How NASU strike once robbed me of opportunity to study in UK – Laycon


2020 BBNaija winner, Laycon; says the strike by the Non-Academic Staff of Universities (NASU) once denied him the opportunity to study in the United Kingdom.

The Nigerian rapper and songwriter reflected on key moments in his life during a recent interview with Accelerate TV.

Laycon said at the time, he was billed to travel to the varsity but did not go eventually as he couldn’t obtain his transcript which was an essential requirements to facilitate the process.

“There are lots of such moments for me. When I rejected admissions into different schools just because I wanted to go into the University of Lagos (UNILAG) is one,” he said.

“Also, when I got the opportunity to study in a university in Newcastle, UK but I couldn’t go because I did not get my transcript due to the fact NASU was on strike at the time.”

The reality TV star said losing his father was also a key moment in his life.

“The day I lost my dad was also another key moment for me. That day, my brother was supposed to go for BBNaija audition but he couldn’t because of my dad’s demise. If he had gone, the situation of things would have been different,” he added.

Since he won the show last year, Laycon has continued to pull the strings in the music landscape with several projects including his debut album.
