“So after I Failed last year , my mom and dads encouraged me to go back and my sister also begged me to go back when I’m ready, I lied to everyone that I can’t go back that I was not ready but I already registered lowkey and paid all the fees (God provided), I did that because I know they spent a lot the first time, so if I wanted to do this again I was determined to do it alone.
“I started classes in February it was hell, I leave house 4:30 am everyday to beat traffic, I was miserable but I persevered, it was so difficult, I was running my 7 business every day , I had to fly to The state capitals for my final exams! Everything went smoothly except one paper, I cried and prayed to God to take over! I came back to Lagos and acted normal told my parents I went for a course.
Harmonihie added that the day his result came out, he was hanging out with friends and was scared and had to put on the shower so that everyone will not hear him when he cried.
“The day results came out I was at @horlaroflagos exhibition shouting my favorite @asakemusic song (Palazzo) when I got the notification I begged @larinimagery to drive us home but my chest was in my mouth, I got home , my friend @dblacknerd made Ofada I ate , made sure anyone had slept , went to the bathroom , put on shower , put on the tap so that Incase I see my results and I failed I was going to cry and no one would hear and I saw that I passed ………. I paused , tears rolled down my eyes , it was around 1:35 am…… I screamed, I rolled , I praised till 4:30am.
