The ace music artiste (Small doctor) while speaking on a Channels TV show, Rubbin Minds, revealed that he dropped out of UNILAG because he had no time and money to concentrate on his studies.
Small Doctor said, “I had recorded my first single, I had been gaining airplay in my hood back then. Agege, Ogba, all those places.
“But person no fit just stand dey believe say dem go dey call you for show.
“Those times if you’re privileged to be on the stage you go beg with the fact that they’ve been playing the song all the while. So I just needed to have some other things to just keep the ball going.
“Despite my early successes by going to school in my neighbourhood, I had to make a living, detailing his regular bus routes in Lagos.

“I shuttled that place for like three to four years. I moved to Oshodi to Mushin under bridge. So it was from Oshodi to Mushin, Mushin to Oshodi I spent like six to seven years.
“I decided to go to school (UNILAG) during that time but had carryovers and could not concentrate due to lack of funds and time so I dropped out,” he disclosed.
He, however, added that he has plans on returning to school to complete his education very soon.
