Ganesha’s sleigh has recently become a topic of discussion on social media. Even the name of the former vocalist of the Nidji band had become trending.
This started with the news that Giring had become a student drop out (DO) at a private university in Newsdelivers.com in the odd semester of 2011. Giring Ganesha’s educational track record became a conversation after the general chairman of the Indonesian Solidarity Party (PSI) made a satire allegedly directed at the Governor of DKI Newsdelivers.com, Anies Baswedan.
Giring Ganesha finally opened his voice regarding issues that were widely circulated in cyberspace. In his upload on Instagram, Giring admitted that at that time he was faced with a difficult choice, namely to work or have a career in the music world with Nidji.
“Assalamualaikum, I am Giring and I am proud to have studied at Paramadina University. After several semesters, it turned out that I was faced with two choices of continuing my studies or building a career in the music industry,” said Giring.
“Then I chose to build my dream in a music career with Nidji. I chose music to pursue my dreams, that’s passion me,” he continued.
Giring admitted that he had to quit college because he didn’t want to bother his mother. At that time, Giring only hoped to make his mother happy.
“I don’t want to bother my mother who single parent since 1998 when my late father left us as a family. That’s how I had to swallow the harsh reality and didn’t have much choice. You have to choose work or college,” he explained.
“My goal was simple at that time, I wanted to be independent, I didn’t want to bother my mother who was single parent. I want my mother to be happy and I want to go to Hajj at that time with my mother,” he continued.
Giring also denied that he had ever met directly with Anies Baswedan. During college, he admitted that he had only met H. Nurcholis Madjid alias Cak Nur.
“And at the Paramadina campus I never met mas Anies in person. After I entered at that time, our rector was the late Haji Nurcholish Madjid alias Cak Nur. When Cak Nur died, I had time to take him to the funeral. So when Mas Anies became rector, I was no longer active on campus and, yes, my focus was, yes, building Nidji at that time,” said Giring.
Since his career soared with Nidji, Giring’s fortune has also increased. He can also realize his dreams in the past.
“Alhamdulillah Nidji later became one of the leading bands in Indonesia. Our songs were accepted, and financially thank God we also got a good fortune. And I was able to go on pilgrimage to Mecca with my mother,” recalled Nidji.
“Therefore, I am very hectic about being rumored to remember the struggles of my mother who single mother. Regarding higher education, I am passionate about fighting for free college because there are problems and experiences in my life that my friends don’t need to experience,” he concluded.
