Oxlade: Why I Dropped Out of University In My Final Year

Sensational Nigerian singer, Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, popularly known as Oxlade, has revealed why he abandoned his university degree programme in his final year.

The ‘Ku Lo Sa’ crooner said he was studying at Lagos State University, LASU, but dropped out in his final year because some cultists were after his life.

He said the cultists were pressuring him to join their gang but he declined and fled the campus.

He disclosed this in the latest episode of the Tea With Tay podcast, hosted by actor, Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, aka Taymesan.

Oxlade said, “During my university days, I was always in the church reading bible and books. Then I dropped out in my final year.

“I’ve never said this before. I dropped out when some boy were trying to make me join gang. One day, my grandma called me asking where I am. I said I was in campus and she said I should start coming to our family home in Ibadan.

“I went to Ibadan. That day, those cultists, they almost killed my roommates. That’s why I appreciate my grandma’s importance in my life. Truly, there’s God. And I’m saying this with my full chest, God has saved me countless times.”
