Nick Cannon didn't hear the end of the Drumline jokes throughout the weekend, after he announced his recent enrollment at Howard University on Saturday, [August 20]. The 35-year-old entertainer shared news of his matriculation via Instagram, posting a selfie taken by the entrance of the historic Black university.
"Just remember @NickCannon "You're on time if you're 5 minutes earlier, You're late if you're on time!" #OneBandOneSound PS - Congrats," tweeted Orlando Jones, pulling quotes from the 2002 film to congratulate his former castmate. Fans will recall that in the movie, Cannon played a freshman who joins the school band at an HBCU.
It is apparent that Nick has re-engaged his educational journey full-throttle, having since adorned his page with a series of adages about knowledge from the likes of Dr. T.P. Chia, Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Benjamin Franklin and Nelson Mandela. With his enrollment, he joins Stokely Carmichael, Toni Morrison, Thurgood Marshall and many other legendary artists and prominent social figures noted as Howard alumni. Good Job +Nick Cannon
