Popular Nigerian singer Abolore Adigun, better known as 9ice, has disclosed that he wanted to be a lawyer before pursuing a music career.

9ice, in an interview with Iyabo Ojo, the actress, said he could not get into school to study law because he had multiple failures in the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) UTME.

He added that he came from a family that was not supportive of a music career.

“I have always wanted to be a lawyer until now,” he said.

“I spent almost six years JAMB go jam me, I go write another one. This one go say I no meet up cut off mark, I go do another one. Because the family I came out from, you cannot be a musician.”

When asked if he regretted not becoming a lawyer, he replied, “I cannot regret because I am still on it. I must do it, probably not to litigate at a firm, but I can be an entertainment lawyer.”

Last year, 9ice was honoured with a chieftaincy title in Ogun State. His chieftaincy title is “Amuludun of Ijofin Kingdom” which means the “Chief Entertainer of Ijofin Kingdom”.

The music star is renowned for his powerful use of the Yoruba language, proverbial lyrics, and unique delivery style.

He has received several awards, including MOBO, MTV Africa Music Award, and Nigeria Entertainment Award. Some of his most popular songs include “Little Money,” “Make Dem Talk,” and “Gongo Aso.”

He is the founder of the Alapomeji Ancestral Record label.

Rather than staying in the entertainment industry alone, 9ice explored the realm of politics when he ran for the office of House of Representatives and took a political appointment as a Special Adviser to the then-governor of Oyo State, Late Abiola Ajimobi, in 2015.
