Nicholas Uzoka served levels when he handed in his thesis. Instead of a boring paper, the student, who goes by the stage name Zoka the Author, released an album containing 21 tracks.
The songs made up his 10 000-word thesis and Uzoka's professors were so impressed, they passed him with a First, which is in England equivalent to graduating Cum Laude.
Briefly.co.za learned Uzoka recently graduated from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England.
According to News24, the young man's tracks consisted of nine rap songs and 12 poems.
“I am a rapper, that’s my best form of artistic expression and the uni was kind enough to allow me to accommodate my particular style of poetry into their course,” the 22-year-old said.
His thesis was titled The First Stone: An Oratorio, and he used a relationship with a woman to explore his relationship with God, the publication added.
Taking to social media last week, Uzoka shared several photos of his graduation day and he gushed about his journey.
"Quick shoutout to everyone who made today, and my university experience as a whole, the amazing thing it was. I've made a lot of mistakes and a lot of memories, but its been an absolute pleasure to grow here, and have all of you amazing people grow with me. More life and blessings to each and every single one of you, I wish you all the best," he wrote on Instagram.
