Why I pursued education at the expense of my music career – Korede Bello



Afrobeat singer, Oluwakorede Bello, has disclosed reasons he dumped his music career for education.

The ‘Godwin’ crooner who has been away from the industry for a while stated that he loves education.

He said his degree makes the same impact as his music career.

According to Korede, a good headline can be similar to writing choruses for a song. He said he needed to fulfill his passion for education.

Korede said he went into mass communication to learn how the human world and mind works.

He said, ““I love education, not so much traditional education, but I love to learn how the world works and how the human mind operates.

“So getting a degree in Mass Communication seemed congruent with my profession.

“Writing a headline is similar to writing a chorus. They both have to be catchy and evoke some emotional reaction. Music and news are both languages of emotional connection. So, it is a good thing to be educated on your passion.

“I have observed that you can be the most famous or richest person on earth and still be unhappy or unsatisfied on the inside.”

Korede had left to continue his studying at the peak of his career after Dorobucci and other projects that put him into the spotlight. He was being compared to his colleague, Reekado Banks, who was in the same company.

He got signed to Mavin Records and the members released their hit song ‘Dorobucci’ in 2014.
