UNILAG Debunks Claim Of Issuing Honorary Doctorate Degree To E-Money

The University of Lagos, UNILAG, has denied reports which say they issued an honorary doctorate degree to Five Star Music CEO, Emeka Okonkwo popularly known as E-Money.

This was after pictures shared on Instagram by E-Money show him dressed in convocation gown at the University’s convocation.

He wrote;

To God be the glory! I have just received a Honorary Doctorate Degree in Business Management and Corporate Governance at an event held inside the University of Lagos.
I’m joined here by the incoming Deputy Governor of Lagos, Dr Obafemi Hamzat whose father, Olatunji Hamzat (an influential politician) also bagged a Doctorate Degree.

Below is a statement issued by UNILAG showing the list of people conferred with a doctorate degree with E-money’s name missing.
