Chinko Ekun, the rapper, says he doesn’t consider education the yardstick to measure success.


The music star spoke about making a fortune out of learned skills rather than school-imbued literacy.

He argued that a person can acquire the exposure it takes to thrive by keeping abreast of emerging technology.

The rapper noted that more young people need to be taught that they can make a decent living through talent and acquired skills in such things as sports outside an institutionalised learning environment.


“Education no be scam. But it ain’t the yardstick to success. Two ways to interpret or decipher,” the rapper wrote.

“A child needs to be learned to catch up with technology and how the world is evolving.

“A child should be taught that a living can be made via sports, skills, talents, and more.


“The way you are learning how to use the features of your social media, also take time to learn how to compose a well-constructed email.


“This would help to lay a complaint officially whenever you have one Booom! Wait for a reply and follow up.”

Chinko Ekun is a Law graduate from OAU. He started developing a passion for music at the age of 7.

During his first year at the university, he picked up an interest in rap music.
