Alaba has broke silence few days ago and spoke on the reason for his action in an interview with Nigerian Tribune.

The LAUTECH graduate added that he has an entertaining skill which won him an award during his youth service but he cannot monetize it now because he is not able to raise a capital to start his own outfit.

According to Alaba, his father confronted him about his ambition and said he ought to be reaping his labour on him already. On hearing that, the young man to burst into tears.

He stated that he wanted his school to give him all the school fees he had spent in exchange for the “useless” certificate so he can use money to do something tangible.
