Lateef Oladimeji Emotionally Receives Honorary Doctorate in Art and Culture

Nollywood actor Lateef Oladimeji has recently been honored with an honorary doctorate degree in the field of art and culture from a university in Benin Republic. The esteemed actor shared the news on his Instagram page on Tuesday, November 28, 2023, expressing his emotions in a heartfelt caption. The posted video captured the significant moment when representatives of the university bestowed the honor on the actor, recognizing his noteworthy contributions to the field.

In his caption, Lateef conveyed his emotional reaction, stating, “I was moved to tears as I got adorned in this beautiful robe. I have never been interested in fame; I just wanted to be happy with my craft and the lives that I inspire.” He revealed that the new title was an unexpected honor that he never imagined would come without the traditional academic pursuits of facing invigilators and late-night study sessions.

Lateef expressed gratitude for the great honor, attributing it to the fruits of his labor and his unwavering dedication and hard work in his chosen field. He reflected on the irony of his situation, having put in effort to master his craft and now being rewarded with an honorary doctorate.

The actor proudly announced his new title: “I humbly reintroduce myself, I AM DR. ABDULLATEEF ADEDIMEJI ADETOLA, Doctor of Philosophy in Art and Culture from Estam University, Benin.”

Lateef Oladimeji joins the ranks of distinguished Nigerian celebrities, including Mr. Macaroni and reality star Frodd, who were also honored with honorary doctorate degrees earlier in November.
