While in the house, Big Brother Naija season 6 stars, White Money and Angel said that they dropped out of school due to some personal reasons. No doubt, the duo have made great names for themselves. They did not allow their educational background to hinder them from becoming rich and popular. However, I still think they should consider going back to school, not minding their social status, considering how important education is. If they can make some sacrifices towards achieving this, it could be of great benefit to their career or future ambitions. The good news is that one can be educated at any age, it only takes a willing heart.

Sadly, some people believe that education is needed to secure a job. They also believe that one who is rich and famous should not worry about education. But I believe that education is a great asset. Its benefit cannot be ignored because it is essential to our lives. To prove this, here are some Nigerian celebrities who went back to school regardless of their high social status:
Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, enrolled for a law degree at the University of Abuja in 2015 and graduated in 2018. He was called to bar on September 15, 2020.

Also, here are some benefits of education:
1) It helps us to gain knowledge and also improve our confidence level. We can never know it all because learning is a continuous process. Trust me, no knowledge is a waste.
2)One's educational background might also affect his or her chances of winning some political positions in the country
3) It plays a great role in our career growth as well as personal growth. Education has no limit.
4) It also helps shape a better society to live in where citizens know their rights and are taught to obey laws.
