Nollywood actors, Ireti Doyle and Bob-Manuel Obidimma Udokwu have been conferred with honorary doctorate degrees from Institut Superieur de Communication et de Gestion University in Benin Republic.
Doyle announced the honour on Instagram, posting images from the occasion with her colleague, Udokwu, praising him on how far they have come since the time of the film “Living In Bondage.”
She wrote, “I have envisaged many things for myself and having put and still putting in the work, I have a healthy expectation of receiving ‘accolades.’ But at no point did I see this coming. Mommy would have been mighty proud! Dr. Doyle has a nice ring to it!✨️💫 #iscg_university__ I am highly honoured. Thank you!
“Congratulations also to my senior colleague Dr. #bobmanueludokwuofficial
Incidentally, he mentioned that ‘Living In Bondage,’ the movie that redefined and birthed the Nollywood we now have; was 30 years old to the day. We’ve come a mighty long way!”
