Nigerian Afrobeats singer and producer Bad Boy Timz has revealed how he almost dropped out of the University.
In a chat with Nandi Madida on Apple Music 1, Bad Boy Timz narrated how he almost dropped out of school just because he was passionate about his talent.
He said, “Every African parent wants to make sure their kids finish Uni, and I actually loved computers as well growing up so I thought ok, it’s not a bad idea to have a degree as well as the “talent.” I feel like it’s just God’s plan, because I almost dropped out. In 2020 I was in my third or fourth year of Uni already when I had my major breakout song, so it was really hard juggling schooling, recording, performing… it was a miracle, I won’t lie.”
Born Olorunyomi Oloruntimilehin, Bad Boy Timz rose to prominence with the release of the song “MJ,” and a follow-up remix which featured Nigeria singer Mayorkun.
