Korede Bello says he wants to be an inspiration for Nigerian youths.
Mavin star, Korede Bello, has taken to Instagram to shut down rumours which says that he bought distinction from the Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ).
The singer who bagged a HND from the Institute with distinction says that he needed to be an inspiration to many youths. He wanted to be a prove that it is possible to be famous and also achieve academic excellence, he said. He also added that he didn’t but his grades but achieved it through hard work.
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, 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,I didn’t buy my result but I paid for it through hard work, commitment and sacrifice (time and music). You can too. I believe in you, I believe in us. #DistinguishedNigerianYouths. He said.
