Reactions Trail Singer Bella Shmurda’s Refusal to Return To School After LASU Request
Afro-pop singer Bella Shmurda is usually in the news for cringe-worthy reasons. If you recall, he was famously trolled for speaking ‘bad’ English at the Headies awards in February 2021.
The internet had a good laugh and some people suggested he returned to school to get his degree.
Barely a year after, fans of Afro-pop singer, Bella Shmurda have slammed him for refusing Lagos State University’s (LASU) offer for him to return to school.
HOW IT STARTED
He tweeted after some twitter users posted lyrics from his breakout track Vision 2020 –
Mama call me say, “Chinedu is balling”
What are you doing, son you’re dulling
Four years in LASU is really nothing
Better get that money, son we’re starving
Omotena tell me say she don get belle
Mame, papa must to no know hear
I’ve been thinking oh, I’ve been thinking oh
Saying he probably would still be broke if he had stayed in school. One twitter user even hinted that according to the lyrics above, Bella Shmurda’s mum subtly mounted pressure on him to make it quick and likened his dropping out to face music to the ‘get rich quick’ craze that has driven a lot of Nigerian youth to committing several dastardly acts that including physically harming their loved ones for ephemeral wealth.
This caught the attention of the singer’s school, Lagos State University, and they reached out to him to come and complete his degree program.
BELLA SHMURDA’S RESPONSE
After the varsity reached out, the ‘Cash app’ singer via his reply to varsity hinted that he isn’t returning to the school.
THE FANS’ TAKE
From his recent tweets, it is clear Bella Shmurda has no intention of returning to the University anytime soon.
His statement and reaction elicited condemnatory replies from fans
@Pheebeskimani: It won’t hurt to get the degree now that they’re willingly offering it to him…
@Adeolutomide: If I were him, I will take the advice. They didn’t plead with him; they gave him the best advice.

In a series of tweets, the singer, who recently turned 26 had revealed that he was born in the early hours of the morning around 3 am, as narrated to him by his mother.
The Dangbana Republik artiste said his mum told him that labour was quite hard for her.
According to him, the incessant bleating of a goat at the backyard of the traditional hospital in Ikorodu where his pregnant mother had visited, made his birth seamless.
