Meanwhile, Legit.ng recalls reporting recently when popular Nigerian singer, Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, better known as Patoranking, opened up about why he couldn't have his tertiary education in Ghana.
Patoranking, during an interview on Hitz FM, revealed he gained admission to the University of Cape Coast but could not proceed because the fees for international students like himself were paid in dollars at that time.
The singer who said he was excited about the admission got a different response from his father when he broke the news to him via a phone call.
