed that going through the university almost sent him into a state of depression.
According to BlaqBonez, while his peers were focused on getting As, his own priority was his music.
He added that he was grateful the music thing eventually worked out because if he didn’t, he has no idea on who would have been taking care of his mother.
His tweets read ;
I can’t believe I was almost depressed in University cos them engineering shit was killing me, all i wanted to do was rap
University made me feel like a failure, n*ggas were getting As and future looking bright, i was dropping mixtapes and hoping notjustokay would post it Persevering face
Really grateful for how far I’ve come. I don’t know who would have been taking care of my mum if this music didn’t work
When I see n*ggas reading overnight all the time at Law 201 hall, I’d be asking myself what am I doing with my life like this? I can answer now, i was laying a foundation
My serious friends in school are doing well in their respective fields rn, we all made choices and dedicated our lives to it, and its paying off
