Korede Bello has denied claims that he paid heavily to get his result Korede Bello has denied claims that he paid heavily to get his result, saying he got it through hardwork, commitment and sacrifice.

After report of him graduating with distinction from the Nigerian Institute of Journalism went rounds, there were reports on social media suggesting that the Mavin Record singer must have paid heavily to get his result.

Korede who graduated with a distinction in Mass Communication (HND) and was also awarded the best student in “Editorial Writing” by the institute reacted to the rumours in an Instagram post. He wrote:

I initially didn’t want to post this for many reasons but I was wrong on all counts. I’d be doing millions of young people and my peers a disservice by not boldly putting it out there that impossiblity is a myth; you can be Talented and Distinguished; Famous and Dignified; Celebrated and Educated ; that you can be a MEGA SUPER STAR with a MEGA SUPER VISION.
For this I am grateful to God.

The main reason I endured to the finish line was because I needed to push myself and also to be a light for a lot of young Nigerians who think you cannot be an established Artiste and still achieve academic excellence. I endured because #MyPeople needed a role model.

A few days before I got signed I was still looking for tuition fees, so I understand the experience that some of you go through. But just as HE came through for me , HE’ll come through for you.
No, it wasn’t easy but it was worth it. I was graced and I’m grateful.
And no, I didn’t buy my result but I paid for it through hardwork, commitment and sacrifice (time and music). You can too. I believe in you, I believe in us #DistinguishedNigerianYouths”
