GHEN GHEN: KISS DANIEL CLAIMS AT 13YEARS HE WAS ADMITTED INTO THE UNIVERSITY
”Laye” singer Kiss Daniel has drawn attention to his age when he granted an interview recently where he claimed that
he graduated with a 4.32GPA in ‘Water Engineering’ from the Federal Univeristy of Agriculture, Abeokuta, in 2013, putting his age, as at the time of graduation, at 18.
Kiss Daniel’s records show’s that he is really 21.
The whole controversy started when a Twitter user @Zubairthedream who shared the newspaper clipping, pointed out pertinent facts.
“How old are you, really? @iamkissdaniel,” the Twitter user asked, and went ahead to list out these:
“1. Engineering is a 5 year course.
2. Graduated in 2013
3. 21 last week.”
However, there are fans of the singer who are trying so hard to defend him. But, as at 2014, the minimum age set by the examination body for students eligible to write JAMB was 16.
And so, the question thrown up by Nigerians is if the singer lied about his age, or if he didn’t attend the University.
