Duamlong, who studied Painting at the University, made the list of 112 students who bagged first class. 

Speaking to Daily Trust he said;  

“What prompted me to go back to the university at this age is because of my passion for art. All my life, I have always drawn but never painted. I like painting. I can draw but I can’t paint. So, after retiring in 2014, as a footballer, I stayed home doing nothing. That is why I decided to go back to school.”
