Nigerian singer, Simi has questioned the essence of formal education when people rarely practice or make use of what they studied in school.
The singer and wife of popular Nigerian singer, Adekunle Gold posed the question on her Instagram story yesterday.
The mother of one asked why people spend years and financial resources to attain formal education and end up acquiring knowledge they never use only to dump it at the end of the day for what they’re passionate about.
The new mom called the Nigerian educational system sh*t while buttressing her point that many people cannot remember what they were taught in school but have followed their passion which most of the time, is their talent.
According to her, there are several talents and potentials not tapped into, just because society feels such talents “are not prestigious” but lots of persons still end up doing something else after years of learning what they are not passionate about or interested in.
