Ayo makun spent 9 years at Delta State University.
Nigerian top comedian, Ayo Makun popularly known as AY, has narrated why he spent 9 years in the university even when the system is not meant to take more than four or five years to scale through. He spoke of why how the demise of his father and mother left him with a lot of responsibilities that he had to shoulder. All of that led to him finding it difficult to graduate from Delta State University on time. Read his words below.
” In December 1999 when my dad passed, It was difficult to take over his position as the first son. It became even more difficult when my mum decided to join him in no time.
“Embracing the reponsibilities of taking care of my four sisters and two baby brothers wasn’t the best message to preach to a waiting landlord whose rent must be paid in due time. The combination of being a big brother and father came with a price that kept me in Delta State University for 9 years as a student.”
