While interviewed by Views Channel, 2face lays bare the reason why he decided to forget about his studies at the Institute of Management and Technology, (IMT) Enugu and face music squarely
He said “I got robbed sometime in school. All my audio cassettes that I recorded they took them. I was sad for like a year plus. I dropped out and I am like look I am not continuing this thing I am going to follow music.
“I actually confessed to my parents. I told them the truth that I am not going back to school. I am going to Lagos, Festac town. All this waka wey I dey talk so, na molue… staff, sometimes na fight we go fight. Them go pursue us from bus.”
‘Staff’ happens to be a popular slang in Lagos state, Nigeria used by public servants like policemen or members of the armed forces whenever they enter public transport so they would not pay their bus fare.
