"You worked hard doing what? This is a problem of accountability. You went on a podcast to say all you said, which is your right to do, and you thought there will be no consequences? It is important you also say the name of the lecturers who slept with you so they can also be held accountable. You shouldn’t have to go down alone. And by the way, you don’t need the degree. You said you are a certified ashawo. What’s the use of a degree that you have never used. You also said school is scam in your interview. What are you crying for?"
