Angel Smith opens up on why she dropped out of university after two weeks

Former Big Brother Naija season 6 housemate Angel Smith has opened up about her time at the University of Lagos.

The BBNaija actress said she was only there for two weeks before departing owing to a sxxual assault encounter.

On Friday, May 20, Angel revealed this information in an interview with Taymesan.

She said:

“I was in UNILAG for only two weeks. I struggled so much for those two weeks because when I got into UNILAG was my first sxxual assault experience.

After that experience happened, I can remember just moving through it and pretending like it never happened.

It affected my school life so much. I always blamed it on not knowing what to do in UNILAG when actually, I’ve always been fully aware of what I wanted to do.”

Angel explained that she had lived with her grandmother and that, despite her desire to be a doctor, she had abandoned the notion and focused on English, winning many Spelling Bees and improving her writing skills.

As she puts it:

“I knew what I wanted to do but I didn’t just do that because I had experienced something so traumatic and I didn’t speak to anybody about it, especially not my granny because I had so much shame

Nobody knew I was out of school until my mum had asked and I was like, ‘let me finally be out with it’.

“When I told her that and she asked me why, I obviously did not tell her what happened. I just told her I didn’t think I was doing the right course.

“Then she enrolled me in a foundational programme in the UK, which I dropped out from too.”

Angel claims she dropped out of school because she couldn’t afford it at the time.
