Best known for his hit track “Who is your Guy?” released in November 2022, Spyro engaged in a discussion with university staff and management about the importance of nurturing innate talents alongside formal education.

Reflecting on his own journey, Spyro shared how he diverted from his father’s desire for him to study Architecture to pursue his passion in the English Department, which ultimately paved the way for his music career.

“UI made me hardworking because there was no shortcut to success in those days, you had to read and read,” Spyro emphasized, highlighting the value of diligence instilled during his time at the University of Ibadan.

Professor Olapegba, also the Director overseeing the Office of Alumni Relations, emphasized the significance of alumni engagement, describing them as the University’s most potent force.
