Rumours trailed Korede Bello when he graduated from the school of journalism with a distinction, with many saying he bought it and did not attend most of his classes, hence he did not work for his result.
The promising artist has finally come out to debunk the rumours and encourage others to achieve excellence. On his Instagram page, he wrote:
“I initially didn’t want to post this for many reasons but I was wrong on all counts. I’d be doing millions of young people and my peers a disservice by not boldly putting it out there that impossiblity is a myth; you can be Talented and Distinguished; Famous and Dignified; Celebrated and Educated ; that you can be a MEGA SUPER STAR with a MEGA SUPER VISION.
For this I am grateful to God.
The main reason I endured to the finish line was because I needed to push myself and also to be a light for a lot of young Nigerians who think you cannot be an established Artiste and still achieve academic excellence. I endured because #MyPeople needed a role model.
A few days before I got signed I was still looking for tuition fees, so I understand the experience that some of you go through. But just as HE came through for me , HE’ll come through for you.
No, it wasn’t easy but it was worth it. I was graced and I’m grateful.
And no, k, commitment and sacrifice (time and music). You can too. I believe in you, I believe in us ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾 #DistinguishedNigerianYouths”
