Popular Nigerian comedian, Samuel Perry, better known as Broda Shaggi has revealed that he almost dropped out of the University of Lagos because of an international opportunity.
In an interview with broadcast journalist, Chude Jideonwo, the skit-maker narrated his ordeal and how he made a U-turn to continue with his university education.
Broda shaggi said;
“When I was in year two, I wanted to drop out.”
While revealing the reason, he said; 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.”
