Meet Jayde, the Nigerian Artist and Biochemist

In Nigeria, it has become a norm for all parents to send their children to school and ensure they get a BSc, MSc,  PhD e.t.c. This is mainly because they feel you become the most successful when you study hard in school.

Meanwhile, a lot of Nigerians have built a career for themselves even while studying, and end up not using their certificate at all.
Some many talented youths have explored their innate potentials in a bid to entertain Nigerians and the world at large.

One of such talented youths is Jayde Esther, a Music writer,  a singer, an entertainer and of course, a Biochemist.
