Before securing a position in the Nigerian music industry, Mavin Records signee, Crayon, reveals that he took the JAMB UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) five times.
Crayon who recounted how he struggled to gain admission to a tertiary institution before delving into music during an interview on Channels Television’s Rubbin’ Minds on Sunday August 28, added that his failed attempts to get into a university was not his fault.
“It has been amazing and beautiful to see because I have been working over the years and now, I am now finally getting the recognition that I deserve.
“So, it (recognition) is beautiful to see – among my fans, team, and everybody that knows me personally.
“I started making music like 2016 officially. I wasn’t in school then but trying to get into the university. I wrote JAMB five times.

“For the first two times, I failed; the rest three times, I passed. I kept going to the school to lay complaints and ask: ‘What’s up?’ It (gaining admission) wasn’t just happening for me,” he noted during the show. “I feel like it was God’s way of redirecting me.”
Crayon is one of the young voices of Mavin, and His case seems to be a bit different from Rema’s.
Recall that in January, Rema got an admission into the University of Lagos (UNILAG), to study creative arts.
The Mavins Records artiste in his tweet stated that his decision to further his studies was influenced by his mum’s desire that he should get a University degree.
“What if I told y’all I got an admission into UNILAG? Lol, Mom said I still need to get a degree sigh, oh well see you guys in class!” he wrote.
We however believe its not too late for Crayon to give university studies a try again.
