I Failed JAMB Five Time Before Turning To Music-Mavin Record Act, Crayon Says




Fast-rising musician, Crayon, has revealed that he wrote and failed the Joint Admission and Matriculation (JAMB) Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) five times before settling for music.

The Mavin Record act stated this during an interview with Channels Television’s Rubbin’ Minds on Sunday, August 28.

Detailing his struggles to gain admission to a tertiary institution before delving into music, Crayon revealed that his failed attempts to get into a university were not his fault.

He said;

“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.”
