Months after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, with papers in social impact strategy, Rapper Octopizzo has enrolled to Harvard University for yet another course.
Speaking to Mzazi Willy Tuva, Henry Ohanga (real names) explained that he joined Harvard in February to pursue a course in Leadership, Organizing and Action.
“Nilianza February, so ndo one of the reasons nimekuwa chini ya maji, kusoma ni ngumu manze, sai inafanya niheshimu wasee wako University. Sai niko Havard Univesity, hizi ni shule nilikuwa naona tu kwa TV, though huko ni ngumu jo si kama place nilikuwa last year huko Pennsylvania. Yaani nilitaka mtoi wangu to understand kuwa unaeza toka Kibera na still ukafika Harvard” said Octopizzo.
