A junior secondary school student sitting for the creative and cultural art paper in National Examination Council failed a question because of her love for Wizkid, Instead of going for an obvious answer to a question asking who the king of Afrobeat music is, the student went for the raving artiste.
Many Wizkid fans said she chose the obvious answer as others applauded the exams board for setting such a relatable question.
Just how far could one’s love for an artiste go? A student took hers to the examination hall and let it drive her choice of an answer.
In a post on Tuesday, June 1, a man with the handle @BigMike_999 revealed that his younger sister went for Wizkid as the correct option to one of her creative and cultural art questions.

It is either Wizkid or nothing
The question asked who is the king of Afrobeat and had Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Michael Jackson, Goerge Benson, and Lagbaja as options.
@BigMike_999 said that his sister’s obsession with the Smile crooner made her fail the question. Many Nigerians flooded his comment section.
