The fast-rising Nigerian singer, Charles Chibueze Chukwu better known as Crayon, has recounted his struggling days as a secondary school student that he was unable to pay school fees until he was about to write WASSCE.
The Mavin signee, who recently paid a visit to his former secondary school, narrated how paying his fees was a struggle as a secondary school student that he almost missed the West African Certificate Examination (WAEC).
The artiste is proud of how far he has come, he also eulogized himself as the only star the school has ever produced and prayed for more stars to emerge from the school.
A video he shared online, shows the moment he entered the school’s staff room and prostrated to his teachers. The artist was also seen performing for the kids, who were all overjoyed to have him there.
In his words: “So I went to my secondary sch that I graduated from “Treasure court college” to motivate and inspire every kid that if I can do it they can do it too, and it was so special and emotional for me cos omo I used to be regular debtor in sch, I was owing sch fees till my waec day crazy!
I remember my girl crying for me cos she thought I wouldn’t be able to write chemistry practical 😭 my mum came to pay last minute though, I remember I used to get whooped in class for sagging 💔😂 and now coming back to the school as the only star that the school has ever produced since the inception is an amazing feeling! I hope to see the school produce more stars in the nearest future on God amen!❤️🙏🏽” He captioned the video
