Musician Pia Pounds wants to up her academic credentials.
The Tupate hitmaker has revealed in an interview that she intends to enroll for Masters’s Degree in Business Administration. The singer currently holds a degree in the same field.
Not long ago, she said she had her sights on doing entertainment law to fill the scarcity in the industry. Whether she can juggle law and a master’s journey is something we’ll keep tabs on.
She is said to have suffered a number of retakes during her pursuit of a degree at the International University of East Africa.
If she manages to bag the Masters’s Degree, she will most likely be the most educated artist in Uganda.
