One of Nigeria’s, most celebrated comedians Ayo Makun recently narrated why it took him 9 years to wrap up his Bachelor Degree program at the Delta State University. According to the father of one, the death of his parents also contributed to the delay.
Here is what the Entertainer told Gold Myne TV
“In December 1999 when my dad passed on, it was difficult to take over his position as the first son. It became even more difficult when my mum decided to join him in no time.
Embracing the responsibilities of taking care of my four sisters and two baby brothers wasn’t the best message to preach to a waiting landlord whose rent must be paid in due time.
The combination of being a big brother and father came with a price that kept me in Delta State University for nine years as a student.”
Apart from the non-negotiable Christian upbringing from my parents, my dad always drilled me, and made me tough. He taught me how to be a strong independent young man and how to carry my siblings along as a leader of purpose. It wasn’t an easy journey for me or any of my younger ones, as we all struggled together, but hope was like the sun, which casts the shadows of our burden behind us.
“Humility is the true key to succeed in life. Eradicate every form of arrogance and self-indulging trap that will halt your blessings from God. See you at the top.”
