Popular Nigerian musician, Adedeji, simply known as Olamide Baddo has revealed why he had to drop out of TASUED. According to the local rapper, his parents couldn’t afford his school fees at that point, so he was left with no option but to drop out.

Quite a lot of people still have doubts about Olamide ever attending TASUED. The serial hitmaker was actually in TASUED, maybe not for a long period but almost two years.

Did Olamide attend TASUED

Olamide, who was a guest artist at the Summer Camp organized by Ogun State Government at Akin Ogunpoola Model College, Akinale in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state on Friday, said he was determined to succeed in life against all 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, I do 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 pay my school fees.
However with doggedness, perseverance and hard work I was able to find myself where I am today.
