Contrary to popular misconception and false perceptions that Terri, 21 years old, dropped out of school to pursue a career in music full-time, he clears the air regarding his educational career and goals in an interview granted Punch NG.

Asked about how he got into music, Terri revealed he had always loved and admired music, citing Wizkid and Ice Prince as motivation and inspiration behind him wanting to find a career in music. He stated it was him and a friend (who also had an interest in music) that gathered money to record for their first studio session.

In time, he made a cover to a Wizkid song, the song went far, even meeting wizkid and his crew favourably to the extent he got a DM from one of Wizkid’s associate to link up, although he did not even know that link up would eventually end up being at Wizkid’s house, he honoured the invite and was wowed when he found out the location turned out to be Wizkid’s house.

They (Terri and Wizkid) would go on to build an organic relationship with eachother, leading to Terri being signed to the label, StarBoy Entertainment after recording the hit record – ‘Soco’ – with Wizkid but one thing would have to take a step back and be put on hold for the time being, that thing turned out to be Terri’s tertiary education.

Terri revealed to Punch NG that before the deal came in, he was pursuing admission into the University of Lagos (Unilag) to study Marine Insurance which he duly got accepted to study but put on hold for the sake of music. He says he did not drop out though.

Terri explains: “ I got admission into the University of Lagos to study Marine Insurance two years ago. But, schooling is on hold right now.” Explaining further, Terri adds: “I did not actually drop out of school. I only deferred my studies for a while and I would return to complete it. ”

Terri also revealed his parents are supportive of his choice and goal to put music first right now; Terri says he had to latch on the opportunity presented to him by one of the biggest artistes in Nigeria when it showed.
