He said “I got admission last year but I bailed on it because they were on strike” he continued, “I wanted to really like strategise how I was gonna do schooling and touring, part time school but the whole strike just made it look awkward, it was like a glitch so I just had to move on from it

He stated that he was going to pass on the admission because “life is crazy, life is fast”.

Rema when asked how his mother felt about his decision, he affirmed that though she wasn’t fine with it, she would eventually come to accept it.
