Nigerian indigenous rapper, Reminisce has opened up on the importance of formal education with an encouragement to up and coming acts to get lettered.
Rapper, Remilekun Abdulkalid Safaru, aka Reminisce, has achieved quite a lot with his music career. He has a huge following and he is also a brand ambassador for some reputable companies.
However, the Kako bi Chicken crooner is not entirely happy; he wishes he was a graduate.
Speaking to Sunday Scoop about the music industry, he said,
“For anybody who wants to make a career out of music, you have to be sure that you are skilled and that it’s something that you can do sustainably; if not, go to school. Either ways, it is important to go to school, whether you go into full-time music or not. I actually regret not being a graduate.”
Speaking about how he has been able to shield his personal life from the public, Reminisce said,
“I always keep my private life private as I believe that I have the right to my privacy. There is a very big difference between Reminisce, the artiste, and Remi, the family man. I thank God because I’m comfortable and I don’t need validation on social media. I don’t have to put everything I own on social media so that people would know that I have arrived. Inasmuch as I’m not begging anybody for food, it’s all good. Instead of flaunting material things, I prefer to invest in people.”
Apart from music, what else does he like to do? The Angelina rapper said,
“I am interested in politics and I see myself becoming a politician in future. One is not going to do music forever and I need to plan my life properly. I also love to engage in business, so I see myself doing a lot of that too.”
