Nigerian musician, Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, aka Ayra Starr, has shared how she graduated from the University at the early age of 18.
In her words: “I schooled in Benin republic and I graduated from the uni when I was 18.”
According to the singer, she got into school early because her mother was not going to let her do music until she had a degree and she desperately wanted to be a teenage pop star.
The singer narrated that she has a degree in International relations and political science and is currently planning on getting another one.
“I was 18 actually. So my mum said I had to go to school first before she allowed me do any type of music. So it was school first, school first. I made sure I got into school early cos I wanted to become a teenage pop star.
“My goal was to become a teenage pop year so I knew I had to go to school early. So, I did my WAEC a year before I was supposed to graduate. I just tried it to be honest, I didn’t know if I was going to pass but I aced it you know. I aced it.
“So I got into school, I schooled in Benin republic and I graduated from the uni when I was 18. My course was 3 years. I have a degree in international relations and Political science. I’m thinking of getting another one. I have been so lazy, I don’t have the time but I’m taking french lesson, piano lessons and music lessons,” Ayra Starr.
