Why I went back to school – Baba Ijesha

Popular actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, has opened up on why he returned to school to get more education.

According to him, he didn’t take a break from acting but decided to concentrate on his studies. The actor said, “I am back in school, studying Theatre Arts at the University of Lagos. I didn’t want to be acting and schooling at the same time, because acting requires a lot of attention. However, I didn’t take a break from acting. I have been careful about the kind of movies I appear in. These days, I read comments online from fans complaining about the quality of our movies.

Being educated is the best investment one can make in life. Though education is not necessarily thkey to wealth, it is needed to be respected in our society. Education didn’t make me successful; my talent did. I went back to school to be able to enlighten myself and step up my game. I am in part four currently and it’s a five-year course.”
