In a recent interview with Premium Times, Odunlade explained why he went back to school.
“I am a firm believer in knowledge acquisition so I always tell young actors, who want to enter our industry to get an education first,” he said.
“In fact, if you tell me you are interested in acting, I will ask you what you are doing presently. If you say you are currently in school, I will advise you to finish before you join the movie industry. Even if you are learning a trade, make sure you are certified before you join the movie industry.
If you are seeking to gain admission into the university, ensure you complete your studies first before you come into the movie industry. If you fail to do so, once you become a famous actor, it will be difficult for you to go back to school. Education is very important in anything you do in life.”
The actor wrote his final exams with his classmates in November 2017. Posting pictures of celebration with his classmates, Odunlade Adekola looked happy, wearing white a T-shirt which had signatures in markers, just like his classmates as it is customary of some graduating sets.
He posted a picture on his Instagram handle, bringing his works in the movie into it.
“Part one of the video of the signing out ceremony after the final exam today at UNILAG. Wow!! I love all my course mates. Are you in this video?” He had written
