Nigerian rap star, Reminisce, regrets not being a graduate despite having a buoyant career in music along with a number of endorsement deals.
‘For anybody who wants to make a career out of music, you have to be sure that you are skilled and that it’s something that you can [sustain]; if not, go to school.
‘Either ways, it is important to go to school, whether you go into full-time music or not. I actually regret not being a graduate.’
Alaga Ibile as he also calls himself, said in an interview with Punch, also talked about keeping his personal life out of the public eye and more.
‘I always keep my private life private as I believe that I have the right to my privacy.
‘There is a very big difference between Reminisce, the artiste, and Remi, the family man. I thank God because I’m comfortable and I don’t need validation on social media.
‘I don’t have to put everything I own on social media so that people would know that I have arrived.
‘Inasmuch as I’m not begging anybody for food, it’s all good. Instead of flaunting material things, I prefer to invest in people.’
The rapper also talked about considering a political career when he’s done with the music.
‘I am interested in politics and I see myself becoming a politician in future. One is not going to do music forever and I need to plan my life properly.
‘I also love to engage in business, so I see myself doing a lot of that too.’
