Crayon, a rapidly growing singer, revealed that before becoming famous, he took the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exam 5 times.
This information was disclosed by the aspiring musician in an interview with Rubbin’ Minds on August 28, 2022.
The Mavin star claimed that before becoming a well-known artist, he had been producing music since 2016 while he awaited acceptance into the institution.
He had to take the JAMB exam five times; the first two times, he failed; the other three times, he passed, but he was still unable to get an admission.
Crayon claimed that he believes that being denied entrance at the time was God’s method of rerouting his course.
He made this statement:
“It has been amazing and beautiful to see because I have been working over the years and now, I am now finally getting the recognition that I deserve.
“So, it (recognition) is beautiful to see – among my fans, team, and everybody that knows me personally.
“I started making music like 2016 officially. I wasn’t in school then but trying to get into the university. I wrote JAMB five times.
“For the first two times, I failed; the rest three times, I passed. I kept going to the school to lay complaints and ask: ‘What’s up?’ It (gaining admission) wasn’t just happening for me. I feel like it was God’s way of redirecting me.”
