Sensational Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Crayon has disclosed that he wrote the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exams for five years.
Crayon made this known while speaking in an interview, on Rubbin’Minds with the host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels TV.
Crayon intimated that he ventured into music after attempts to further his education proved futile.
“It has been amazing and beautiful to see because I have been working over the years and now, I am now finally getting the recognition that I deserve.
“So, it (recognition) is beautiful to see – among my fans, team, and everybody that knows me personally.
“I started making music like 2016 officially. I wasn’t in school then but trying to get into the university. I wrote JAMB five times.”
For the first two times, I failed; the rest three times, I passed. I kept going to the school to lay complaints and ask: ‘What’s up?’ It (gaining admission) wasn’t just happening for me. I feel like it was God’s way of redirecting me.
“Even before I started making music, I used to be a footballer. I like football a lot – I used to play football, go to training, academies, and stuff like that.”
