The rapper Skepta has been made a chief in his parents’ home state of Ogun in Nigeria.
The MC, who was born in north London, posted a video of the occasion on Instagram:
Skepta has been in Nigeria for a “Homecoming” concert, which he invited the likes of J Hus, Not3s, Wizkid and Davido to perform at in Lagos.
His chieftaincy title is “Amuludun of Odo Aje”, which literally means the “Chief Entertainer of Odo Aje”.
The grime artist has spent a lot of time in Nigeria over the past few years, performing at festivals and putting on his own shows.
The title he’s been given is for “entertainers in all forms”, according to BBC Lagos reporter Busayo Akogun.
