Popular Nigerian comedian and actor, Samuel Perry, better known as Broda Shaggi, has revealed how he almost dropped out of the university.
In an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, the comic actor spoke on how he almost waved his university education goodbye because of an international opportunity.
According to him, he was in his second year in school when the opportunity came, adding that he got disappointed and could not continue with the trip which made him go back to school.
“When I was in year two, I wanted to drop out. 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,” he said
