Why I dumped Music for Mass Communication – Korede Bello
Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter Oluwakorede Bello has disclosed why he dumped his successful music career to pursue a degree in mass communication.

But at the peak of his career, the singer returned to school to pursue a degree in mass communication.
In a recent interview with The New Telegraph, the singer opened up about how he has been able to cope with the mental health struggles that come with being in the entertainment industry, as well as his decision to leave his music career and study mass communication.

Speaking further, he said: “Writing a headline is similar to writing a chorus." They both have to be catchy and evoke some emotional reaction. Music and news are both languages of emotional connection. So, it is a good thing to be educated about your passion. "I have observed that you can be the most famous or richest person on earth and still be unhappy or unsatisfied on the inside.”
