Korede Bello goes Back to School – Find out what he’s studying!



Korede Bello-HND Matriculation at Nigerian Institute of Journalism-BellaNaija-3 Although he became a ‘mega superstar’ this year, clinching a telecoms brand endorsement and releasing one of 2015’s biggest hits in Nigeria – GodWin, Korede Bello is going back to school!

The Mavin Records musician just matriculated for the Higher National Diploma (HND) at the Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ).

We did a little digging, and according to the Institute’s website, their only HND program is for Mass Communication, and we bet Korede will take the part-time route because of his busy performance schedule.

This move will definitely encourage his young fans AKA #Bellovers to stay in school!

Here are photos from the matriculation today –

      Aunty/Brother, sip no more. According to his biography, He was born on 29th Feb(Leap year things) so he’s among those people that add plus one to their age every 4years. Lol

    Yh he is 19. I’ve met him in person so it is obvious he is really young and the dude is short ehn. Former pictures of when he was still a teenager (technically, he is still one but you know when he was 15/16) and upcoming are from recent years too.

    Wow! am actually baffled he is going back to school in Nigeria, with his superstar status, most artist would have gone abroad to school. Korede Bello is indeed a true Nigerian. Kudos bro……. more grease to your elbow………………….

      Zack, Agbabiaka and Timi, this asslicking wont get y’al nowhere.
      And Zack, – you for lying about him attending classes regularly.
      You old – should be ashamed of yourselves. Voltrons of the universe.
      And work on your bad English. I dont wanna be ashamed to associate myself with the school.
      Bella, this is one badly composed piece of shit. Your writers can do better. WTF?!

With all respect, please be FACTUAL when posting your news especially gossip about Korede Bello. Please always get real thing before posting. Thank you.
