R&B singer Darey Art Alade is still on his journey down memory lane.
Yesterday (October 8), Darey visited his former secondary school CMS Grammar School.
“Lives are in the making here, hearts are in the waking here, mighty undertaking here, up and on!" These words couldn't ring any truer for those who know what I'm talking about! Founded in 1859 (the oldest secondary school in West Africa), my alma mater, the great C.M.S Grammar School has groomed and churned out so many great Nigerians from its first principal Babington Macaulay (Herbert Macaulay's father) to alumni such as legendary professor of music (and my uncle) Akin Euba, Accountant par excellence Akintola Williams, Babs Fafunwa, Emeka Ojukwu, Ernest Shonekan, TOS Benson, Fela Sowande, Henry Adefope, Art Alade, Niyi Adebayo, Ola Vincent (CBN Governor), Folarin Coker, 9ice to mention a few...and of course my humble self. Our school song inspired us to become global thinkers even in the harshest of conditions. #WayBackWhen the missionaries really injected quality and quantitative education in Nigeria...and the bond of brotherhood! These formed our solid foundation as grammarians and ability to forge ahead in life! Up school!!!” wrote Darey about his alma mater.
Darey also visited the University of Lagos which he attended.
“Caught up with my old lecturer yesterday at Unilag when I stopped by for a surprise visit to the faculty of arts where I bagged my BA in Music...Dr Mereni hasn't changed one bit” he wrote about his experience.
On October 7, Darey visited his former childhood home and also wrote about the experience.
