I dropped out of school but I made it through hard work – Hip hop star Olamide


Popular hip-hop act, Olamide Adedeji, also known as Badoo has said that he dropped out of school but he was able to make it in life by discovering his talent and through dint of hard work.

He also identified discipline, commitment and being focused as catalysts for achievements in life.

Olamide said these on Friday when he went as a special guest of honourat the Summer camp organised by the Ogun State government at Akin Ogunpoola Model College, Akinale in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state.

The musician said he was determined to succeed in life againstall odds, given the stark reality that his parents were poor, and were not able to pay his school fees at the higher institution.

He said, “I am from Ogun State here, Ido not joke with my culture and language, in fact, I came from a poor background. I had to drop out of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu Ode, when it was getting difficult for my parents to paymy school fees.

“However with doggedness, perseverance and hard work I was able to find myself where I am today.”

He urged the pupils at the camp to always dare to be different and avoidunnecessary peer pressure.

Earlier in his brief introduction of the guest to the campers, the state Governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun advised the young boys and girls to be diligent, hardworking and be consistent in whatever they do.

Amosun who was represented by theState Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Otunba Dayo Adeneye advised them to strive for the best in their academic pursuit.

While he told the youngsters to extend the knowledge gained at the camp to their kith and kins, the governor promised that his administration remained committed to the development of education.

He said the sector would remain paramount in the scheme of things in the state.
