I Wanted To Be A Hair Stylist After I Graduated From University – Singer TY Bello

Veteran Nigerian singer and photographer, Toyin Sokefun-Bello, popularly known as TY Bello, has said she attended a tertiary institution to please her mother.

Bello stated this during an interview on the latest episode of I Said What I Said podcast, co-hosted by FK and Jola.

The ‘Land is Green’ crooner disclosed that she began photography and music almost at the same time.

She explained that her plan was to become a “big hairstylist” after graduation, adding that she has always been creative as far back as she can remember.

Bello said, “I have been writing songs since I was 8, 9, 10. I started music and photography [professionally] right at the same time.

“After university, when everyone in my class knew where they wanted to work. And I had no such dream. I was very confused.

“University was that period where I thought, ‘Okay, let me go to school to make my mum happy. Then I was going to graduate to be a big hairstylist.’ I thought that was my future.

“When it came to NYSC and everybody asked where to be posted to, I asked to be posted to the south. I was like, what do I do? And I think that was the major turning point where I realised that I had to be posted to phototech because I just started photography.
