Samuel Perry, the Nigerian comedian and actor, popularly known as Broda Shaggi, recently revealed that he almost dropped out of the University of Lagos because of an international opportunity.
In a new interview on Thursday, the actor narrated his ordeal and how he made a U-turn to continue with his university education.
“When I was in year two, I wanted to drop out,” Broda Shaggi said.
Revealing the reason, he said, “There was this theatre troop from Abeokuta. They said they needed dancers in Russia. So I went to Abeokuta and from Abeokuta, we went to Ife. We rehearsed, did everything, and were ready for the performance. It was a carnival in Russia.”
Broda Shaggi noted that the 12-man dance group went to the embassy for their visa but he was the only one who was successful during the application.
“Out of the 12 people, I was the only one given the visa and I can’t travel alone because it’s a troop. I can’t go there alone,” Broda Shaggi said.

He continued, “I was very happy. I thought that was the moment my story was going to change because I was going abroad. I had already left school.
“I didn’t go to school for almost two weeks. I was rehearsing and dancing, so I forgot about school. But it didn’t happen because I couldn’t travel alone. So I was broken. I had to go back to school.”
