Popular actor, Odunlade Adekola, a few weeks ago had his convocation ceremony at the University of Lagos.
Even though some people have insinuated that the actor didn’t really attend classes and do assignments, Adekola maintained that he was steadfast as a student. He stated, “I attended classes regularly and I did everything I was required to do. My course mates can testify. I was not a stranger to any of my course mates because I usually attended classes. I was the one who made the decision to go to school. I knew what it entailed and I was ready to adhere to the rules. I can tell you that I worked hard for my certificate.”
Speaking on why he had an elaborate ceremony for the graduation ceremony of his Odunlade Adekola Film Production, Odunlade said, “It was not an elaborate event as such. Just like I had my convocation at UNILAG, was the same way the students at the academy did theirs. After learning for a period, it is only normal to celebrate your efforts. It is a wonderful thing to start a project and finish it; as you know, not everybody is able to do that.”
