I was rejected: Octopizzo’s moving journey to the University of Pennsylvania
If you believe all things are possible then Octopizzo’s new conquest is proof enough. His latest conquest? Higher education.
After being turned down by tons of universities, the ‘Noma Ni’ rapper can finally call himself a college student after he was admitted to the University of Pennsylvania where he is taking his undergraduate.
“Almost done with school then Start my Masters. Never thought I’d love Uni after every Uni turned me down till @Penn accepted my application. #SmartyPants #ivyLeague #Upenn #NomaNi lazma ni upgrade Akili,’’ he tweeted.
In his own words, Namba Nane is out to conquer, “Nobody cares about your story until you WIN! So I keep winning.’’
The artist who’s still riding high with his album ‘Next Year’, grew up in Kibera and is constantly urging young people to stop violence as a youth ambassador.
