Some Nigerians have turned to social media to express their feelings about Kenny Ogungbe’s picture as he completed the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) training.
Ogungbe, who was well-known in his early 20s for helping to shape the Nigerian music scene with his Kennis Music label, posted photographs of his Passing Out Parade on Instagram with the caption,
“NYSC graduation/POP today.” Graduation day in Lagos/12C “All glory to God.”
The pictures elicited varied reactions on social media, with some speculating that Ogungbe could enter politics and others wondering if the 30-year age limit for the project has been lifted.

Kenny Ogungbe thinks he's smart. He wants to get involved in politics, so he quickly registered for Nysc. Lmao!

Is there no age limit for @nysc_ng again? I thought the age limit is 30 years? How were Kenny Ogungbe and the Minister of Art and Culture mobilised? Have they eventually suspended our constitution and Acts of the National Assembly?
