Below is a list of Top 10 Nigerian Celebrities That Never Had A University Degree:
1. Genevieve Nnaji: Genevieve Nnaji is a very intelligent woman and with her good command of English, you wouldn't know that she didn’t acquire a University Degree, even several years after saying that she would go back to school. She’s been able to amass wealth with her acting career. Genevieve Nnaji is considered to be one of the best-paid actresses in Nollywood.
2. Wizkid: Wizkid dropped out of Lead City University in his second year and at that time, nobody thought it was a bad idea considering the money was swimming in.
Anyways, Wizkid still has ambition to go to school as he seems to hold it in high esteem.
3. D’banj: Dbanj is one of the leading musicians in Africa. And we all remember his split from the Mohit all stars group.
D’banj dropped out of school in his 3rd year in Mechanical Engineering. Plans to continue his studies as a mechanical engineer in London were derailed when he arrived in the UK in 2001, and met Don Jazzy who was trying to make it as a songwriter and producer.
4. Ramsey Nouah: Nouah was born in Edo State. He grew up in Surulere, Lagos, where he attended Atara Primary School and Community Grammar School.
He obtained a diploma at the University of Lagos, after which he pursued a career in acting. Although he revealed in an interview that he didn’t get a university degree, Ramsey’s entire career is a huge success.
5. Tuface Idibia: Innocent Idibia is nationally and internationally known for his musical success and needs no introduction. Tuface as he’s popularly called attended Saint Gabriel’s Secondary School in Makurdi, Benue State. He enrolled at Institute of Management & Technology, Enugu (IMT), where he did his preliminary National Diploma course in business administration and management.
While attending IMT, he performed at school organised shows and parties. He eventually dropped out to pursue his music career. He has been honoured with several honorary degrees due to his developmental works in the society.
