One time A-list artiste in Nigeria, Abolore Adigun popularly known as 9ice, is back to school pursuing his ambition of being a lawyer. He disclosed this in an interview, adding that being a lawyer has always been his biggest dream.
The ‘Gongo Aso’ singer said that he is presently a student of Capella University, Minnesota, USA, studying Public Safety and Common Law.
See excerpts from the interview below:
Your decision to leave school wouldn’t have gone down well with your parents, how did they react to it and what was constantly coming to your mind back then?
It was not an easy decision to make. There were days that I had to live in the studio. Talking about my parents’ reaction, I had to lie for a while, pretended as if all was well. Before my parents knew I wasn’t in school, it was too late to complain because I was already on TVs, making money and rocking shows all around.
Would you consider going back to school someday?
I’m in school already, studying public safety and Common Law at Capella university. It is an online programme. I can’t think of any other course except law.
Would you trade your being famous for something else if you look at some of the bad side of fame that you have experienced over time?
Yes, I will love to trade fame with some silent life that does not arrogate too much attention to one, but it has got nothing to do with any bad experience. No matter what you do or who you are, there’s always a difficult time and life challenges that you can’t run away from. But I will really love to trade because I wish to be a lawyer. That has always been my dream.
