Barely a day after Nigerian rapper, Zlatan Ibile went viral while rocking NYSC uniform, supposedly after passing out from the scheme, the musician has taken to social media to pose a question to advocates of education.
Recall that the Zanku crooner in an Instagram post on Thursday, hinted that he has completed the mandatory one national youth service.
There was massive reactions to his post as people wanted to know the school he attended and his supposed Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
In a Twitter post on Friday, the singer asked his followers and fans to explain what he gained after going to school in Nigeria, getting a certificate, but being unable to use it to fend for himself.
He shared a photo of himself clad in the NYSC khaki and wrote;
”Wetin I gain if I go school, I get certificate but I no fit use Am chop”
See his post below:

Reacting, Nigerians highlighted some benefits of having an education, as one Twitter user stated that if he were educated, DJ Cuppy won’t have allegedly played him.

Street might earn you the money; but education will guide you about maximising it!
@Kingcollins4; Na wetin the country don turn to be that ooo. Who study agriculture Dey do POS, who study Biochemistry Dey do Yahoo
@Segzybi; You gain so many things in school, in fact it’s school that made you famous, pls don’t come and tell us that the knowledge you gain in school isn’t useful to you or career.
And don’t discourage others from getting their certificate too. Wetin u go gain, if u no go school.
@Its_Olayinnka; You people now make it seem like Graduates don’t succeed in life…
I’m happy for those who didn’t go to school yet made it…but this doesn’t imply that does who went to school won’t be wealthy…
Please step out of this school of thought!
@HeadWorld3; Na true talk sha I reason d talk wahala for person way no get hand work
@Jackfinsin; Nah becos you Don become Musical Star nah ehin make you dey tweet dis…. . If to say you no get option than to dey carry the certificate upandan for job… You go no howfar.
@IBMnationn; with all modesty education is basically to get u civilized and equipped not necessarily to get u a job or bag you with money, but if you are lucky to get a good job after school still kudos, pls stop misleading ppl that skul is for money or necessarily 4 job
