Veteran rapper Naetochukwu Chikwe, aka Naeto C, is one of the few veterans in the Nigerian music industry who is not only talented but also learned. Naeto, who was born in Houston, Texas bagged an MSc in Energy Studies at the University of Dundee in Scotland, in 2010.
Naeto who suspended his music career at a time it was really booming, to pursue is Masters said doing that was not an easy decision.
It was a very big and difficult decision for me to make, but I felt it was the right decision. Leaving Nigeria at that time with the magnitude of ground I had covered in my music and the popularity I had gained was a risk because it meant that I was going to forfeit a lot of opportunities like getting shows, possible endorsements and marketing myself and my music.
But when I weighed the options, I was convinced that going to school was the correct decision. I felt it would have a greater impact on the larger scheme of things, it would affect other people, especially those that look up to me as a role model. Moreover, my becoming a musician was just a chance thing and there was already a plan in place before the music came and furthering my studies was part of it.
