"Your Education Does Not Guarantee You Success"

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde may not be a graduate; she may have not acquired all the degrees in the world, but she is unarguably one of the most successful actresses in Nigeria today and she has made it known that being educated does not necessarily guarantee success in life.

Omotola who is happily married, blessed with four lovely kids, is a successful business woman, a chief, a singer and philanthropist, made this comment at an event held recently in Lagos.

While addressing the gathering, she noted that although success is not compulsorily tied to education, it is advisable to be educated.

Hear her:

Education does not necessarily guarantee your success in life.

There are many layers to being famous or being a celebrity and education prepares us for these layers, so we can reach our full potential and be trusted with more responsibilities.

Social responsibility, as you can guess, is a lot of responsibility and expression.

Well said Omo-Sexy. But we still need education right?
