Sensational rap star, Zlatan Ibile, has taken to his page on social media with an opinion that has sparked different reactions from his fans and followers.
Zlatan in his post also submitted that having a certificate does not in any way guarantee a means of steady income.
Check out the post below:
A follower who seemed to disagree with the rapper responded to his tweet saying:
"A lot of people nowadays give little importance to education, they believe making money is more important than getting educated but that's wrong. Education is will take u places wealth can't take u, knowledge is power. A knowledgeable person is better than a rich! illiterate."
Also taking up the rapper’s position, another follower wrote:
"Brother @Zlatan_Ibile with all modesty education is basically to get u civilized and equipped not necessarily to get u a job or bag you with money, but if you are lucky to get a good job after school still kudos, pls stop misleading ppl that skul is for money or necessarily 4 job."
Another follower cautioned the rapper against discouraging young people to get an education. He wrote:
"You gain so many things in school, in fact, it's a school that made you famous, pls don't come and tell us that the knowledge you gain in school isn't useful to you or your career. And don't discourage others from getting their certificate too. Wetin u go gain, if u no go school."
