A woman with the Twitter handle @Bettyaana has said that she gave up a scholarship to study at the University of Warwick because a Nigerian pastor in Potters House church advised her against it

According to her, the clergyman told her it is not the "will of God". The woman said she does not think she would ever be able to get over making such a decision.

In a subsequent tweet, the lady said that she would later reveal the pastor's identity as she called the church's name, Potters House.

The pained woman replied to people calling her dumb, telling them no dumb person ever gets such an academic offer to a prestigious university as Warwick.

She said that after she dropped out, she had to leave the church later to go complete her degree.

Some of the people that commented on her post came with mixed feelings. While many felt sorry for her, others wondered why she would take such an ill-informed decision.

Below are some of the responses:

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that luck smiled on an 11-year-old Nigerian kid, Anthony Mmesoma Madu, who went viral after the clip showing him dancing ballet in the rain surfaced online.

If nothing comes after the global attention he seized online and the scholarship he got from Fade Ogunro, a Nigerian woman, he would still have been tagged successful.

However, Anthony's new fame became one that keeps bringing good tidings. An American TV station NBC did an exclusive on him as they talked about his new fortune.

Not only that, they also reviewed big names in the American entertainment industry like Viola Davies who commented on his viral video when it hit the internet.

On the TV show, it was revealed that Madu was given a scholarship into the American Ballet Theatre.

When he was asked how ballet dancing makes him feel, he said: "It makes me feel strong and happy when I am dancing."
