Strathmore University students were surprised to see a compulsory exam question derived from an American hip hop song.
The question required students to explain three dangers of consumerism, a topic that Kendrick Lamar talked about in his song –Vanity Slave.
“In the words of Kendrick Lamar (popular rapper of the good kid, m.a.a.d city fame), ‘If you get your first big cheque and you cop before you buy a house. You’re a vanity slave.’ In the song, Vanity Slave, Mr. Lamar speaks openly about mindless consumerism. Explain three dangers of consumerism,” read the question.
The Business Ethics end of semester exam was done on Monday, July 11, by fourth year students studying finance, actuarial science and financial economics.
