However, he was able to surmount his grief and graduate with flying colors, bagging a first class degree in microbiology from university of Ilorin.

Oladunjoye wrote on Twitter …

“From 3.67 to 4.99 CGPA. Wasn’t in my right frame of mind that second semester. Lost my father few days to exam. I just thought to myself; if I eventually dropout due to financial reasons, I must do so in honor (to my father). Few years later, I graduated with a First Class Honors.”
