According to Olasubomi, his first-class degree didn't come somewhat as a surprise to him because he knew he was going to achieve it before even gaining admission into Bowen.
In his words:
"Someone asked me when did you know you were going to hit a first class. I answered before I entered Bowen. So when I hit a rewarding 4.80 in my first semester I told myself it was going to be a smooth ride..."
On why he stated that he knew his result would be a first-class before entering the university, Olopade told Legit.ng that it is a mentality thing and not a statement of pride.

"It's just a mentality thing. I was the best art student in my art subjects in secondary school. I was just confident in my abilities and my help in God. When I was about 10 I gave a televised spoken words speech at Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel) founders anniversary saying the greatest battle a person would face is in the mind.
"I have stuck to that ever since, always believing I could achieve whatever I set my heart to. So it's not a pride thing. It's just a mentality thing!"
