The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has won the Twitter poll organised by Rema, the Afrobeats singer, on varsity to attend amid the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
On Monday, the ‘Calm Down’ crooner lamented that he hasn’t started school since he was admitted to study ‘Creative Arts’ at the Lagos-based varsity.
The singer thereafter pleaded with ASUU to call off its strike.
Reacting to Rema’s Twitter post, Bowen University in Iwo, Osun state had openly invited the singer to enroll in its institution.
While Bowen said the ‘Bounce’ singer would not be delayed by ASUU if he becomes its student, UNILAG advised the youngster not to leave its institution.
Caught in between the two varsities, the 21-year-old singer on Tuesday put up a Twitter poll to seek the opinions of his fans.
After 24 hours, the Twitter poll accrued 118, 365 votes, and saw UNILAG rake in 63.2% of the votes to Bowen’s 36.8%.

“Okay! UNILAG and BOWEN University. I want the youths to pick for me, I will attend the one with the highest votes, let’s vote!” he had written.
In January, the Mavin Records singer had disclosed that his decision to return to school was based on his mother’s insistence that he should get a degree.
