“One of the hardest things I’ve had to do is combining school with entertainment, I almost give in to the frustrations and pressure but I’m happy I didn’t,….is it the stress of traveling Lagos (work) and Ibadan (school) several times in a week?
This minute I’m in Lagos working, another minute I’m in Ibadan to answer school calls, an example was how I left Lagos Island 4 pm yesterday (working for infinix), 7:30 pm I was still held in Lagos Traffic, and I have an exam 9 am this morning in Ibadan, emi mo ya Gbokada (I carry bike )…well I got to Ibadan 10:50 pm, prepared for my exams and…
Or should I talk about how I sometimes reject some deals with good pay and exposure because school Exercises won’t let me? Or that pain of how I rejected some jobs because I was supposed to write tests the same day and boom!!!!! The Test was postponed!
