Rema complains about ASUU strike
The popular Nigerian singer had sparked reactions on social media after he took to Twitter with a plea.
In January, Rema joyfully announced that he gained admission into the University of Lagos (UNILAG), but since the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) embarked on a strike over two months ago, the singer has been stuck at home.
He lamented over the fact that he has not started school since he made the announcement.
