The Nollywood actor received a Doctorate in Literature, Doctorate in Arts, and a lifetime achievement award from ISTM University, Togo, on Saturday.
A video which surfaced online showed that representatives from the international university visited the actor at his home, and presented the awards to him in order to show recognition for his pivotal inputs to the creative industry.
“For all the works he has been doing, and he has been the pioneer in everything that all the younger ones are copying,” one of the representative said.
