Skepta has been made a chief in his parents’ home state of Ogun in Nigeria.
The MC has been in Nigeria for a “Homecoming” concert, which he invited the likes of J Hus, Not3s, Wizkid and Davido to perform at.
His chieftaincy title is “Amuludun of Odo Aje”, which literally means the “Chief Entertainer of Odo Aje”.
“I am honoured and will continue to put time and love into Nigeria, especially the community of Odo Aje,” Skepta, who was born in north London, said.
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.
Chieftain titles are given in recognition of a positive contribution to community wellbeing – which Skepta’s done through entertainment.
