The brand influencer whose foundation supports the education of children writes: “I failed Jamb, I’m not going to go into the University this year. It’s okay darling, you can always go some other time. But in the main time, get something to do. You can learn Coding How to design website How to do fix hair How to make clothes Just don’t be idle.”
