Nigerian comedian and actor, Samuel Perry popularly known as Broda Shaggi has spoken on how he almost gave up on his university education.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo on his show #WithChude, the funnyman spoke on how he almost waved his university education goodbye because of an international opportunity which surfaced at that point in time.
According to him, he was in his second year in school when the opportunity came adding that he got disappointed and couldn’t continue with the trip which made him go back to school.
“When I was in year two, I wanted to drop out. There was this theatre troop from Abeokuta. They said they needed dancers in Russia. So I went to Abeokuta and from Abeokuta, we went to Ife. We rehearsed, did everything, and were ready for the performance. It was a carnival in Russia.
Out of the 12 people, I was the only one given the visa and I can’t travel alone because it’s a troop. I can’t go there alone,”
I was very happy. I thought that was the moment my story was going to change because I was going abroad. I had already left school.
I didn’t go to school for almost two weeks. I was rehearsing and dancing, so I forgot about school. But it didn’t happen because I couldn’t travel alone. So I was broken. I had to go back to school.”
