According to the Law graduate, the uncle flogged him because he failed Physics and did not pass Mathematics exceptionally at the end of the term.

He narrated the incident while appearing as a guest on the ’90s Baby’ podcast, not forgetting to add that he went out to welcome the uncle when he arrived.

Layi shared; “I had uncles that flogged me. I had one that travelled to flog me. He travelled for two hours from Ibadan to Oshogbo to flog me.

“At the time, I passed biology, chemistry but I failed physics. And I had stronger subjects in the art department so it was recommended that I did art. So my mum was upset I wasn’t taking school seriously.

“She called one of my uncles, he said don’t worry I’ll be in Oshogbo tomorrow. I was the one that opened the gate for him, assisted him to carry his luggage from his car.

“And he sat down, drank water and said bring your report card. He went through all the courses and said, ‘You failed physics, you didn’t do well in mathematics. Lie down there.’ And I knew what my fate was then.”
