Recall that Rema announced his admission to UNILAG via Twitter in January 2022.

According to the ‘Holiday‘ singer, his mother advised him to get a bachelor’s degree because it was important.

“What if I told you I was accepted to Unilag? Lol, Mom said I still needed to get a degree, sigh, see you guys in class!” He’d tweeted last year.
