NIGERIAN-born teenager Tamilore Awolesi has been offered scholarships by seven US Ivy League universities after emerging as the top student at Hertfordshire’s Haberdashers Aske’s Boys’ School in Elstree.



Teenager Tamilore will now be studying at Stanford University in the US after receiving a set scholarships from several institutions. Apart from Stanford, other citadels of learning that offered him scholarships included Princeton University, Columbia University, Dartmouth College and Brown University.




Most notably, he was named a John Jay Scholar at Columbia, a distinction given to only 30 students out of 2,100 students offered places in 2019. A combination of his excellent academics, extra-curricular activities and impressive essays earned him the offers these offers.



A saxophonist and vocalist, Tamilore was also offered a scholarship to Berklee College of Music, Boston for an undergraduate degree in Jazz Studies following a successful audition and interview. He currently attends the Royal Academy of Music Saturday Jazz Programme in London and is involved in his school’s big band and jazz ensembles.



Tamilore said: “I am so excited and really looking forward to starting at a prestigious and renowned university such as Stanford. I am looking forward to joining the Nigerian Students Association, the Black Students Union, being part of the thriving Stanford jazz community and making the most of the entrepreneurial and academic possibilities available to me at Stanford.



“I am grateful to God for this opportunity to study in the US, which has been a dream of mine since Year 9. I encourage all young people to dream big, put in the work and ignore the haters.”



Passionate about representation in the black community, he is the founder and chair of Black Head Students Network which held its inaugural event, hosted by Coutts, titled A World of Possibilities, for 60 black students from 30 different schools. He also introduced his school’s very first celebration of Black History Month and founded it’s African Caribbean Society, where he is also chair.

I encountered an experience on my way from church yersterday evening.
As my husband wanted to cut into the Sabo Yaba road opposite Queens College, a Danfo driver as we usually call them cut the corner driving in speed, in fact if not for the grace of God, we would have had an head-on collision. When we drove into the road, there was traffic and we wondered why. Suddenly, before staying long there, my husband quickly averted the steering and ahead we saw a gathering at the front a few distance away from us, the danfo driver hit a napep tricycle and affected some passengers. He was on the run. The sight made me lament when Nigeria is going to change. No traffic officers to ensure people are driving in obedience to speed limits.
The reason I recounted this experience is because of the lucky boy who has been freed from the wahala of Nigeria. There was another incident where some guys saw their friend drowning in a pool in University of Abuja but rather than help him, they monitored his death because they were envious of him. For how long do we want to keep up with a failing system like ours.
The best is what is happening to the guy right now. I think due to our system, its better we tell the world that we've got the brains even if they do change their names, their heritage is still going to and will always be traced back to Nigeria.
Whenever my husband is driving on the road, and he does speed, I usually tell him that I trust his driving skills but not other drivers who can cause accidents especially these our quack, untested drivers plying the road.

Please let us all be happy for the young lad who was given the Ivy league admission. If he were your family member, would you encourage him to stay back in Nigeria?

They are now your products but if they are with you its the average me and you that will frustrate them. Lets stop blaming some vague leadership. We make the leaders and we built a society that does not show compassion and only celebrates people with money. We only velevrate them because oyinbos discovered them

You have been trying to exonerate our leaders from the woes that had befallen Nigeria but deep in your mind you know that when the head is sane, the torso will benefit from its sanity.

I am not exonerating anyone. The leader is the reflection of how a society functions. If we are really sincere about justice and fairness we will never be comfortable with the kind of leaders we have.
This is the same country where if you are a leader and dont steal people will still call you mumu. Lets learn to be responsible too for the rot. The task of biilding a country is not the job of leader alone I tell you even if Obama was to be president of this dump he will still fail

You are almost right wink.Most time when positive changes are made down there, nobody notices except you bring it to the social media but let Buhari make the positive change,you and I will know something has hitten Nigerians positively.
As much as I agree with you on your point,I think when the leaders change positively,it will trickle down to the led.It is easier and advisable for the leader to change because they are few,powerful and have large followers who would be forced to emulate or be thrown on the sidewalk.
Look at Ghana,the change was spearheaded by Rawlings then.You would not believe that Ghana is the only country in Africa that manufactures vehicles from ground to finish and recognised by OICA.

Excellent. Look at most societies. The so called developed countries. Change started from the bottom. Ghana you are talking of, yeah the change was made but is it sustainable? Between then and now what strides have they made? It seems they are regressing. You can force people to fall into line but if they are not convinced that what you are teaching them is to their benefit your efforts are just useless . This is a country where people cant keep a toilet clean. Is it leader that has to come and tell you the benefit of a clean toilet? Guy reason am now
