Nigerian singer, Simi, like other Nigerian celebrities, has faulted the current educational system being practiced in the country which she believes has killed off lots of talents.
She claims that lots of talents are dying because the country has made many believe that one can only attain success if he or she follows a certain path. However, she feels the blame shouldn’t fall solely on incompetent teachers.
She tweeted: ‘I feel like the current method of education is faulty. Ppl have different strengths – but we were raised to believe only certain talents or career paths can bring you success. So we see a lot of potential and ideas dying cos they were born to the right ppl in the wrong climate.’ This comes in the wake of JAMB approving 160 as cut-off mark for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The decision was made at a meeting held in Osun State, Southwest Nigeria
