We all know that getting a first class degree especially in Nigerian universities is as hard as anything, and celebrities usually have a thing for dropping out of the universities to pursue their dream. Surprisingly, there are celebrities who were really eggheads during school days and stood out at the top of the class regardless. They did not just go to school to fulfill all righteousness, they actually put in work and graduated with a first class or a near first class. In this article, we are going to be looking at some of the Nigerian celebrities who have gotten a first class degree.
a). Marie Iwobi: this beautiful lady here is actually a sister to popular footballer Alex Iwobi. Now you might say her brother is wealthy, and she don’ t need to work that hard in school but well she did and graduated from the University of Leicester with a first class. That’ s impressive right?
b). Korede Bello: number two on my list is popular Nigerian singer koredo bello. Yes, he has the charming face and he is a crush to many ladies out there, but korede bello is definitely a smart head. He is one of the most successful artists, signed to the Mavins record label owned by Don jazzy. He studied at the Nigerian institute of journalism in Lagos, and he graduated with a distinction being the top 7 best graduating students out of 1340 students. That’ s insane right?
c). Adesua Etomi Wellington: a lot of you know Adesua as a well- established and highly talented actress, who is married to popular Nigerian singer Banky W. But what you may not know is that she graduated from the University of Wolverhampton, bagging a first class in drama and performing arts. No wonder she is such a talented actress.
d). Kizz Daniel: we all know kiss Daniel is the pretty faced talented singer, but guess what else comes with his pretty face? A near miss at a first class degree, given the fact that he studied engineering, one of the hardest subjects in the university system. Kudos to him.
e). Joy Solan: a lot of you may not know her, but she is actually the sister of popular Singer and record label owner Don jazzy. She graduated with a first class degree in film and TV production.
